Completely revised and updated for 2006, "Let's Go Puerto Rico" is the only choice for the budget traveller. Researched and compiled entirely by students who know first-hand how to see the world on the cheap, this guide has insider tips and information for the socially conscious traveller and is more useful and opinionated than ever. Puerto Rico boasts some of the world's most beautiful beaches, the only tropical rainforest in the US, acres of coral reef, the world's third largest underground cave system, nine protected reserves and countless diverse ecosystems. A land of contradictions, Puerto Rico is simultaneously the poorest territory in the US and the richest part of Latin America. The island pulsates to a constant cacophony of sound and movement, and you can be sure that there is always a reason to celebrate with the seemingly incessant fiestas. This title includes: detailed maps; listings at various price levels for accommodation, food, attractions and more; information on working, studying and volunteering in the region; and, time and money-saving tips.
