I visited with Acampa Tours. Top notch guides Christina, and Raymond skillful and patiently guided us through the rainforest, pointing out all of the varied faun and flora Toro Negro had to offer. The waterfalls were both beautiful and refreshing as we worked or way through the trails and eventually to a nice authentic Puerto Rican Lunch. I would highly... More

I have been camping at the Viveros campsite part of the Toro Negro Reserve during the past 35 years. It is the best camping site with facilities available in Puerto Rico and it is part of a beautiful forest and natural reserve. This camp area can accommodate about 40 people distributed in 6 campsites each of which is provided with... More

Worth the nerve racking narrow roads with hair pin turns! You'll need GPS to actually find the Forest center, but it is worth the drive and hunt! Interestingly, the forest contained more flowering trees than the rain forest. The bamboo outcroppings were stunning.

We camped in Toro Negro for two nights. If you want to get away from the tourists of El Yunque and hike on uncrowded trails through beautiful landscape, this is a good option! The campground only has several spots, but each site comes with a covered pavilion with a picnic table and built in bench seating around the outside. There's... More

There is long walk to get there, but is worth it!! I climb to the top of the mountain, where a post tower from the time of the Spaniard still stand. The view is breathtaking, there is no mountain tops higher, just clouds that you think you can touch. From there you can see the southern coast and the beautiful... More

My boyfriend and I visited the forest on a weekday. It was absolutely beautiful! There are many hikes in the park. Be careful driving up the narrow and curvy road.

I arrived close to 17:00 in March 2012, ready to camp. No one was around, save for one family I saw leaving the reserve. My guidebook mentioned there is always someone at the security office who could issue me the camping permit. However, I only saw one building (I assume it was the DRNA building- not security) and it was... More

I've been to every camp site in the island and this one is just breathtaking. I must say it does get cold... (the area is called "El Frio") so be sure to take your sweaters and a nice sleeping bag. It's a safe place with a river right next to the camping area that takes you to a natural swimming... More
