Your surrounding environment and El Yunque National Forest
Rich, green foliage hiding streams, rivers, waterfalls and a wide array of birds and forest await your arrival. And such diverse flora abounds that the estate has been temporary home to many photographers and artists while they attempted to capture the unque spell of exotic flowers of every color. Birds like the Puerto Rican Tody (locally called ‘San Pedrito”), the endangered Puerto Rican Parrot (only seen in a few hidden areas) and the Pin-tailed Whydah bring the skies and trees alive with color and motion. And no one can visit Casa Flamboyant without commenting on the singing of the small Coquí tree frogs. After you have stayed here for a few days...it is the comfort of their nightly symphonies that you miss most of all.
Check out a feature article about Casa Flamboyant by Huffington Post writer & travel blogger Alyssa Ramos.

San Juan, with it’s historic center and international airport, is a little more than an hour away. San Juan is the capital and most populous city (about 500,000 residents) in Puerto Rico. Founded in 1521 by Juan Ponce de León, who named it City of Puerto Rico ("Rich Port"). The capital of Puerto Rico is the oldest city under U.S. jurisdiction. (St. Augustine, Florida, founded in 1565 is the oldest city in the continental United States.) With wonderful museums, historic architecture, casinos, beaches, cultural festivals, fine dining and shopping and international banking opportunites, you will find San Juan to be a convenient and wonderful asset.
