Globe Trekker - Puerto Rico with Zay Harding [48:19]
Located at the heart of the Caribbean, Puerto Rico is around 100 miles long by 30 miles wide, with a population of some 4 million. Part of the US Commonwealth, it's known as the "island of enchantment", boasting sun-kissed beaches, dramatic mountains, a rich colonial history, and great music. Starting his journey in Puerto Rico's vibrant capital, San Juan, host Zay Harding looks around the beautifully preserved old city, dating back to the Spanish conquest in the 16th century. Sampling the local cuisine and the fabulous national drink, the piña colada, he salsas the night away before getting to meet the man who rolled the world's longest cigar. From San Juan, Zay heads east to El Yunque National Forest, one of the best preserved rainforests in the Caribbean. Home to over 240 species of trees, and a lot of rare wildlife, it's the last refuge of the endangered Puerto Rican Parrot. Checking out the breeding project that aims to save these beautiful birds, Zay is reassured that the future of the species is in good hands.

During WWII, the US military used the island as a weapons test site, and Zay discovers how the island's glorious beaches are now being decontaminated and opened to public access for the first time since the war.

Culebra Island - Puerto Rico [03:20]
Flamingo beach is said to the the #2 beach in the Caribbean so we had to see it. It's on the island of Culebra. From Puerto Rico, you take a fast ferry.

We did this tour through KayakingPuertoRico but you can do this on your own if you like. Culebra is small.

Morir/vivir leaf plant [01:00]
Our tour guide while on vaca in the Puerto Rican rainforest couldn't wait to show us this plant after our hike! When touched by a human, it closes and acts "dead". But when the rain hits it, nothing happens! The leaves open up again in 5 minutes after they think the human has gotten bored of waiting for it to open up again haha.

Camuy Caves, Puerto Rico 2011.avi [01:01]
A short look around from one end of the Cueva Clara (Clara Cave) in Puerto Rico's Cavernas del Río Camuy (Camuy River Cave Park). The falling specks are leaves; notice how they fall without the usual fluttering about. You can also see falling water and tree roots hanging down.
