What is a rain forest? In the case of El Yunque in Puerto Rico it is all about being the first mountain to face the wind and catch all the rain. The El Yunque Rain Forest is a cool, mountainous, sub tropical rainforest. The Eastern side of the Luquillo Mountains, which has the El Yunque rainforest at the top elevations, gets most of the rain. from the elyunque.com website.

We saw these spectacular ferns in the El Junque Rainforest in San Juan, Puerto Rico. We were in port while cruising in the Southern Caribbean Sea on the Caribbean Princess cruise ship.
