Puerto Rico is a paradox - miles of quiet beaches drowsing in the sun contrast with towns and cities bustling with life. High above the coast rises the "Cordillera Central" - steep mountains that form a rugged spine across the island. Puerto Rico - the "Island of Enchantment" beckons to those who crave the feel of the trade winds, the sun and showers of the rainforest, and the beauty of afternoon clouds drifting across a tropical sky.
We've enjoyed some fine fishing in Puerto Rico, as well as the crazy mix of sights and sounds, the many colors and flavors of the island, and the good company we've met along the way.
Join us as we relive a few moments from this Enchanted Isle.
