Vacation Time-Puerto Rico!

This week, we are going to PUERTO RICO!!! YAY *applause applause*  OK, seriously now, Puerto Rico is such a beautiful island I just had to post about it.  So pack up your suitcase and get ready to fly!
 Before you  board the plane, here is a little background information on the country,
The flag:

The Capital of Puerto Rico is San Jaun.
The official languages spoken in Puerto Rico are Spanish and English.
The national flower is the Puerto Rican hibiscus.

And the national bird is the Reina Mora.

You are now on the plane, you look out the window and see,
     Waterfalls,
via

     Beaches,
via
    Mountains,
via
     And a  river.

When you land, it is time for bed, but you take one last peek out the window before going to bed.  Your eyes are met with the enchanting sight of a Puerto Rican sunset

And when you wake up in the morning you see a beautiful sun rise over a mountain top.

After sitting on your hotel veranda watching the sun rise for hours your stomach loudly reminds you that the last thing you ate was the meager snack on the plane that consisted of a bag of peanuts and apple juice.  You hop onto a bus a follow your hungry heart to one of the most unique restaurants in Puerto Rico. . .

     How cool is that?!
You finished eating a decide that it is time for a hike.  Hiking up the side of the mountain you find these cool ruins

Weaving themselves in and out of the ruins you see an abundance of wildlife.  The fragrance of hibiscus fills your nostrils as you try to photograph these tricky animals.

When you finish your hike, you walk down to the beach and get suited up for some scuba diving!
via
This cute sea turtle curiously swims around you wondering what you are doing in his home.
via
Dolphins!!!! Need I say more? lol ;)

Once your scuba diving trip is done, you head back to your hotel and finish the day off with a snack of a pineapple, coconut, strawberry, mango fruit salad and a nice long nap.

Hope you guys enjoyed your little 5 minute trip to Puerto Rico!  Next week we are going to travel up north to the freezing yet beautiful land of Alaska. =)
P.S. I will post the next part of the story with no title tomorrow.
