A Gringo who moved to Puerto Rico, Greg loves writing about the island he now resides on. He and Maria also wrote several bilingual books...

We have been traveling all of Puerto Rico to give you a virtual tour of this wonderful island paradise.

On this hub, we are visiting the North-Western coastline.

Puerto Rico is know my home and I would highly suggest a visit or vacation here.

Be sure and read the other hubs in this series. There are pictures and videos.

Keep in mind that Puerto Rico is a United States territory. You don't need a passport to come here; all citizens of Puerto Rico are also United States citizens. There is a good chance this wonderful island will soon become the 51st State.

Well, join Maggie and her Frog on this trip. Enjoy!!!
