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.
