Gain a new perspective of the forest on top of Yokahu Observation Tower, a cylindrical viewing tower located in El Yunque National Forest. Climb the 100 steps to the viewing platform at the top of the building to get sweeping views of the trees and hills of the impressive natural surroundings. Constructed in 1963, the tower has a twin elsewhere in the forest, though at a higher elevation and deeper into the park, the second is harder to access and frequently obscured by clouds. Plan my El Yunque National Forest trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • Amazing 360 degree views from the beach to the mountain peaks. There is no hiking required, just a paved path from the parking lot of the tower and the steps up. Definitely worth the stop for the...

  • Worth the climb up the spiral steps to the top for the view if you are in the forest area. It was busy when we were there as several groups. Toilets on site but a long queue as always for the...

  • easy to access. there is a parking lot right next to the tower. walking up with tower provides you with the most beautiful views of the rainforest. it takes about 3 minutes to walk straight up to the top but definitely peak put of all the view points as you walk up. if you're like me, you're scared of heights but just don't stand close to the edge and it'll be worth it! bonus for the spooky people out there - it's rumored to be haunted 👻
  • Beautiful place, you can go up to the top and enjoy the view
