Directions: Yuquiyú is in a rural location without a street address. If you use Google Maps, be sure to select “Yuquiyú Treehouses” or use the following link: Yuquiyú Treehouses. You can also find us by using the maps and directions below. Travel time from the San Juan International Airport is 30 minutes. If you prefer the Scenic Route Along the Ocean, travel time is 55 minutes.
Rental car required: Guests should be aware that a rental car is essential due to a lack of public transportation, taxis and car service outside of San Juan.
Check-in: Check-in starts at 3 pm. In order to appreciate the starry night, there is no trail lighting. Therefore, it is best to make your initial arrival during dayight hours. We will meet you and show you to your treehouse. Since we have no porters, you will need to carry your own baggage. Kindly note that checking in before 3 pm is not possible due to the time required to thoroughly clean the treehouse before your arrival. To take advantage of any time you may have before then, we suggest that you consider our recommended restaurants and explorations. We would particularly suggest a visit to El Yunque’s Río Espíritu Santo Waterfall, 15 minutes away. How to get to the waterfall.
Check-out: Check-out is at 12 pm. Just leave the keys inside the treehouse and close the doors. After checking out, guests are welcome to store their baggage at our reception desk, and continue to enjoy the property until it’s time to depart for their next destination.
Telecommunications: All major cell phone carriers have coverage in our area. We do not have WiFi Internet.
Keeping in touch: If you have any questions or concerns, the best way to reach us is by a phone call to (212) 787-0500, a text message to the same number or a WhatsApp message to +12127870500.
Housekeeping: Additional housekeeping services are provided for stays of over three nights. The dates and times are shown in your guest registration.
Vegan/vegetarian: Yuquiyú is meat free (from any kind of animal, including mammals, fish, fowl and others). We ask guests to respect that principle by not bringing any meat onto the property. Restaurants offering a variety of cuisines are close by.
Breakfast: We provide everything you need to French press coffee from a Puerto Rican hacienda, brew an herbal tea from our farm and make a vegan breakfast of granola, coconut milk, cashews, dried figs and freshly-picked organic fruit. For vegetarians, we add half-and-half and Greek yogurt. On a hot afternoon, you will enjoy our organic lemonade. Kindly let us know if you would like more of any item. Guests can use the kitchenette to prepare food from a local supermarket.
Restaurant: Rastaurante, our vegan restaurant, will not open until the coming year.
Smoke Free: We are smoke free everywhere on the property except in the parking area.
Screens & repellents: The sleeping area of each treehouse is fully screened (older photos do not show the screens). There are no bothersome insects from dawn to dusk. From dusk to dawn, you can close the doors and windows — the wooden louvers let air in and the screens keep insects out. But, to better appreciate the gentle breezes and sounds of the rainforest at night, leave the doors and windows open. Even though we have few mosquitoes, you can reduce the risk of a bite by showering before going to bed and by applying the Repel Plant-Based Lemon Eucalyptus repellent or the Cutter Backwoods DEET-based repellent that we provide. Cutter Backwoods is more effective and longer lasting. Wind also is effective against mosquitoes. Set your floor fan to medium or high speed.
Explorations: With one of our treehouses as your base, you can discover the rainforest, multi-hued beaches, sea turtle nesting sites, coral reefs, a bioluminescent lagoon, ancient petroglyphs, a Spanish colonial city and Culebra Island. For an introduction, see our Explorations page. For details, see What Can I Do?.
