next to Dominican Republic to West . It was

discovered by Christopher Columbus on his

second voyage in 1493 . It is full of rich

Spanish history  since it was owned by Spain

until the United States took over the island in

1898. The capital of Puerto Rico is San Juan

and is the top spot for tourist to visit. These

are some spots to see in Puerto Rico :

This is a fort built by the Spanish to protect

the city from attacks by sea. When at el

Morro you can see San Juan the entrance to

the city, feel the breeze of the trade winds
