Optional Social Outing - El Yunque National Forest
Friday, 13 December 2019
12:30 - 18:00
Join us for an excursion to the El Yunque National Forest, the only tropical rain forest in the U.S. national forest system. Leaving Friday at 12:30 pm, we'll take a 45-minute bus ride to the rainforest, stopping along the way for lunch. At the rainforest we'll take a guided tour, including stops at the scenic Coco Falls, Yukaho tower (climb the 95 steps to the top for a scenic view of the ocean above the rainforest canopy). Walk down (steep steps and dirt trail) to La Mina Falls (bring your bathing suit for a swim if desired), and rejoin the bus for the trip back to the hotel, arriving about 6:00 pm. Find more information about the forest at https://www.fs.usda.gov/elyunque/.
Cost is $95, which includes bus transportation, admission fees, and lunch.
