Rainforest Inn

Rio Grande, Caribbean

Nestled in the mountains of El Yunque, Puerto Rico, is the secluded, romantic and environmentally-responsible Rainforest Inn.

We want to give travelers a unique picture of Puerto Rico in a sustainable setting, to offer a retreat from the cluttered lives we lead and to make people feel at home in an exotic space. Our hallmark is surely the nature within and around the Rainforest Inn. From the zen-like peacefulness of our koi pond to the manicured grounds; from the massive agave plants to the breadfruit, starfruit and banana trees; from the sights atop our Lost Machete hike to the views of the Caribbean Sea from our Villa, we strive to bring our guests closer to nature and nature closer to our guests.

Committed to sustainability

We are committed to sustainability and environmental stewardship within El Yunque. We have taken every conceivable step within our reach to make the Rainforest Inn a place with very little environmental cost to the earth. All of our lights are warm LED and we have abstained from air conditioning in order to keep energy costs low (do not fret, the high-ceilings, fans and mountain breezes keep it nice and cool up here). We save water by utilizing El Yunque’s plentiful rain, collecting it in our numerous cisterns.

All of our food waste is thrown directly into a compost container that we use in the gardens throughout the property. In addition, we use no pesticides on any of our gardens so that our wildlife thrives and the friendly bats and anoles of the jungle keep the property free of mosquitos. We are also designing exciting eco-friendly projects for the near future: a large aquaponics greenhouse that will add to the local food we incorporate into the meals we cook for our guests, and an off-the-grid solar panel installation.

Our vegetarian meals

There are three rooms on property; the Chalet sleeps up to five people while the Villa sleeps up to four and the Jungle Suite is our most romantic room. Breakfast is included and served hot and fresh every morning at 9 a.m. A different vegetarian meal is served each day of the week. If guests have any dietary restrictions, we are more than happy to make something that suits their needs.

We also have a private hike that leads our guests to our private waterfall and natural swimming hole. If hiking is not a guest’s forte, we also offer yoga sessions or a professional massage.
