Puerto Rico is a small island compared to the natural treasures it holds. Central mountain chain reaching to an altitude of 1338m, at Cerro de Punta, and beaches are soft and golden sand, washed by warm turquoise waters. Although belonging to the United States, Puerto Rico has a culture and a different lifestyle. Many people have preserved the original style and the island is still Spanish territory with "fiestas" and "paella." The 4 million people seem to believe that fun is the only reason were born here.
Most of the island is burdened by poverty, but Puerto Rico is and what to praise - 418km of sandy beach, the three underground cave system in the world in size, the largest radio telescope in the world, non-stop signals space and the only rain forest in the U.S. forest system. There are a number of new protected reserves with unique plant species and island. Culture that combines multiple inheritance you can hear the infectious rhythms of the island and speeds up the nightlife. Latin rhythms fused with West African percussion, swing and jazz band music to create a perfect background music for this multicultural country.
