Where to go near San Juan
Where to go near San Juan
Puerto Rico has two major karst regions, northern and southern.  The northern
karst (North Belt) is located in a subtropical moist forest life zone.  Due to its
topography the karst region the Island.  Whether you are staying in San Juan,
Dorado or the northwestern coast, the North Belt Corridor is an option when
looking for specific birds, such as the flamingo, tropic birds, and yellow-brested
crake; and, of course, endemic species.

This is one of several places where our Iguaca, the PR Amazon, a critically
endangered species can be found.  The Iguaca reproduce from January
through June.  The North Belt Region, at the heartland of our countryside, is one
place where you can find other endemics, such as the Tody, Tanager, Bullfinch,
Lizard Cuckoo, Green Mango, plus  Antillean and Caribbean specialties
(Antillean Euphonia).

This is an excellent alternative for
slow mobility participants.
