Find the Fort in Puerto Rico

Sure, rain forests are exotic. But visit a dry forest and you can leave the umbrella behind. Puerto Rico's Guanica State Forest and Biosphere Reserve is classified as a subtropical dry forest. This bird watcher's haven, located in the southwestern portion of the island, features a wide range of plants and wildlife despite receiving scant rainfall (about 30 inches annually). The area is home to about half of the island's bird species and more than 700 types of plants.

Hike the Fuerte Trail from the main parking area to Fort Capron. The six-mile roundtrip hike follows a wide, well-maintained packed-dirt path with some hilly portions. These are desert-like conditions with little shade, so wear a hat and bring water and sunblock.
