The park contains a boardwalk that stretches through a dense collection of mangroves. This vital ecosystem to Puerto Rico is home to a number of wildlife that cannot survive in other habits.

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.
