Humacao Attractions

Humacao is unique in the way that it caters to tourists from all walks of life.  Not only is this town home to Palmas del Mar, one of the most luxurious resort communities on the island, but it also features an important wildlife refuge and one of its two small islands is inhabited by islands that once took part in scientific experiments.  Visitors can choose which path they'd like to take and which attraction they'd like to see, then meet up at night in one of the casinos – which seems to be one thing that no matter what their style, tourists can't seem to resist. 


Humacao Beach

You will discover an abundance of beaches to enjoy in and around the area. You can click on the beach names to get additional information about that individual beach.

Humacao Beach: Backed by coconut palms and a small fresh water pool, Humacao has soft tan sand and green waters.

Another place for beach-goers to consider is Morillo Beach. Calle Dr. Vidal runs alongside the beach, where you can exit onto a dirt road that will take you to the sand.

Playa Punta Santiago: Playa Punta Santiago is located in Humacao on the main island of Puerto Rico. It is a government run beach that in its hay day was a beauty.

Natural Attractions

Humacao Wildlife Refuge

Tourists who enjoy the natural environment will probably have a pleasant time visiting Humacao Wildlife Refuge. Recently refurbished and renamed, the Humanco Wildlife Refuge is popular amongst birders.

El Yunque National Forest is another local attraction that provides a nice way to spend some time outdoors. As the only tropical rain forest in the United States, El Yunque is a prized possession in Puerto Rico. Explore its nearly 28,000 acres of dense forests and rough mountain landscape through their hiking trails, lookout towers, or driving through its main road and simply looking around.

Luckily, you can find other choices. To read our detailed page about natural attractions in and around the area, read this page.
