Spending much of his time in the land of sizzling salsa music and Spanish ruins, lush tropical rainforest and aquamarine waters, Harry Pariser gives you detailed information on little-known towns, parks, reserves and offshore islands. His ecologically-aware perspective provides a refreshing look at archaeological sites, preserves and rugged rainforest environments. Old San Juan, El Yunque and the Caribbean National Forest, Palmas del Mar, Ponce, Gu�nica, Mayagnez, Mona Island, Vieques, Arecibo, Camuy, Barranquitas and San Germ�n are but a few of the chapters in this book. Each region is covered extensively, with details on where to stay and eat, sailing, chartering and deep-sea adventures, snorkeling and diving, and the best birdwatching and hiking spots. Practical travel tips abound, and the introductory sections on the island's culture, history, geography, religion and customs will stand you in good stead for your next trip. Color photos and maps round out the picture.
