Ecotourism, ecological house in the central region of Ciales, Puerto Rico (Quinta Montañar). [01:11]
This peaceful rustic, secluded mountain cottage located in the central region of Ciales, Puerto Rico, offers its guests the perfect place to disconnect themselves from the modern, hectic world. Its location in the middle of 145 acres of tropical forest (latitude 18o, 15', 26'', longitude 66o, 31',51'') is a pristine site bordered by Cialitos River. At an elevation ranging from 1500 to 2300 feet, it offers a peaceful and quiet setting with a unique view of Central Mountain range. You will be surrounded by ecology, nature, fresh air, clear sky, silence, and tranquility. Several kilometers of zigzagging trails through the dense tropical forest makes this Quinta Montañar a unique place to get in touch with Mother Nature. The forest is full of prana, crystalline creeks, and waterfalls. You will always be accompanied by the most amaizing inhabitants such as birds (guaraguaos, san pedritos, zorzales...), frogs (coquis, ranitas de labio blanco), lizards (lagartijos), and fireflies (cucubanos) that illuminate the night. To preserve its rustic and ecological atmosphere, the house does not have electricity. However, illumination of the house is provided by candles and lanterns. The house has a gas stove, gas fridge, running water, and a cozy decoration. It's the perfect place to get away from the madding crowd and commotion of the city (lejos del mundanal ruido).

Castillo San Felipe del Morro [01:54]
Lies on the northwestern-most point of the islet of San Juan, Puerto Rico. Named in honor of King Philip II of Spain, the fortification, also referred to as el Morro or promontory, was designed to guard the entrance to the San Juan Bay, and defend the city of Old San Juan from seaborne enemies. In 1983, during the Reagan Administration, the castillo was declared a World Heritage Site by the United Nations in conjunction with the San Juan National Historic Site. Over two (2) million visitors a year explore the windswept ramparts and passageways making the castillo one of Puerto Rico's main visitor attractions. Facing the structure, on the opposite side of the bay, a smaller fortification known as El Cañuelo complemented the castillo's defense of the entrance to the bay. cut from and pasted here from wikipedia

Visiting Puerto Rico (Waterfalls, Caverns, Ziplining, Snorkeling) [08:13]
My awesome first trip to Puerto Rico. Definitely a unique experience Ill remember for a lifetime. There were so many things I couldnt take videos of, like snorkeling underwater or visiting the Bio-Bay. I wish I would have took a video of us driving the back roads in Puerto Rico, where theyre only one car wide with hairpin turns. That in itself was an adventure. Playa Montones in Isabela was a gorgeous, remote, and practically vacant, beach. Beautiful reefs full of tropical fish surounded the area, making it possible to snorkel 20 feet from shore. The waterfalls I visited were along the Gozalandia River, or Casacada Gozalandia, near San Sebastian. Great off-the-beaten-path spot to visit. Only locals know about it. The waterfall is near 90 feet high, and some people cliff jump it. There is also a small underwater cave, which is fun to explore. The Caverns of the Camuy River, or Cuevas de Camuy, was a great place to explore. My phone isnt the greatest camera in the world, so the videos are dark. The Camuy River runs about 200 feet below the main cavern, Cueva Clara, carving it out. Great tourist location. We went snorkeling off the fishing village of La Parguera. Alot of reefs off the coast. The fish were huge and vibrantly colored. I even held a couple sea cucumbers and sea dollars. The tour guides were awesome, handing out beer for everyone, and offering us free chicken dinners. It was one big family atmosphere. The same tour guides took us to the Bioluminescent Bay that ...
