Quite different from the North side of the island- gentle water and sea scapes
Nov 2020
Lovely- on one side tidelands and the other, ocean.. The road is closed some of the time so its a hike inside- and with the sun beating down on you, you need water and decent shoes. Some people brought bikes- a good idea. You go to the end to see the lighthouse and the birds and the slope of the land against the sea.

Beautiful, interesting walk around a lagoon

There is a welcoming center with lots of information about the refuge. The walk is peaceful, with lots of birds and unusual vegetation. Bring water and binoculars.

Great Nature Hike
Feb 2017 • Couples
This is the third time my wife and I visited the wildlife refuge on our trips to Puerto Rico. His time we walked the Lagoon Trail. We saw at least 13 types of birds and enjoyed the different plants in a dry forest. Bring water and bug spray. The walk is relatively easy ( 1.47 miles). It gets hot so wear a hat, proper shoes and enjoy the sights and sounds of Puerto Rican nature!

Relaxing, Excellent Environment & View
Jul 2016 • Solo
I spent this weekend at Parador Combate Beach Resort in Cabo Rojo. It is adjacent to the Wildlife Refuge. One afternoon, I took a walk through this birds' santuary to observe the sunset near Combate Beach. It was gorgeous and threre were many other people sitting on the beach looking at the sunset. The trails are well maintained and the areas quite identIfied. Threre were mountain-bikers in route too. Certainly, it is a must visit, when coming to the West Coast of Puerto Rico.

Best secluded beach
Mar 2016 • Family
Off the beaten path of the normal roads. Totally worth driving down dirt roads and walking to the beach. You are able to walk to the lighthouse and the other side of the cove on the rock outcrop to get the best views. Get there early and stake your clam to a spot under the trees if you want shade.

Visitor center and hiking!
Mar 2016 • Couples
The visitor center is well done, good visual displays, a terrific short wildlife movie featuring the profusion of bird life around there. The staff is friendly and helpful.
Quite near the center's parking are the trailheads you can use to get exercise and see many species up close. Understand that this is 'dry forest' and salt flat country, not wet or rain forest, and it can indeed be dry/hot so bring your water.
