The Rainforest Inn's Lost Machete Hike
Venture into the El Yunque jungle where adventure is the norm, and one misplaced step can send you sliding down the mountainside, entangled in vines never to be seen again. Your companions go on without you and mourn your passing into the enchanted Rainforest El Yunque. Maybe the ghost stories really are true?
Okay, so we are exaggerating just a little. However, The Lost Machete Hike is not an easy hiking trail. We do have a legal disclaimer for you to sign. You were looking for an adventure, right? This is our property's private trail! There are several very steep areas, and the rocks and boulders of the beautiful stream (that will remain nameless to protect the trail's anonymity) are very slippery. The trail is very well maintained, and if you're lucky, you might see one of the resident boa constrictors lying about. Now that you have learned of some of the dangers, let's explore the unique beauty that will make risking these wilds all worth while.
One step off the pavement and you will immediately feel the jungle surround you. At the trails end you will experience a waterfall that very few people have seen up close. Perch upon a boulder that is yours for the day, and join the cadre of hikers that have enjoyed these descending waters, and bathed in the pools, contemplating an awesome vista of the Caribbean Sea.
Privacy here is a premium. The Lost Machete Hike may be the the most memorable adventure you embark on, on the Isla Del Encanto. Some of our guests have even proposed at the pool above the waterfall.
