Rainforestinn.com's Podcasts from a bed and breakfast deep in the El Yunque rainforest of Puerto Rico. New travel adventures.

Renée and I leave the Rainforest Inn, our El Yunque retreat, and drive into Old San Juan to interview Eddie and Tisha at Casa Sol bed and breakfast. Casa Sol is a member of our Puerto Rico Bed and Breakfasts Association and he brings intimate knowledge of Puerto Rican politics to the table. He is especially knowledgable about Old San Juan. We discuss the resignation of Ricardo Rosselló and the expected orderly succession of the government. We discuss the impact on tourism and what's been happening with local businesses in Old San Juan. 

Up in the rainforest Renée and I have seen no changes from the remarkably non-violent and orderly March on the capital.

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.
