Puerto Rico-”La Isla del Encanto”

March 13th, 2008

Puerto Rico is the Enchantment Island. Every day is a sunny day; you don’t have to wait for summer to enjoy the Caribbean weather because every day is Summer Time. But if you are lucky enough to catch a Rainy Day, remain silent for a minute and you will experience the most beautiful soundtrack of the different birds, cricket and of course the Coqui.

The Coqui (Eleutherodactylus as known by its zoological name) are unique frogs that live in Puerto Rico, with its timid ko-kee sound in the evening (from which it gets its name) completed the island enchantment. The best place to find the coquies is at the Rainforest El Yunque witch means “Forest of Clouds” this National Forest has mountains that dominates the 28,000 acre of tropical forest. It is the only tropical forest in the United States National Forest System. Not to mention that Puerto Rico has the most beautiful beaches especially Flamenco Beach, is so clear that you can see your reflection on the water not to mention that the sand is pure white. Also other places to visit are the Historic Old San Juan district, Arecibo Observatory in Arecibo, Guajataca State Forest and Lake in Isabela, Rio Camuy Caves in Camuy and Condado Beach in San Juan.

Perhaps, you think that this is a place that offers only a Natural Environment, you are mistaken Puerto Rico is more…There is no other place you can enjoy the beach like South Beach, Miami or gamble in the Casinos like in Las Vegas than Isla Verde. The best part is that if you are a citizen of United Stated you don’t need passport or the hassle to change the currency and you don’t have to be afraid that you don’t know Spanish because in Puerto Rico the second language is English.

On the other hand, before you put a foot to the island you probably will need to learn how to dance, because Puerto Rican or “Boricuas” have a Caliente blood they are a mixed race of white, Indian and black and they love to dance salsa, merengue and reguetón. Enjoy the video below you will hear some of the sound that I described above and the Puerto Rico Hymn guitar sound…
