Today's blogger: Renata Novais

Old_San_Juan  Today we enjoyed our recreational day. We went to Old San Juan, where there are two forts (El Moro and San Cristobal) many souvenir stores, a cemetery by the ocean and beautiful architecture. We had lunch in Old San Juan enjoying regional dishes such as the Mofondo. After that we went to Luquillo Beach which amazed everyone  Beach  with its warm waters and shining sun. After having a wonderful time at the ocean it was time for some adventure: we went to Fajardo, where the Carribean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean and a masterpiece of nature called bioluminescence takes place. We kayaked in doubles to the Bio Bay and learned about the importance of the mangrove and of the plankton to that ecosystem. From sea to forest we are gradually learning more about the importance of ecosystems and how they are all connected.
