Relax in the hammock with an ice-cold beer and a good book or roll out of bed and learn about Puerto Rice’s history. Historic Hormigueros is only 15 minutes away (an ancient San German city dating to 1511), or drive 25-minutes out to Boye, a quaint fishing village with the nearest beach.

With a spiral staircase, floor-to-ceiling windows, and lanterns lighting the trunk, the treehouse looks like something out of a Disney princess movie.

Curl up with a cup of coffee and watch the sunrise from the second-story patio, then schedule an afternoon nap on the hammock and wake up to the sounds of the jungle.

One thing to note is that there is no glass on the windows. It’s completely open to the elements. For families or groups of friends who love feeling connected to nature, it doesn’t get better than a night or two at the Royal Palm. But if you’re sensitive to bugs, you’ll probably want to look elsewhere.
