your pictures are truly beautiful..you've seen more of puerto rico then some of us who actually live here...wow .what camera did you use??
15th March 2007

That might be true, but then again most people living in Puerto Rico who get two weeks off dont want to spend it driving around the entire island! Its the same here for me in California, there are many spectacular places I havnt seen just 3 hours drive away... I used a Nikon 5700 for this trip. I really liked that camera, buit recently upgraded to a Nikon D80. thanks for the compliments!!

puerto rico
Amazing photographic safari. I came across your site looking for puertoricans in california. I was there at the same time you were and was able to see most of the sites you photographed. I'm going back the 17th and I shall take my husband to the Camuy caves which I've never seen.

Wrong Answer!
[url=http://invasions.bio.utk.edu/invaders/coqui.html]http://invasions.bio.utk.edu/invaders/coqui.html[/url] Im sorry Edward but you are mistaken. Every source I have ever read says Coqui's are frogs of the family of Eleutherodactylus: [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eleutherodactylus]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eleutherodactylus[/url]

A couple corrections...
Puerto Rico is not a different country. Also, the people there are not any more friendly than your typical American. It's just a myth.
5th August 2008

Another correction...
Puerto Rico is not the most densely populated island on the planet. Probably not even in the top 10. Not even half of what is found in Java... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puerto_Rico http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Java Anyhow, awesome pics. Ain't life grand!

Historically, linguistically, socially, anthropologically- Puerto Rico is another "country", even though legally and politically it is a "self-governing unincorporated territory of the United States". And I didn't say Puertorriqueños are more friendly, just that they are unique in combining all the aspects of their personalities. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puerto_Rican_independence_movement Furthermore Mr. "me", talking about "Americans" during a discussion of Latin America is a bit of a misnomer. Everyone in North, South and Latin America is an American in every sense of the word. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Americas Finally I totally agree with your comment about population density! Sometimes travel writing gets a bit caught up in the "biggest, largest, longest, oldest, deepest" superlative race! I should always default to the term to make it sound high, like "one of the..." Thanks to everyone for the compliments!! This is my most viewed blog and I definitely feel priveledged to have shared the things I saw in puerto Rico with so many thousands of people!

Greatful of your photos
Thank you for showing such fantastic pictures of our beloved Island "Puerto Rico", I am helping a friend with a web page and would like your permission to link you to that page. Her page is about promoting the typical Puerto Rican foods she cooks in the Baltimore area. Please let me know, I will proceed with the design but hold from publication until I hear from you. Thanks again for displaying our culture so elegantly

Coffee Farm

We should have never stopped
what a gorgeous picture. To think that my little Island could be standing on her own right now if we would have taught our children to till the land and use our resources. How different things would be today. Amazing that these farms still exist. Someone should put together a tour of still existing coffee farms and sugar cane farms (if they still exist). That would be awesome. Gorgeous Picture!

Camuy Caves

We are traveling to camuy And was wondering how the crime rate might be if there's any. We are traveling with little ones and didn't know if the caves were a safe venture for them. Do you have any info on camuy? And would you choose it for a place to purchase a home? Thanks Donna
