How our store works from exploration to home decor and other products: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJlyu19RQS8&t=28s ...   There is no lack of places to stay near El Yunque all year long.

These are Raul hints to make the best of a whole day in EYNF - Option 2. Firo in the forest We assume you have done Option 1 - this is basic.
