Hip Hip Hurray! We are off to visit Old San Juan today 🏰 Who wouldn’t be THIS happy?! 😜 Did you know: When Columbus discovered Puerto Rico (in 1493) he called the whole island San Juan. Puerto Rico was the name given to what is known today as the Old San Juan area. It was only later that the names were reversed (by some confused cartographer) and the whole island became known as Puerto Rico! 🇵🇷 .

Drove to the middle of the Island to visit the Arecibo Observatory. Although they aren't open till the 18th of January due to Hurricane damage, they were so gracious to stop what they were doing and give us a personal tour. Highly recommend!
Fun Facts!
1⃣ The Arecibo Observatory was featured in the movies Contact and Goldeneye (look familiar?!) 🎬
2⃣ In 1974 The Arecibo Message was sent out in an attempt to communicate with extraterrestrial life 👽
3⃣ The dish is 1,000 feet in diameter and consists of 40,000 aluminum panels
4⃣ Until 2016, it was the largest single aperture dish

Cuevas Ventana (window cave) has got to be the reason I originally fell in ❤ with Puerto Rico. Our 90 minute tour took us through the limestone caves where we learned all about the local bats (including the 3 foot Fisherman Bat), the stalagmites/stalactites and even the famous 6 foot Boa 😮 that thankfully wasn't present when we reached the window. The view was every bit as beautiful as I imagined ⛰
