The Rain Forest

La Coca FallsOn our next to last day of our cruise we went to La Cocoa Falls located in El Yunque Rain Forest in Puerto Rico.  I had not been up to El Yunque for 45 years.  The rain forest has been developed by the park service since then and they have built a main visitor’s building near the base and several other areas for stopping.  They have developed many trails which offer varying degrees of difficulty. 

The first time my late wife and I drove to the top by ourselves in a rented car.  Without a tour guide a must have missed the falls.  This time we went in a van with other people and a very informative guide.   The falls are inspiring even with a bunch of people standing around.  The picture has been processed to lighten up for detail and color.  If you visit La Coca Falls remember it is a rain forest with almost a daily rain fall.  Some kind of rain gear is recommended.
