Yuquiyú is a rustic retreat in the foothills of Puerto Rico’s El Yunque rainforest that offers artisan-crafted treehouses with a balcony, designer furnishings, a granite kitchenette and a slate bath. The three-acre tropical garden comprises an organic farm, a cascading river and territorial rainforest views. Superbly located, Yuquiyú 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. Sea turtle nesting sites, coral reefs, a bioluminescent lagoon and ancient petroglyphs are near.
We currently are accepting reservations for La Cara de Indio and La Cascada treehouses. 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. The minimum stay is two consecutive nights. Each treehouse is suitable for a couple or a solo traveler without children or pets.

Within a mango grove, La Cara de Indio (The Indian Face) is named for a Taino petroglyph not far from the property. The treehouse features 144 square feet of interior space and an 84-square-foot balcony overlooking a panorama of El Yunque Rainforest. Below the main level and reached by a short path from the entry is a 90-square-foot, private bath that offers a slate interior, Kohler fixtures and a rain shower with a similar view of the rainforest.
