El Yunque rainforest lodging and villa rentals

The El Yunque National Forest consists of 'wet forest' with the higher elevations being, uniquely, 'tropical rainforest' and at the very top of the rainforest, along the ridges, lies the 'dwarf forest'. Everything below the actual rainforest line ( an ecological boundary with defined characteristics ) is 'wet forest' and there are many lodgings surrounding the El Yunque National Forest boundaries that are within the 'wet forest' with more or less easy access to the park entrances that go up into the actual rainforest..
