Guanica Dry Forest

We had to check out the dry forest at Guanica (Bosque Estatal de Guánica, also Bosque Seco) because it's the best of its kind in the Caribbean.

It’s a twisty skinny road to Bosque Seco (the dry forest), with sunken shoulders to make it exciting on the rare occasions there’s another car coming. We don’t have a Jeep like we did on Vieques!

A helpful man at the park information center helped us select a trail, to La Vigia (the view). It was a wide trail, smooth in some areas and some with golf ball to softball size rocks. It was also fairly level other than a steep descent to the overlook. We could have used hiking boots if we had them but we did fine in our Tevas without socks.
