Flight to Caribbean #3. Cruises arrival in Puerto Rico. [00:40]
Puerto Rico (/ˌpɔrtə ˈriːkoʊ/ or /ˌpwɛərtə ˈriːkoʊ/),[note 1] officially the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico (Spanish: Estado Libre Asociado de Puerto Rico, [esˈtaðo ˈlibɾe asoˈsjaðo ðe ˈpweɾto ˈriko]—literally, "Associated Free State of Puerto Rico"), is an unincorporated territory of the United States, located in the northeastern Caribbean, east of the Dominican Republic and west of both the United States Virgin Islands and the British Virgin Islands. Puerto Rico (Spanish for "rich port") comprises an archipelago that includes the main island of Puerto Rico and a number of smaller islands, the largest of which are Vieques, Culebra, and Mona. The main island of Puerto Rico is the smallest by land area of the Greater Antilles. However, it ranks third in population amongst that group of four islands, which also include Cuba, Hispaniola (Dominican Republic and Haiti), and Jamaica. Due to its location, Puerto Rico enjoys a tropical climate and also experiences the Atlantic hurricane season. Originally populated for centuries by indigenous aboriginal peoples known as Taínos, the island was claimed by Christopher Columbus for Spain during his second voyage to the Americas on November 19, 1493.

Christmas Day 2011 in San Juan, Puerto Rico (video) [12:20]
During the MV Explorer's Amazon Enrichment Voyage, it spent a day and a half (and a night) in San Juan, Puerto Rico. (I used a brand-new water- and shock-proof camera for the daylight scenes in this video, just to test it. Since it had a number of sound problems and also "froze" repeatedly, I've since returned it to the dealer. For most of our other videos during the voyage we used our "old" Canon cameras.)
