Gain a new perspective of the forest on top of Yokahu Observation Tower, a cylindrical viewing tower located in El Yunque National Forest. Climb the 100 steps to the viewing platform at the top of the building to get sweeping views of the trees and hills of the impressive natural surroundings. Constructed in 1963, the tower has a twin elsewhere in the forest, though at a higher elevation and deeper into the park, the second is harder to access and frequently obscured by clouds. Plan my El Yunque National Forest trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Yokahu Observation Tower Reviews
Easy to get to the top of this tower. Probably nice views on a clear day but we were in clouds with a little rain. more »
It's pretty simple, like the title states, it's a tower with a view. You climb up reasonably wide steps inside all the way to the top and you have a very nice view of the surrounding mountain tops... more »
This provides a beautiful view! I had a lot of fun with my friends here. There's cute souvenirs at the entrance and it doesn't take much to reach to the top. There's portable bathrooms near the attraction. As well as a little stand that provides drinks and snacks.
Great history and there are multiple towers through the national forest. You can take a tour or just drive up yourself and stop at each spot. Very well organized park because they give you maps on where to go and theres a cool small gift shop (they are good priced too compared to other shops in town).
