In truth, Isla Verde is a busy city with little to recommend it for eco-tourists. While there is easy access to coastal lands and parks, the best option for those who want to stay in the Isla Verde area is to plan to make some trips outside of the city.
Do you hope to enjoy more of your vacation outside? You may be happy to learn the area has a nice nature preserve nearby.
Bosque Estatal De Piñones is a nature preserve situated in Pinones, 3.9 mi. East of central Isla Verde. The six-mile boardwalk through the mangroves is a perfect chance to get outdoors and experience some of the more natural features of Puerto Rico. While you will be in some of the most natural and muddy spots on the island, the boardwalk luckily will keep you clean and your feet dry.

Although most travelers come for the beautiful coastline, that isn't the only way to enjoy the area's natural wonders. The one example is La Coca Falls. It is located 14.1 mi. Southeast of central Isla Verde. This tremendous waterfall is one of the many wonders located in El Yunque National Park, though luckily, is not too far into the forest. Offering breathtaking views, this waterfall also allows visitors to climb up close to it and really feel the thundering force.
