Attractions, Sightseeing & History

Puerto Rico might be a relatively small island, but there are countless natural attractions in every part of the island worth to visit. There are so many interesting locations, that even most locals haven’t seen them all. 

Beside some of the main attractions like El Yunque Rain Forest or Culebra Island, there are many other locations worth to visit and explore. 

If you like to visit historic sites and learn more about the culture of a country, you will find Puerto Rico filled with locations and information from the original indian population many thousand years ago, to the spanish invaders and the very unique mix of Indian, African and Spanish influence in music, art and people.

Two of the main attractions are doubtless Old San Juan and El Morro, the fortress built to protect the old city. But the historic locations you can explore around the island include those of the rightful locals of the island – the Taino Natives and they left behind quite some interesting sites. One of them is Cueva del Indio, a cave located insite the rocks right at the shore of Arecibo with authentic native Taino carvings, probably thousands of years old and many other locations we will present here.
