The group arrived in the capital city of San Juan, on April 12 and began their Puerto Rican adventure.

The students took a walking tour that included historical places such as La Casa Blanca, La Muralla (the city wall) and La Fortaleza.

Over the next days, the group toured more of San Juan and experienced a zipline canopy tour, visited ElYunque Caribbean National Forest, Luquillo Beach and a Bioluminescent Bay excursion.

They also snorkeled, sailed on a catamaran and visited an uninhabited island to enjoy the beauty and splendor above and below the sea.

They also explored the underworld Camuy Caves and then visited possibly the prettiest city in Puerto Rico, Ponce.

They traveled to the Tibes Ceremonial Park where they learned about the ancient civilizations built there that date back to about the third century before returning to the states.
