This is the original 'Rainforest Inn' establilshed in 1995 in El Verde. Owned and operated by Bill & Renee.

Why stay up in the rain forest? A million Coquí's, gentle rain showers, cool mountain breezes. Panoramic views. The best sleep you ever had. The 'Rainforest Inn' is at the top of a mile long private drive accessed through a secure electronic gate. You are not just visiting the rainforest, you are immersed in the sounds and scents of the rainforest. Days are surprisingly warm and sunny here! Nights are cool. So very close to the world below, yet miles away in spirit.

Sheer tropical indulgence consists of driving 15 minutes down the mountain to the sea, then up the mountain again in the late afternoon to a cool retreat where the only sounds are those of the wind, rain and a million Coqui frogs singing you to sleep.

Up the road, 'The Lost Machete Hike' winds through the jungle and ends at one of the rivers larger pools. This is a private trail where you will not encounter others. Bill will guide you on an amazing hike, if you arrange it, Laurie is a flower and plant expert and can show you around the grounds and point out the exotic orchids and tropicals they grow. After you enjoy your
pina colada welcome drink ask Laurie or Bill to see their next project; the tree-top jungle suite with the unusual hanging beds.

There are dogs on the property (well behaved dogs) and a cat too.

Located east of San Juan, halfway to Fajardo. It is a 15 minutes drive down the mountain to the main road #3 by Rio Grande, 45 minutes to the airport and 20 minutes to Luquillo Beach. You will need to have a rental car to stay here.
