“Yuquiyú exalts not only the impressive beauty of our native land but also the rich culture of our ancestors...”

– Carmen Dominicci, Univision

 

A rustic retreat hidden in the foothills of Puerto Rico’s El Yunque rainforest, Yuquiyú is a place to reawaken the senses in harmony with nature. Artisan-crafted treehouses float on pillars among the trees of a three-acre tropical garden highlighted by an organic farm, a cascading river and territorial rainforest views. Each treehouse has electricity, hot-and-cold running water, a balcony, granite kitchenette, slate bath and stylish furnishings. The experience is glamorous camping, known as “glamping”. Superbly located, the property is just ten minutes from the heart of the rainforest, twenty minutes from famed Luquillo Beach, twenty-five minutes from the San Juan Airport and thirty minutes from Old San Juan. Multi-hued beaches, coral reefs, a bioluminescent lagoon and ancient petroglyphs are near.

We currently are accepting reservations for La Cara de Indio and La Cascada treehouses for stays beginning on 15 November 2016. There is a two-night minimum. Our inaugural rate for La Cara de Indio is $150 per night plus 7% tax, and our inaugural rate for La Cascada is $175 per night plus 7% tax. Each treehouse is suitable for a couple or a single without children or pets. The fully-screened interior contains a queen-size “Longhorn” sofa bed by Danish designer Per Weiss and handmade cabinetry. The kitchenette provides everything you need to French press your morning coffee, steep an herbal tea and make a vegan breakfast of coconut milk, cashews, dried figs and freshly-picked organic fruit. For vegetarians and others, we add yogurt. See all of the details.

 

Opens 15 November • Inaugural rates from $150 per night per treehouse • Ask a question or request a reservation • 212-787-0500

El Mirador (The Lookout), is located near the entrance of the property, next to the organic farm. The treehouse currently serves as our reception area. It features 144 square feet of interior space and an 84-square-foot balcony with a commanding view of El Yunque Rainforest. La Lluvia (The Rain) is down the trail from El Mirador reception area. The 121-foot-square bathhouse may be used by early-arriving and late-departing guests. It features construction of plantation-grown Southern Yellow Pine (as are all of the structures), Chinese slate walls and floor, a travertine partition, Kohler Tresham Collection fixtures, aritsan-crafted cabinets and mirrors, a rain shower with a rainforest view, a teak shower bench and a balcony, where you can sit in the sun while you're drying off. There are two armchairs and two side tables. Underneath and available for guest use is a laundry with a utility sink, washer, dryer and table for folding clothes. La Cara de Indio and La Cascada are described above.
