Information about Puerto Rico:

Puerto Rico has beautiful beaches, tropical landscapes, and 500 years of Spanish cultural influence. Hiking trails and rest huts abound, and an observation tower offers sweeping views of the northeast corner of the Island. The result is a colorful, diverse and culturally unique island that is often as confusing as it is cosmopolitan.
