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 (1,400 mi.
North and South of the Equator).

Important for its biodiversity, El
Yunque is also known as a
as the Taíno people believed
that the good spirit
Yocahú Bagua
reigned on the sacred
mountain of Yuké, protecting the
land of Boriquén (now known as
Puerto Rico) and the Greater

Do you offer tours to Las Paylas and Las Tinajas?

Both Las Paylas and Las Tinajas are located on the
boundaries of El Yunque, off-limits of El Yunque National
Forest. The access to those areas are through private

Do you need to book through a tour company to go to
Las Paylas and Las Tinajas?

No, you don´t, but if you go, you need safety equipment. If you
book through a tour company, play it safe and make sure that
their company is legit and they have an insurance. Most of the
"accidents" reported in Puerto Rico in the outdoors take place
in Las Paylas and Las Tinajas.

Do you offer experiences?

Long before the word "experience" was introduced as a new
marketing tool for short term accommodations, we were already
offering private tours.  Tour and experience is basically the
same as long as you have an excellent Certified Tour Guide.

Through our signature tours you will have a complete sensory experience:  you will gaze at the stars while dancing
an areyto,  
smell the fragrance of early morning when you wake up in a restored coffee plantation, taste a cup of homemade
hug a champion tree in a secluded road, listen to the rhythm of the orchestral sounds as night arrives silently
in the rain forest,
feel the Energy of your Soul...memories you will cherish for the rest of your life.
