Overview

The island of Puerto Rico was magnificent. From the blue, early 19th century Spanish cobblestones lining the streets of Old San Juan, to the chirping of the Coquis (tiny tree frogs) in El Yunque (the rainforest) the island of Puerto Rico will win your heart! On my journey I hiked through the rainforest, ferried over to Culebra, a sophisticated island hoppers paradise, walked through the historical streets of Old San Juan, and soaked up the sun on the desolate, picture perfect beaches! If you are interested about learning more about this island don't hesitate to email me through this site. Let me be your free Puerto Rico travel resource.

    Hi! The actual name of the cobblestone bricks is "adoquines". It is said that they copy the color of the sky throughout the day, which remains on the 'adoquines' for whole day!
