Natural Attractions in San German

Although San German is an important town with regards to history, it remains vastly underdeveloped when you consider other major centers of tourism on the island.  This is good news for those who enjoy towns to remain true to their heritage, and several parks allow for green space that might be trounced upon in any other busy area.  If city parks aren't quite enough, travel a few miles outside of town for a zoo and a protected forest.
