This is a fun tower. My favorite part were the open windows that you could look out while remaining in the shade. The view from. The top was pretty fantastic.
We took our 3 kids, ages 6-16, and they all enjoyed it. Be sure to stop here as you drive by. Come early so you get a parking spot.

There is no hiking required to get to the tower as it is right off the road and has a large parking lot. The views are worth the climb, which is a fairly easy task. I can imagine that this location get packed later in the day, but we were there early so it wasn't busy and the total stop was about 10 minutes.

Easy climb to the top for some great views of the distant coastline and the forest canopy below. Parking is limited so expect to wait if it's full, or come back later in the afternoon.

Totally recommend stopping here if you're going to El Yunque because the view from the very top was cloudy. So this was the best view we got. You can see the ocean. Really beautiful!

Make reservations over the internet. Although you might be able to visit the non- reserve area of The Yunque, this tower is part of the area under the Federal Government for which you need permit and to pay for your entrance.

Really nice, must do. Get up the tower. Took me 3.5 minutes to get to the top and I'm not the fittest guy, but absolutely gorgeous.

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 views.

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 ladies.
The forest generally, that we saw was disappointing though.

Such beautiful views, can even see the ocean from the top of this tower! It is not a hike, just a little sidewalk to get to it from the parking lot.

The parking lot had lot of place due to restrictions on the entry. The walk to the top was exciting for the kids. At each floor, the scenery became more beautiful with the top being the best. The view of the ocean with town in the background was amazing. on the other side, the mountain peak view was great. They had soda and water for purchase at the entrance also.
