We stayed in the forest near the sea and loved the cactus and variety of vegetation that survives there. So close to the tropics to see such a change in scenery.

Entering the dry forest you arrive at this spectacular beach that is a paradise. They call it The Jungle. You will spend a beautiful day. You must take everything as drinks and food since there is no business at the natural reserve.

We took Route 333 a few kilometers until we saw a closed gate in front of us as the road curved to the left -- around the curve you'll see gravel parking on the left (enough for 3-4 cars). We parked there and walked up...More

We read many reviews and some blogs about the dry forest hikes before going, and so many rang true when we embarked. We ended up completing an eight-mile section starting at a gravel pull-off around km marker 3.1 on route 333. It did not appear...More

Guanica as a city and the surrounding area including the dry forest is a lovely place to visit by car and also hike. There are nice beaches in the area and great places to eat pork as you drive through the side roads.
