More about Parador El Guajataca

Guajataca State Forest

by bsfreeloader

It takes some work to get to, but the rewards offered by Bosque Estatal de Guajataca (Guajataca State Forest) make it a place definitely worth visiting. This underutilized gem offers some of the best hiking and birding in Puerto Rico, with a fraction of the crowds of more popular destinations such as El Yunque. Miles of hiking trails wind through the forest’s 2300 acres, providing a nice introduction to the area’s karst landscape. The park, which is located in northwest Puerto Rico, can be reached by taking Route 446 south from Highway 2.

Hiking Guajataca State Forest

by bsfreeloader

With miles of legitimate hiking trails (as opposed to most of the “trails” in Puerto Rico’s parks, which are abandoned roads), Guajataca State Forest offers some of the best hiking on the island. Many of the trails, including a 1.5-mile interpretive trail lead to or emanate from the campgrounds located near the forest entrance. The trails wind their way through the wet limestone forest, with one trail (Trail #1) leading to a cave. In addition to the many different species of plants, the area is alive with birds, lizards, and other creatures which thrive in such habitats.

Birding Guajataca State Forest

by bsfreeloader

Of all the places I went birdwatching in Puerto Rico, Guajataca State Forest was by far the birdiest. Puerto Rican Vireos called incessantly, and several other Puerto Rican endemics were present in good numbers. Puerto Rican Lizard Cuckoo, Puerto Rican Emerald, Puerto Rican Tody, Puerto Rican Woodpecker, Puerto Rican Tanager, Puerto Rican Stripe-headed Tanager, Puerto Rican Bullfinch, and Puerto Rican Pewee were all relatively easy to find. Also present and easily found were Black-whiskered Vireo, Ruddy Quail-Dove, Red-legged Thrush, Pearly-eyed Thrasher, and several species of warbler, including Adelaide’s, Black-throated Blue, and Northern Parula. All of these birds were seen on the trails leading to and emanating from the campgrounds near the forest entrance.

En Mi Viejo San Juan

""El Morro""

Castillo de San Felipe del Morro is a fortress built by the Spanish Conquistadors to protect the city against any attacks. It was strategically located with a vantage view of the San Juan Bay.

"Garita del Diablo"

The Devil's Watchtower
Legends say that many guards would enter the towers at night to start their watch and they would disappear. The supersticious would say it was the devil,but the truth was that on a moonless night it got very scary and the guards would leave their posts and nobody would admit to it.

"Los Adoquines"

The Cobblestone

These cobblestones have been witness to millions of visitors and many of these cobblestones have survived 400+ years.
They hold many memories. If you ask many native puertoricans they could tell you a couple stories.
I will always keep a special memory of them in my heart. For it was here where I learned to walk,run and dance. On these cobblestones I had my first blister,I broke my first heel,I kissed my first boyfriend, I spilled my first drink. A lot of partying have gone on these grey and blue streets.
I invite you to walk them,run them,dance them. Create your own memories.

"La Rogativa"

Legend says that while the Spanish Army was away the English or the Irish tried to invade the city. Their ships were seen entering the bay. In desperation the Cardinal gathered Nuns,Women,and Children and marched with torches to one of the main gates, where they recited prayer after prayer. From afar the invaders translated the lights and the murmurs into a massive army of men and decided to retreat many jumping ship. The prayers worked. Today this inmense verdi gris statue marks the spot where ingenuity and prayer conquered all.

"Las Casitas de San Juan"

In its effort of historical preservation the Cultural Institute of Puerto Rico
has strict rules for the color palette used in Old San Juan adding to its picturesque views.

When I come and visit and drive up the hill and encounter this casitas I know I've come home.
