From the beach to the jungle. A solid day in topography AND ecosystems, if I don't say so myself. Science!
Mayyybe one of my favorite photos from Puerto Rico. Noticed this guy hanging out when I was trying to get some arty texture shot of moss and other freeloading vegetation. This? Way cooler.
Just a few jungle notes:
1. The "highway" does not, I repeat, does not run all the way through the jungle as most maps would indicate.
2. Definitely, definitely hike.
3. I am happy to report that there were zero snake sightings on this trip.
Once out of the jungle we made our way back to San Juan for a cold glass of Ron del Barrilito on the rocks (Rum on the rocks? Yes, folks, it's that delicious) and the best ceviche of my life at a Peruvian joint called Lima. Restaurant recommended by Jennifer Bilec and now me.

Annnyway, we had one more half day in sunny Puerto Rico before boarding our flight back to New York. For the most part, I put the camera away and just enjoyed the sun and the surf. If I'm not mistaken, a few more excellent life decisions were made on that beach as well, but more on that adventure to come...
