Boqueron Natural Attractions

Refugio De Aves De Boqueron is one of the natural attractions you might enjoy. Translated as the Boqueron Bird Refuge, the main purpose of the site is to provide a safe haven for the many migratory and native birds that call the area home for at least a season. Bird watchers can take the opportunity to visit the refuge and try to see some rare birds.

Cabo Rojo National Wildlife Refuge is a second option worth a visit. An official national wildlife refuge of the United States, Cabo Rojo was established in 1974 as refuge for migratory birds and several tropical bird species that call the area home year-round.
