Reasons Why I Love Puerto Rico

Updated on May 6, 2016

Is The island of Enchament

This is the true name for this island. Once you visit Puerto Rico you will discover that what they say about it is true. From blue beaches to rain forest you can have it all in one place. Imagine spending your day fishing in a tropical weather with your family members and your friends. In this island everything is possible.

Food Is Amazing

The island has a lot to offer and as a food lover I like to try new things. Yes you can find all the american stuff in the island since Puerto Rico is considered a US colony, but the local food is really good. If you go there make sure you try the Pasteles, arroz con gandules and Lechon. You can combine that with "el chinchorreo" which is an activity that you can do with your friends and familty members, you will need to create a route and visit these littles establishments who offer all types of local food and drinks.

I Love Fishing

As I mentioned before there are a lot of activities you can perform in the island. You can spend the day at the mall, visit El Yunque, do some kayaking in a lagoon or you can go fishing. I spend last december in the island fishing with some family members and it was super dope. I met Captain Omar Orraca, he's very knowledgeable about fishing, every time I visit Puerto Rico I make sure I schedule a fishing trip with him for two days. The experience is amazing, Omar will share with you all his knowledge to get you a tarpon in the line and he will share all this amazing stories about fishing.
