When I saw the movie “Pandora”, I felt it could have been filmed at El Yunque. Through the ethereal atmosphere of the forest, a portal to another dimension is hidden behind the passing clouds. Its spectacular views encompass the blue waters of the northern coastline and the easternmost tip of Puerto Rico. There is a veil of mystery that characterizes the prominent mountain, holding hidden secrets.
Officially known as the Caribbean National Rainforest, the 28,000 acres woodland was originally named by the Indian Taínos after the benevolent spirit of their god Yuquiyu, meaning in their language, forest of clouds. During the time Spain was ruling the island, the colonizers confused the name with El Yunque. In 1905, after the Spaniards had granted Puerto Rico to the United States, the oldest reserve in the occidental hemisphere became the only national rainforest in US territory.
Located in the Sierra of Luquillo, El Yunque has been a focal point of UFO and paranormal sighting since the Taínos were the first inhabitants of Borikén, believing them that the forest was a sacred mountain because its highest peak was the dwelling place of their deities. UFO researchers claim that our indigenous communicated with extraterrestrials, teaching them these “ancient astronauts”, known as aliens, the physical and spiritual laws of the universe. The Taínos believed that one of their space crafts may have crashed in the rainforest during the earlier times and that the aliens were gods. Much later the ship disappeared, but the energy merged with the aura of the forest.
When Christopher Columbus discovered the island, he wrote in his journal that during his journeys, he saw strange lights coming from the mountain of what is known today as El Yunque. A mystical forest is an excellent place for paranormal activities to take place because of its place on the south side from the Bermuda Triangle. Strange Mayan figurines were mysteriously found in Puerto Rico. Just like the Mayan Indians, ufology analysts believe extraterrestrials are attracted to the energy that is found in the forest.
Known as one of the most visited places by UFOs in the world, serious investigations of this strange phenomenon are happening in Puerto Rico. Even though the mystery of the rainforest remains strictly secretive to the government; there is a theory that a subterranean extraterrestrial base exists inside the forest. Some scientists and researchers speculate that El Yunque is a UFO geomagnetic radiation base. Geomagnetic is known as the energy produced by a magnetic field that provides vital protection for keeping the earth atmosphere in the place.
Throughout the years, many people have seen strange lights hovering over the rainforest, and there have been several cases reported of people having encounters with reptile beings, humanoids figures and bizarre creatures inside El Yunque. Part of road 191, allowing the entrance to the forest is prohibited to the public and at night, witnesses have reported strange military activity. The forest is closed every day at 6:00 PM and there is a threat of shooting if trespassing takes place.
The mysterious forest serves as the home of thousands of endangered species of the island’s fauna and floral. While gleaming leaves surround you, shadowy trails sheltered by gigantic trees and the dim light of the sun rays, sparkling stones and wild vegetation; its beautiful and breathtaking scenery are accompanied by the melodious sound of the coquí, the puertorrican tree frog. However, many people are afraid of visiting the forest. What is the military personnel hiding inside the rainforest and what is about El Yunque that interests UFOs?
Over the years, many alien spaceships sightings have been reported, but the latest case that created controversy was in February of 1988 when a group of locals heard a loud sound. They all saw the crash and explosion of a UFO. The next morning, a television station showed up to videotape the incident; getting the military involved right away and announcing the television news right before airing it that their shooting had mysteriously disappeared.
During the various times, I have visited El Yunque, I haven’t witnessed any paranormal activity yet. However, I know some locals that have seen UFOs flying over the mountain. There is much controversy about the activity that takes place there. Strange balls of light coming from the mountain have been seen, many people have mysteriously disappeared and were never found, a military secret place is hidden inside the forest, sightings of the chupacabra and grey aliens have been reported, as well as numerous cases of abductions of extraterrestrials. It seems our government have been secretly collaborating with them for several years. Why are they keeping this from the public and when will they disclose the true about these beings? Who are they and why are they there?
