Favorite thing: We didn't see the Puerto Rican parrot which is an endemic and endangered species (only about 75 of them in the wild) but we did see a palm with blueberry-like fruit (photo 3) which they like to eat. Endemic BTW means that it is an animal or plant that grows or lives only in that one place.

Fondest memory: We did see some land snails. We didn't see any, but we heard the coqui (tree frogs) singing. Marian told us that there are no snakes, and very few mammals because it is an island.

Review Helpfulness: 3 out of 5 stars
