Itinerary

When you arrive in the city of San Juan, you’ll notice its colorful buildings and cobblestone streets. Take some time to browse local markets or relax as you prepare for your day tomorrow.

The first stop during your trip is in Old San Juan, an area of the city with 400 restored buildings from the island’s Spanish colonial period. It has a European charm and holds a great deal of history. You’ll receive a guided walking tour that will tell you about the history of the area.

For dinner, make sure to have some traditional Puerto Rican cuisine! Try some mofongo or frituras. In one bite, you’ll be hooked!

You’ll start your day with a little kick: a rum tasting tour at the local Bacardi factory, the largest premium rum distillery in the world! Our adult navigators will get to try six different rums, including one only available at Casa Bacardi!

Next, you’ll take a sailboat ride in the harbor at sunset. You can play some music and drink a little more alcohol if you like! It’s a calm, beautiful experience.

Start your day with a cup of Puerto Rican coffee. It’s legendary!

Once you’re awake, it’s time to head to school. You’ll be teaching English as a second language to children who are still learning. The kids will be grateful to talk to someone with a new accent, and you’ll be able to do something tangible to help those struck by the hurricane

Today, you’re going on a little day trip! Hop in the car and make your way to the El Yunque National Rainforest. It’s the only tropical forest in the U.S. National Forest System. You’ll go on a hike, but it’s up to you how long since there are 13 different trails. Just don’t exhaust yourself, because there’s one more stop.

You’ll head to Bioluminescent Mosquito Bay. Before it’s dark, it seems like a regular beach, but you’ll see what’s astonishing about this place once the sun sets. More than 700,000 bioluminescent dinoflagellates live in each gallon of this water in the bay, and at night, they give the water and sky a beautiful blue glow. It’ll really wow you.

Today, you’ll visit Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico. It includes Puerto Rican art from the 16th century to present and provides comprehensive nonprofit programs. You’ll receive a guided tour that will tell you about the artists whose work is displayed here.

The last stop on your trip is one you’ll be talking about for a long time. You’ll head to Balneario El Escambron to scuba dive! Even if you haven’t tried it before, your instructor will help you and make sure you’re 100 percent safe. You’ll get the chance to see tropical fish and sea turtles!

While your time in Puerto Rico has come to a close, you’ve made a lasting impact on the island. Maybe you can come here or to another place like this again and teach for a longer amount of time in the future.

Puerto Rico is an unincorporated territory of the United States, but when you step into it, it will definitely feel like a separate country. After Hurricane Maria ravaged the island, Puerto Ricans have needed help more than ever. On your trip to study education, you’ll learn about this territory and do your part to help make things better.
