Designated by UNESCO as a World Biosphere Reserve, Bosque Estatal de Guanica is a popular destination for nature seeking tourist and those looking for the most pristine beaches on the island.

As a nature reserve, not much of the area is built up. As such, the activities tend to revolve around the beautiful beaches, hiking trips, and other nature sightseeing. Most trails will take you through the dry forest, a centerpiece of the park, and all are great for birdwatchers and those looking for some pristine punctures of Puerto Rico's natural side.


Located on the island of Puerto Rico, 4.8 miles south of Yauco, Bosque Estatal De Guánica happily welcomes local customers and vacationers rooming on this part of the island. Regardless of whether or not you're staying particularly close, you should think about stopping by to enjoy a great time. It is 2.2 miles east of Guánica.
