On one of Grandma Deb’s cruises, she had the chance to explore Puerto Rico. She brought Tim and I some fabulous rum cake that made us want to jump on a plane just to get more. Visiting Puerto Rico is like visiting a foreign country but without the hassle of going to a foreign country. You won’t need a passport or foreign money but you’ll get to experience things that Americans commonly view as foreign.
The only rainforest under the US national park service is located in Puerto Rico. Horse back riding, miles of coastline, the Bioluminescent bay, lots of caverns for exploring and glorious food are just a few of the top reasons to visit Puerto Rico.

If we ever found ourselves headed to Puerto Rico, I’d be sure to coincide our trip with Saborea, a huge festival celebrating the local food. You’ll get to see cooking demonstrations by culinary personalities and taste food from the islands finest restaurants. There can’t be a better way to learn about a culture! I think the lechón, charcoal spit-roasted pig, because it sounds so much like one of my favorite Hawaiian dishes, kalua pork.
