What is a tropical rain forest?
A tropical rain forest occurs inside the World's
equatorial regions in areas of heavy rainfall. This
type of forest is restricted between the latitudes
22.5° N and 22.5° S of the equator, in other
words, between the Tropic of Capricorn and the
Tropic of Cancer or 1,400 mi. North and South
of the Equator.
Important for its biodiversity, El Yunque is also
known as a sacred place as the Taíno people
believed that the good spirit Yocahú Bagua
Maorocoti reigned on the sacred mountain of
Yuké, protecting the land of Boriquén (now
known as Puerto Rico) and the Greater Antilles.
|If you are traveling with kids and
prefer to go on your own, a
