Places To Go

Puerto Rico can be divided into six different regions:

  • North
  • South
  • East
  • West
  • Central
  • Metro

Located approximately 30 miles southeast of San Juan, in the eastern region, El Yunque National Forest is the sole tropical rain forest in the U.S. National Forest System. The forest’s relatively small 28,000 acre size belies its importance. It differs significantly from all the other U.S. National Forests because of its year-round tropical climate and immense biodiversity. For more information regarding conditions and closures, you can visit the Official Website of El Yunque National Forest.

There is plenty to discover on the island. For more travel information, tips, and more, please visit Puerto Rico's Official Tourism Website.
