How to get here from Fajardo

Follow Avenida El Conquistador south to PR # 3. Turn right on PR # 3 and follow it for approximately 15.7 kilometers/9.8 miles (through Fajardo and past the communities of Luquillo and Fortuna) until you see the sign for "Palmer-El Yunque" on your left. Turn left at the traffic signal and follow the road through the village of Palmer until you see the sign for PR Road # 191. (Hint: there is a restaurant called "Noname", painted a bright-turquoise on the corner!) Turn left on PR # 191 and follow it for approximately 4 kilometers/2 miles until you see the El Yunque National Forest sign. The entrance to the El Portal Rain Forest Center is on your right-hand side just after you enter the forest.
