  Arecibo Observatory
by CulturalCompetence

When Arnold was a child, he read about a massive observatory in the middle of the mountains of Puerto Rico. On our "shorty-moon," we took the opportunity to check it out! Arecibo Observatory is massive! It is only a 1-2 hour drive from San Juan (and all paved roads - which was a blessing!). It was easy to find and fun to visit! It only required a half-day to see nearly everything that was open to tourists. We literally flew into San Juan in the early afternoon, drove to Arecibo, and were at El Yunque by nightfall!
