Right in the middle of Palmas del Mar is the Pterocarpus Forest, the pride of the community. An ongoing effort to rehab it after last year’s hurricanes is showing great results. Will take another year..

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.

Check out the tree house and bring snacks for the kids. The walk on the trail (elevated wood walkway, not dirt) is nice and relaxing.

Very nice small forest. Very comfortable above the surface trails, no mosquitos, quiet, and cool. It has parking lot for cars and carts. We are always surprised that such park has a place in Palmas del Mar.
