FTV 2/14/11

Our last day in port is here and although we will miss the warm weather, we are anxious for home and family. Just like the previous two ports, excursions are available for cadets in San Juan. Horseback riding on the beach and sailing adventures are only two of the exciting activities that we have enjoyed during our stay in Puerto Rico. The excursions are exciting and are sure to be a great time, and the cadets are free to go off and experience the island's many site seeing opportunities.

There is so much to do and see in Puerto Rico. Sailing, jet skiing, snorkeling, fishing, scuba diving and surfing have been some of the activities. Surfing is very popular and Puerto Rico is sometimes called "the Hawaii of the Atlantic." There are over 70 surfing spots with waves anywhere from 3 feet to 20 feet. It doesn't matter what experience level surfer you are, there is a beach for you and all are properly labeled for beginner, intermediate, and advanced surfers.

There are also biking and hiking paths with beautiful scenery, boating, kayaking, windsurfing and kite surfing if you want to try something new. There are breathtaking rainforests that people can walk through to view the numerous animals and plants.

There are many shopping centers as well to get anything from clothes to souvenirs. Our last day in port is sure to be exciting as we experience all we can before we head back home.
