The musical instruments

The Puerto Ricans are well-known for their music and their musical instruments. They are happy vibrant people...They love the music and love to dance.

The bananas and the planteen

The Puerto Ricans eat bananas and planteens a lot. It is part of their diet. There are so many different classes of bananas in Puerto Rico. They boil them, smashed them and bake them! They dry them as candies and they mix them with their food!

The hats and the oranges

There are so many oranges in Puerto Rico. In fact, they are one of the major exporters of oranges in the United States! There were orange plantations in Indiera. Most of these "haciendas" are owned by wealthy Puerto Ricans...
