Beautiful trees but limited access due to hurricane damage. Would recommend going once the docking is back up so you can walk through the wetlands.

Nothing compares to the unique experience of walking in this ancient forest. Worth the trip to Palmas Del Mar as there are great restaurants there, too.

Recently this areas has been reclaimed from the overgrowth that covered it. An excellent job has been done in building board walks over the swamp. Beside the many pterocarpus trees we saw turtles, herons, termite nests and egrets. Nice area to take a walk. In...More
