EL YUNQUES' MANY RIVERS AND WATERFALLS

The Cubuy River has many swimming spots
'Rio Blanco' below Casa Flamboyant & Casa Cubuy


If you are in Puerto Rico in the summer, when the sun on the beach is a killer, head up to the many rivers and pools in El Yunque. Clean and cool. At the elevations above housing the waters are safe to swim in, once the waters leave the mountains they quickly become contaminated.

• Warning, there are flash floods so any change in weather or water, get out quickly.

Swimming is great, once you get past the initial chill!
