Puerto Rico [01:58]
This is my first foray into using iMovie, which is slightly frustrating but also kind of fun. Strangely the evil point & shoot takes better movies than photos. All the surfing footage is from Maria's. The stuff of Carlos is from the evening of the first day we were there. He's riding a 60's Hansen 50/50 with the pintail shaved to make it round, and a finbox added, with some sort of crazy flex fin in it. Anything I have of him riding big waves outside of the two pics I took of him @ Tres on this camera were on my Holga I think...still waiting for that film to come back. The battery on this camera tended to die within 45 minutes so I didn't get much of him riding. Next time I'm taking my 60D. But this is what it was like. Waves and warm and Desecheo Island on the horizon, palm trees and turtles and coquis, waking up at 5:45 every day to surf.

Yokahu Tower in El Yunque National Forest, Puerto Rico's Rain Forest [01:01]
Yokahu Tower is one of the best stops to make in El Yunque National Forest. As long as the horizon is clear, you can see all the way to the Atlantic Ocean and over towards Fajardo, Puerto Rico. The Tower is not extremely tall, buy it will get you above the tree line and thus offer up some great pictures. Yokahu Tower is also a popular spot because it does not require a hike like Mt Britton's Tower. This tower is located just feet from the parking lot.

Vieques from Casa Griffen [02:58]
Taken from the balcony of our rental house in Vieques on the last morning of our trip. If it wasn't so overcast there would be a better view of St. Thomas, Culebra and the main island of Puerto Rico on the horizon.

La Bestia (The Beast), Toro Verde - Orocovis, Puerto Rico [00:57]
La Bestia (The Beast): At 4745 feet, it is almost a mile long (one of the longest zip lines in the world) and it is really, really high off the ground (853 feet)! This zip line takes about 2 minutes from end to end, and you are going pretty fast during parts of it — with the wind whipping across your face (hang onto your hats and sunglasses). You have time to really enjoy the scenery. It was really fun, and over way too fast — I could have done that again and again.

Toro Verde Nature Adventure Park offers one of the most extensive system of Zip line Tours in Puerto Rico.
