El Yunque National Forest
After Hurricane Maria, El Yunque National Forest's 29,000 acres of land were left completely bare of any greenery. Many described the scene as if a fire had ravaged the rainforest. It was completely closed to the public for several months while it was being cleaned up and its roads cleared. A year and a half later, some points were still closed; however, these days, it's regrown and the perfect place to visit. Its fresh streams and waterfalls can combat any heatwave, and it's one of the most biologically diverse forests in the world.
