A great day trip from Buenos Aires is to El Tigre. Settled during a yellow fever epidemic, it was a destination of escape for the well heeled. It still has a nice laid-back feel and is a great place to go for a stroll.

Re: El Yunque: A visit to the rain forest

DrFumblefinger ·
A great visit and a great hike! Seems like you had nice weather. Was it wet underfoot? Trails have good traction or was slipping and sliding a problem?
Comment

Re: El Yunque: A visit to the rain forest

PHeymont ·
Ah, yes...that's something I left out. Traction on the trails was just fine...until it started to rain on our way back to the trailhead. That's when we realized the obvious: in a rain forest, it rains. And of course, the umbrellas were in San Juan. And the overpriced ponchos were in the car, back at the trailhead!
