18: Flying through the Rainforest  with Yunke Zipline Adventure

Hola, I'm Melina, the journalism intern at the inn this summer. For my podcast cameo about Yunke Zipline Adventure in Luquillo, Bill took Renée's grandchildren and myself to zip through the forest canopy and to conduct interviews with the staff. Not only did we agree it was the best ziplining we have done here on the island, but we also learned the importance of ecotourism in the conservation of Puerto Rico's ecology. I present to you an audio tour of our zipline experience and go in depth with our tour guide Eric and the owner Roberto about their work in ecotourism.

After our intern Melina's raving review of Bob's East Island Surfing Adventures, we took the short drive from the rainforest to La Pared Beach in Luquillo, where Bob Roberts gives his exceptional surf lessons.

Check out our blog for a deeper look into surfing in Luquillo.

16: The Famous Luquillo Beach Kiosks

We stopped by the so-called "hardcore pizza shop" in the Luquillo kiosks, Revolution Pizza Shop, to chat with the owner Kevin Cole. After hearing about his band The Turbo A.C.'s, the evolution of the kiosks and the ingredients that make Revolution pizzas so delicious, we couldn't help but order our favorite pizza, World Peace.
