Yuquiyu is a small eco-resort on the edge of El Yunque rainforest in Puerto Rico. Named in honor of the Taino natives' god of creation, this exclusive retreat is a place to reawaken the senses in harmony with nature. You'll be inspired by the view from your villa, the tranquility of the tropical garden, museum-quality art, Caribbean cuisine, rejuvenating spa therapies and island explorations.

A serene hilltop overlooking the Tainos' sacred land... Most of all, Yuquiyu is about tranquility. You can watch clouds swirl around rainforest peaks, walk in the woods, meditate by the river and contemplate the starry night. Birds of paradise, royal palms and giant tree ferns provide beauty and shade from a brilliant sun, while blossoms of ylang-ylang perfume the air. Gentle trade winds, the haunting calls of the Puerto Rican Screech-Owl and singing tree frogs create a peaceful and enlivening ambiance. A chance to rediscover yourself... Yuquiyu is within an area of northeastern Puerto Rico the Sierra Club believes should be "a prime destination for ecotourism". The resort is only ten minutes from the heart of El Yunque rainforest and fifteen minutes from famed Luquillo Beach. With a guide or on your own, discover the rainforest, multi-hued beaches, coral reefs, a bioluminescent lagoon, ancient petroglyphs and a Spanish colonial city. In doing so, you'll have a chance to rediscover yourself.
