Find yourself in a luxury resort by a rainforest located less than an hour from the Puerto Rico capital city, San Juan. Just pick up and go as no passport is required for U.S. citizens but you’ll need to present a government-issued photo ID such as your driver’s license*.
Book a very cheap flight from ATL (and under 4 hours nonstop) and enjoy a treehouse adventure just made for two. Yuquiyu Farm is located fifteen minutes to the heart of the El Yunque rainforest, twenty minutes to famed Luquillo Beach and 35 minutes to Old San Juan.
Built on the side of a canyon, the humble dwellings float on pillars among the trees in an outcropping of massive boulders. Above are the three terraces of an organic farm, below is a cascading river and beyond is the rainforest.
It’s secluded, luxuriant and serene, and perfect for a couple seeking a romantic escape, newlyweds seeking a honeymoon destination or an artist seeking inspiration. Yuquiyu Farm is not for everyone, but only for those with a sense of adventure, love being close to nature and want to experience Caribbean living the way it ought to be. You’ll also need to be able to ascend up wooden staircases to your treehome.
You’ll be glamping in an artisan-crafted treehouse with a Queen bed, a balcony, designer furnishings, a granite kitchenette, ceiling fans and a slate bath with rainfall showers. There are no TVs but Wi-Fi. Each treehouse has an iconic view of El Yunque Peak. Leave the windows open for the trade winds, river and moonlight and to hear singing tree frogs.
Rates from $300 per night. You can add dinner for $45 each. Reservations must be made at least two days in advance. The farm is meat-free and smoke-free.
You won’t be bored! Here’s your chance to experience Bio Bay and much more!
