Directory of El Yunque lodging on the north side of the rainforest


We are all owner-operated small inns and vacation rental homes. We're here because we love the rainforest and we have opened our homes to guests so that we can share that experience.


Why stay on the north side?

  • We're only forty-five minutes from San Juan and it's a straight easy run on the new toll way route 66.
  • This is the "tourist" area with many fine restaurants and things to do, hang gliding, horse back riding on the beach, snorkling, sailing and hiking (of course). Everything is here.
  • Bio-bay kayaking and the ferries to Vieques and Culebra are just twenty minutes away.


Each inn below is highly recommended because we know the owners and have had tours of the properties. The short descriptions are to help you decide which one to pick although you will need to follow the links to each of their website to check availability. All of the inns have booking calendars on their websites.

El Yunque Rainforest Inn

el yunque bed and breakfastThis lodging is a true bed and breakfast for adults and children twelve and older. Because the property borders the El Yunque rainforest there is "walk to forest" access. The owners, Bill & Laurie, live on the property and serve a complete breakfast at nine am each morning. The accommodations are two complete homes both with two-bedrooms and one with a complete kitchen and the other with a wet bar. There is no air conditioning as this is an eco-lodge high in the cool rainforest and the jungle night sounds lull you to sleep. No phones, radio or TV but free WIFI is included (we know what's important). A private trail leads to a secluded pool above a waterfall right off the property.

Go to the rainforest inn website for more information about the property and to see the availability calendar and to make a reservation. Call Bill & Laurie at (800) 672-4992 if you have any questions after viewing the website.
