Toro Negro Mountain House

 The most incredible views


The most amazing time of you lives here , it’s located just close enough to go anywhere on the island and be back in time for a beautiful jungle sunset , Best sleep I’ve ever had in my life as well , the breeze and sounds are wonderful. So grateful we found this place!

The quaint ,little cabin on top of the mountain came equipped with everything we needed. Very airy and clean , I loved waking up to the cool breeze. So if you are active and like the outdoors this is the perfect place. Lastly ,our host was exceptional. Just a call away if we needed anything

The most incredible views! We loved hiking down the steep (a bit treacherous) trail to the gorgeous private river and swimming hole. I would not recommend the hike if you are scared of falling and hurting yourself. We also loved the local art.

The view is great! The hike down to the swimming hole is a must. 


awakened and serenaded by birds and insects chirping. Sunrise was the best part of the day. Absolutely beautiful!! I must mention the breathtaking view of the peaks and valleys below . The cool mountain air was refreshing and invigorating. There were plenty of activities to do, such as , museums, sacred indigenous ceremonial grounds, waterfalls, rivers and site seeing in Poncè. Plenty of areas to eat local cuisine.

Natural Pools Hike

If you want an escape from the city with some off road/ river adventure this is it, the place is so clean and sealed ( so no bugs or spiders inside the house).

Bird watching 

Birdwatching on the Island promotes economically productive, environmentally friendly and socially responsible tourism. More than 300 species of birds on the Island can be seen on expeditions through our nature reserves. Furthermore, of that amount, at least 17 are endemic species. 
Some Examples:


Puerto Rican tody (Todus mexicanus)

The Mountain House  scenic views are spectacular. The location is unbeatable, private, out of the main road and you are within the cloud forest of Puerto Rico. From the covered porch and back patio, enjoy watching endemic birds like Puerto Rican Tody, PR Woodpecker, PR Tanager, PR Spindalis, PR Oriole, PR Bullfinch, and Green Mango. During the cool nights, we enjoyed Puerto Rican Owls duetting, coquis calling, and chirping insects.
