Decided to stop and walk up the steps of the observation tower. Glad we did. The view from the top was amazing. It's a small area so be mindful of others. Everyone was friendly and taking pics without issue. A great view of the Forest.

About 90 steps - but not too difficult to climb. Worth it for the excellent views and breeze. Good photo opportunity to capture the surroundings and the panorama.

If you are able to climb the stairs, this is a place where you can get a great view. As you go up, you can take pictures through the open slots.

This was one of our first stops in the El Yunque Rain Forest. Once you get to the top you can see amazing views of the rainforest.

Easy parking allows you to pop out of the car and walk about 100 meters over to the tower. A great spot to take photos.

Nice walk up a wide spiral staircase with a barrier down the middle to help avoid collisions! The tower is only 50 years old but looks much older...Incredible views and maps to help you make out what you're looking at--you can probably see where you're...More

It's probably too late, but there is no charge to park anywhere in El Yunque. The only fee is to go to the visitors center and it's reasonable and worth a stop.
