El Yunque Rain Forest Reviews
Ce que la nature fait de mieux en combinant pluies perpétuelles, soleil intermittent et forte chaleur et moyennes montagnes. Deux cent types de végétaux différents, souvent exubérants et gigantesques.... more »What nature does best by combining perpetual rains, intermittent sun and high heat and medium mountains. Two hundred different types of plants, often exuberant and gigantic. Great stunts. And even artificial pools now abandoned, built at a time when U.S. investors would have wanted to turn this park into an amusement park ... Especially going there early in the morning, to be quiet.
La naturaleza fue generosa con la isla, tienen una extraordinaria variedad de plantas y animales preciosos, sus riachuelos hermosos y la pureza de su aire. more »Nature was generous to the island, they have an extraordinary variety of precious plants and animals, their beautiful streams and the purity of their air.
