Puerto Rico: A Natural Paradise

If you are looking for a tropical getaway with natural beauty beyond your wildest dreams, fresh food that will send your taste buds soaring, and locals that are so kind that they would give you the shirts off their backs, look no further than Puerto Rico. This small island is bursting with life from nature as well as from the lively community of people who inhabit it. If you are looking to practice your Spanish with people who will welcome you with open arms and actually allow you to practice without judging you, Puerto Rico may be one of your only options. Although this island is technically a United States territory, it has its own unique energy and lifestyle that is very different from what you tend to see in the US. I cannot recommend this island enough or talk highly enough about the lovely people that I met while I went there. If you go to Puerto Rico, these are some the sights that you won’t want to miss.
