Whether it is exploring the urban historic district of Old San Juan, or taking some time to picnic, snorkel or take a glass boat tour of the coral coves of Puerto Rico, students will find a lot of happiness in testing their Spanish speaking skills in this environment.
Though Puerto Rico is currently part of the U.S. Territories, the Spanish colonized the island after being discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1493. The name Puerto Rico means ‘rich port’ and San Juan was named after Saint John the Baptist, a Catholic saint.
Because of its strategic position in the Caribbean, Puerto Rico was often vied for by foreign powers such as France and the United States. Complicating matters further, the native population of Taino Indians and the Caribe Indians created grave problems for the Spanish during the early days of settlement of Puerto Rico. Today the diverse population of Puerto Rico is free of conquering intruders and it is a pleasant environment for a Spanish speaking class trips.
