El Yunque without climbing down


i'm traveling with some elders who won't be able to climb down any trail. Is it worthwhile going to the forest and see anything without climbing down to the falls or outside of the trails, there really isn't much more?

I think it would be worth it to drive through the park. It's beautiful. One waterfall is right near the road. They might like the Visitor's Center, too. There is a movie about El Yunque. It's $4 per person for the Visitor's Center.

I agree that the elders may enjoy the drive through the park. The roads wind about quite a bit, so the ride itself is interesting.

I have taken age impaired family members and friends up the mountain many times stopping at the several lookout points on the way up and they have always enjoyed it.
