We are perched above the Cubuy River (Coo-buoy), hence the name, Casa Cubuy.
The name originates from the Taino Indian language, meaning "wherever you step, there is water".


There are fewer and fewer places on Earth free from civilization. Ecotourists visit these places. Casa Cubuy Ecolodge, situated within the proclamation boundary of the El Yunque Rainforest is such a facility because:

  • We have a small footprint in the forest

  • We generate our own electricity with solar panels

  • We are at the highest altitude(1,500ft) in El Yunque

  • We recycle and compost

  • We urge our guests to take nothing out of the forest and leave only footprints

  • We participate in community efforts to preserve and protect the forest


In the minds of some, the term “ecolodge” is associated with bare bones accommodations, one step up from camping. This is not us. We provide the comforts and amenities to merit a 4-5 star rating from our guests over our 20+ year history. 

Casa Cubuy Ecolodge is a special, tranquil place whereyou can contemplate the wonder and beauty of the rain forestthat surrounds you. Sunbathe on granite slabs and boulders wornsmooth by eons of cascading waters. Slip into a natural jacuzzi and let the water gently massage away the tensions of city life. Relax in a hammock on the verandah, read, or just watch the clouds float by in this setting of giant tree ferns, soaring breadfruit trees, and wild orchids. Explore trails to prehistoric Indian rock carvings. Guests now have access to a fully equipped kitchen located on our upper level with plenty of seating to enjoy a meal with a view.  


Casa Cubuy is located above Naguabo in Eastern Puerto Rico. This quiet retreat lies nearly at the top of the road on the south side of the mountain and offers a less stressful alternative than the busy North side of the El Yunque Rainforest. . Casa Cubuy is perched on a hill above a river with many waterfalls. A short uphill trek from the house on a paved road brings you to the new El Yunque National Forest recreational facility, where interpretive guides may offer forest hikes.
