    Flying through the Rainforest with Yunke Zipline Adventure

    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.

    The Famous Luquillo Beach Kiosks

    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.

Nice To Discover Things With You Two..

I enjoyed Epidode 15 the best. But guys, it's pronounced "Reen-cone", not "Rin-Con". I want you guys to take classes in Spanish, it's so expressive! Laurie- sometimes you sound just like Cher!!! Keep exploring!!!

Just found out via 23 and me that I am Puerto Rican and not Mexican as I previously thought. I’m 50 years old and trying to emerge myself in my new found roots and culture. Thank you for your podcast. ✌🏽💛
