Where is the Bosque de Pomac Historic Sanctuary located?

Its good state of conservation has helped generate sustainable development opportunities for the benefit of its citizens through activities such as ecotourism and the production of products derived from the forest, benefiting 150 local residents.
In the Pomac Historic Sanctuary, visitors have the opportunity to enjoy a variety of activities such as flora and fauna observation, trekking, biking, camping, horseback riding, handicrafts, and forest products, among others.
