With all of the negative press about Puerto Rico lately, it’s easy to forget that this is called “Isla Del Encanto” (translated as The Enchanted Island) and for good reason as it’s absolutely beautiful!
Despite the out of control hype about the $73 Billion debt crisis and the Zika scare, this is an absolutely gorgeous place to be. So, we thought we’d do something a bit different today just to remind you that Puerto Rico (and Luquillo in particular) is a beautiful place to live..
The Enchanted Island: Virtual Beach Tour
Last week, Joanna’s oldest son visited us from the mainland and he brought his DJI Phantom 3 Standard Quadcopter Drone with him.
During the week he was here, he captured a lot of video as he flew over the playa (beach); so, I compiled it into a 2 minute and 39 second “virtual beach break” for you to enjoy. The recording was made on May 12th (one of many nice days we have here). To help you relax as you watch it, I included some nice beach sounds for the soundtrack.
So, grab something cold to drink, turn up your sound, kick off your shoes, and take a couple of minutes to de-stress while you enjoy our video (viewing it in full-screen would be best).
If you know other people who could use a “virtual beach break” on the Enchanted Island of Puerto Rico, feel free to forward this video to them and/or share it on your Facebook page. After all, what’s the use of such beautiful places if there’s no one to share them with?
Better yet, hop on over to your favorite travel site and book your vacation before everyone figures out how wonderful it is here. Puerto Rico is, after all, Americas best kept secret.
Now do you see why we love this island, despite the few annoyances here and there? I always thought Joanna was the beach bum in our family but since moving here, I’ve become a convert too.
