Lonely Planet review
If listening to a frog symphony, conversing nightly around the dinner table, and relaxing on a shady balcony within hammock-swinging distance of a mystical tropical rainforest has you dashing for your jungle apparel, then this could be your place. Cocooned atop the winding Hwy 191 on El Yunque’s wild and isolated southern slopes, Casa Cubuy Ecolodge offers a welcome antidote to the modern Puerto Rico of crowded beaches and spirit-crushing traffic. Ten cozy rooms rise just inches from the ethereal green forest, and a covered communal patio replete with games and books encourages multilingual guest interaction. To top it all, the lodge even guards its own private trail to a nearby waterfall and natural swimming pool. For something a bit more upscale, ask about its three Sierra Palms rooms (doubles with breakfast $130) just down the road. It also operates a nearby restaurant in season.
