Explore the beauty of Puerto Rico with the Globe Trekkers.

Zay discovers the cultural highs and breath-taking beauty of this former Spanish colony where he discovers why it’s known as the “island of enchantment,” boasting sun-kissed beaches, dramatic mountains, a rich colonial history, and great music. From San Juan, the vibrant capital, to the El Yunque National Forest, the Camuy River Caves National Park and the coffee-producing central highlands, this is a fascinating insight into one of the jewels of the Caribbean and all of its rich and varied culture. Globe Trekker: Puerto Rico airs Thursday, February 9 at 9 p.m. on WXXI Create (DT21.3/cable 433).
