Virtual Puerto Rico Experience
Puerto Rico is a part of the US, but a country and culture all its own.
Walk the streets of Old San Juan, marveling at the bright colors, move to the salsa rhythms, and salivate as you hear about some delicious Puerto Rican dishes. Wander up to El Morro, an iconic fortification built by the Spanish, and gaze out at the beautiful Caribbean Sea. Learn how the different bloodlines that make-up Puerto Ricans – Spanish, African, and indigenous Taino – are felt and expressed in their culture through art, music, festivals, and more. Leave the city and head out to the beautiful forests and caves of the countryside. Take a kayak at night on the ethereal Bio Bay.
