Get beyond Old San Juan, Puerto Rico

I wonder how many people who visit Puerto Rico get much beyond visiting San Juan.

There is so much to see, some of it quite unique.

For instance, there is El Yunque National Forest which is the only tropical rainforest in the United States.

There is The Aricebo Observatory.

And if you are into beach and water and looking for something even more exotic, head over to the island of Vieques, just off the east coast. Check out Bahia Mosquito (Mosquito Bay). After the sun sets, you can see a stunning display of bioluminescense in the shallow waters. Try to check it out on a moonlight night and be sure to take a dip.
