Description

To find the real Puerto Rico the one that shopping malls and condos have yet to reach head for the towns and villages of the Cordillera Central, or Central Mountains. Bisected by the Ruta Panoramica (Scenic Route), the mountains provide a relaxing getaway with an atmosphere so unlike the coast that it feels like an entirely different island. The Ruta Panormica is a driving adventure covering more than a hundred miles of countryside, including coffee plantations, old jbaro country and four forests: Carite, Toro Negro, Guilarte and Maricao. Along the route are valleys, canyons, wide-open terraces and views of the Atlantic and the Caribbean. Visitors who don't have time to do the whole Ruta Panormica might consider a driving tour starting out from San Juan to the San Cristobal canyon in Aibonito, returning via Barranquitas easily doable in a day if you start out early. Or take a few days to enjoy secluded swimming holes, hiking trails, cloud forest and the hospitality of the mountain locals. This guide tells you everything about the region: where to stay & eat, what to see & do, how to get around, the history & culture, the fiestas & the cuisine. Filled with maps & photos.show more
