Thanks to all for weighing in on the question of whether El Yunque is the only tropical rain forest. We at GORP appreciate it, and we also wanted to let you know that our content came from the USDA Forest Service site on El Yunque, which reads: "As a "Borinqueño" (a native son of Puerto Rico) I encourage you to visit us and take full advantage of El Yunque's many exciting features -- our island's premier eco-tourism location is the only tropical rain forest in the U.S. National Forest system!"

We don't profile products we don't believe in, and if there's something odd about the stuff we write about, we'll write about that as well. The goal is to help our readers find the very best products out there, and our choices have nothing to do with advertisements on the site.

The only public transport to/from Venice and the Dolomite region is via public bus, which typically runs twice daily. Or you can hire a taxis--expect to pay around $150 US, maybe less. Taking a bus is something of a pain because you have to sync your international arrival with the bus schedule--or plan some time overnight in Venice (which is never a bad idea). BTW - we have a great Q&A section the site itself. Check it out:
