Puerto Rico: I Love Your Face
The smallest of the four islands constituting the Greater Antilles, about the size of Connecticut, Puerto Rico is often referred to by its residents as a continent, because of its great geographical and cultural diversity. For example, there are 272 miles of fine beaches – some near luxury hotels and casinos and others dispersed between mountains, rugged caves and cliffs. A short drive from the coast brings you onto serpentine and precipitous roads that wend their way up mountains over 4,000 feet in altitude. Magnificent vistas pop into view as you drive upwards from beach to desert to coconut palms and all kinds of tropical fruited plants that are crowded into jungles and rain forests.
