Casa Cubuy Eco Lodge
Route 191 Km 22, Rio Blanco, Puerto Rico
Situated on the South side of El Yunque Rainforest, Casa Cubuy offers comfortable lodgings where you are surrounded by the beauty and wonders of this lush rain forest. Sunbathe on granite boulders worn smooth by eons of swirling waters, relax in a hammock on the verandah, read, or watch the clouds roll by in this peaceful setting of giant tree ferns, towering breadfruit trees, cascading waterfalls, and wild orchids.
From the ecolodge you can take easily walkable trails, which lead to the Cubuy and Sabana River pools, ideal for swimming. You'll feel dwarfed amidst the bamboo, palms, fern trees, and colorful flora of the jungle. Waters at this elevation are clean enough to drink and refreshingly cool. You can hear the rushing sound of the waterfalls from your bedroom. Here, you will find birds, lizards, and the popular coqui frog!
Just a short trek up the road brings you to the El Yunque National Park entrance, which provides a number of different hiking trail options. Whether you prefer leisure walks through swaying bamboo or (for the experienced hiker in search of a challenge) the rugged terrain of the more difficult trails, we promise you an unforgettable vacation hiking, swimming, and relaxing in this remote paradise.
We are famous for our complementary fresh fruit breakfasts served at 9:00 AM. Guests have a chance to meet over coffee at 8:00 AM so that sitting down to breakfast becomes more like a gathering of friends. We at Casa Cubuy believe it is not necessarily the destination that makes travelers' experiences unforgettable, but rather the people they meet and share those experiences with. It is not unusual to hear four languages spoken at one time around the table!
Breakfast always begins with three big lazy susans piled with fresh sliced mangoes, papaya, pineapple, melon and bananas. The main course menu is served on a rotating basis and consists of French toast, pancakes, scrambled eggs with hash browns, omelets, or hot and cold cereals with toast, pastries, and hard-boiled eggs.
Free Wifi is provided, so don?t hesitate to bring your laptop if you need internet access. There is no television or air-conditioning in our rooms (we are high enough to remain nicely cool throughout all seasons).
