What kind of excursion are you talking about? A trek in with camping (which is possible in El Yunque in PR) or just a day trip via bus with guided walking tour (not extensive, but pretty nice). I just did one of those on an afternoon off from a week-long business meeting and it hit the spot. That was in Puerto Rico. You have to remember, it is a rain forest and may possibly be RAINING although the weather elsewhere is sunny. I was pretty impressed with El Yunque, and would recommend it. However if you really want in-depth rain forest, you might prefer Costa Rica.

One more note -- it was purely for vegetation -- the native parrots were sadly blown away with the last hurricane. We saw a few hummingbirds, and the sounds came mostly from the coqui frogs. My only comparison is with a trip up a volcano in Guadaloupe 20 years ago, and I don't think that was a true rain forest, just jungle.
