American Rain Forest

The blue-gray cobblestone streets of Old San Juanare scorching hot, searing the bottoms of sandals like skillets cooking bistec encebollado — steak and onions. Some 30 miles east, however, the ground is cool and damp. Here, thousands of trees form a verdurous parasol that...

San Sebastián Street Festival 2017 (01/19-01/22)

Paddling over underwater fireworks in Mosquito Bay

As I set out across Mosquito Bay on a moonless night, the water below my glass-bottom kayak twinkles brighter than the stars above. I skim across a sea of diamonds. Every stroke of my paddle stirs up an explosion of blue-white light. I am on Vieques, a small island an hour by...

YOU MUST TRY TOSTONES IN PUERTO RICO

When you think of Puerto Rico, your mind most likely goes straight to the gorgeous beaches with turquoise water and soft, white sand. While the beaches are certainly nothing to forget about, Puerto Rico has more to offer than just scenery. This island paradise also has some...

Culebra vs Vieques: Puerto Rico’s contrasting islands

Floating in a political no-man’s-land between US statehood and outright independence, Puerto Rico is an archipelago made up of four significant land masses, only three of which are inhabited: the heavily populated main island and its two eastern siblings, Vieques and Culebra....

Off the eaten track in San Juan

A foodie trip to Puerto Rico might evoke images of traditional island fare: red beans and white rice, lechón – a roasted suckling pig – or even the island’s ubiquitous signature dish mofongo, made with garlicky smashed green plantains stuffed with meat or vegetables. Do a little...
