Ruta Panorámica Travel Guide
Fodor's Puerto Rico
The Ruta Panorámica, or Panoramic Route, is an unforgettable overland journey that reveals rugged beauty and tranquil woodlands not found anywhere else on the island. It's an unruly road that clambers its way through the forests of Puerto Rico's mountainous interior. Towering trees create canopies over the narrow roads, and in their shade pink and purple impatiens bloom in profusion. You'll drive through sleepy colonial villages named for their Taíno descendants, discover trails leading to secret waterfalls, and behold one breathtaking vista after another.
Fodor's local writers visit every hotel we recommend. Look for our discerning Fodor's Choice picks or search by price and location.
