Condado is not especially known for its natural attractions.  If the nearby beaches and city parks just aren't doing the trick, however, it's convenient location means you aren't far from larger attraction that mean exploring the great outdoors, such as the Bosque State Park which is just a few miles away.  One site you won't want to overlook is the Laguna del Condado which is not only beautiful, but home to three different types of endangered birds.
