“Before Columbus, yuquiyu would have been the Taino name of a secretive place like this one

where tame human voices fall silent in the wild presence of overgrown beauty…”

Margarita Engle

 

The indigenous people of Puerto Rico believed that their god Yuquiyú dwelled in ithe rainforest’s cloud-covered peaks. “Yuquiyú” also meant a natural place so beautiful they could feel the presence of that god. To honor him, we have spent ten years creating a three-acre garden with vistas that could have inspired a Chinese landscape painting. Tropical plants and a thousand palms provide beauty and shade from a brilliant sun, while blossoms of ylang-ylang perfume the air. Gentle trade winds, the sound of the river and singing tree frogs create a peaceful and enlivening ambiance. Most of all, Yuquiyú is about tranquility — you can watch clouds swirl around rainforest peaks, walk in the woods, meditate by the river, rejuvenate in a natural pool, be enchanted by the moon and contemplate the starry night.
