View Finder: Puerto Rico

It may be a US territory but Puerto Rico has its own separate identity and a tantalising mix of history, from the Spanish colonial houses of its capital San Juan to arts, crafts and music which could only belong to the Caribbean.  Famously providing the setting for Hunter S. Thompson’s alcohol-chronicle “The Rum Diary”, Puerto Rico also offers more than its fair share of nightlife and year-round festivities.  Away from the city, however, this tiny island boasts some of the most breathtaking scenery in the tropics, particularly in El Yunque rainforest which is a haven for countless species of flora and fauna.
