El Portal Trail is a short loop trail (0.3 miles) within the land of what it
used to be a coffee plantation, La Catalina; henceforth, an excellent
example of Secondary Forest.
While we walk in search of critters, and depending on the season,
you will see coffee, breadfruit, plantain, and papaya trees coexisting
with endemic, native, and exotic species.
We will be looking for newborn coquis, glow-in-the-dark mushrooms,
lizards, and other critters.
While the Night Owling is done in the parking lot area, the walk
includes the parking area and the trail.
Difficulty: Easy to moderate.
Imagine yourself growing over 1,400 feet above sea level, with
exposed buttress roots helping you to stabilize on unstable soils
near river banks and steep cliff edges? The shallowness of the soil
makes you the dominant species at this height of the Forest. But
you are not alone, other trees, plants, and shrubs have adapted,
including your two friends: the old trees with red crooked bark and
those tall tress with a strong distinctive fragrance.
This is home for three important species growing at El Yunque:
Sierra Palm (Prestoea montana), Tabonuco (Dacryodes excelsa),
and Palo colorado (Cyrilla racemiflora).
We will be looking at everything: from small flowerless briophytes,
elegant giant tree ferns, diminute newborn coquis, glow-in-the-dark
mushrooms, bats, owls, and any other critter showing up.
We are back with our nocturnal activities with a second exclusive
location in the upper level of the Forest.
Regular night hikes are available on a daily for private groups
only. Moonless and Full Moon are available once a month. What
happens when you combine El Yunque Hidden Wonders with a night
hike? You get The Hybrid! This is your best opportunity to explore
El Yunque during daytime and nighttime.
Sorry, this activities is not sold individually unless it is offered as a
SPECIAL SHARED EVENT. In honor of our beloved Beba, part of the
proceedings will go to Luquillo Safe Haven For Animals Corp. Feel
free to bring dog food or cleaning products.
