Tour Option 5: Guanica Dry Forest


guanica-hikeThe Southwestern municipality of Guanica is home to one of Puerto Rico’s major Biosphere Reserves, designated as such by the United Nations. The 9,000 acre plus reserve, more commonly known as Bosque Seco, lies amidst Puerto Rico’s driest terrain, encompassing everything from nearby hills to the plains, all the way down to the coast at stunning Guanica bay. The type of forest that grows here is known as xerophytic, or just ‘dry forest’, where the scarce rainfall and dry climate yeild its’ singular beauty and diversity. Plant species alone number in the hundreds, almost 250 of which are spiny bushes and trees. Over 150 bird species have been counted in the reserve – doubling El Yunque’s number – as well as numerous reptiles and amphibians, like the native coquí.

Your tour will take you on a hike through various trails, including the four-mile long Fuerte trail that leads to Fort Caprón – a historic lookout point built by the Spanish – and amazing views of the bay. Impressive sights like a four-hundred year old Guayacán tree accent the trip.

    We are heading to SanJuan from late Dec to early Jan. It sounds like you have a lot of great activities, and we are especially interested in a rainforest/waterfall tour, some ziplining, and some caving. What do you offer within an hour of San Juan. The youngest in our group is 13, in case that matters for any of the activities.
    Thanks so much!
