Program intended for grandchildren from 9 - 13 years of age.

The coral reefs of Puerto Rico are some of the most beautiful ecosystems in the world. Thousands of species rely on reefs for survival, just as thousands of communities all over the world also depend on them for food, protection and jobs. Come with your grandchild to Puerto Rico and snorkel the waters around this beautiful island to learn firsthand about the biology of coral reefs and the efforts being made to conserve and protect them even as they are threatened. Visit waterfalls, hike and zip-line rainforest trails, go for a night hike in a nature reserve and try both snorkeling and swimming in crystal-clear waters with help from professional divers.


• At Culebra Island, one of the most spectacular eco-destinations in the Caribbean, go snorkeling among turtles, stingrays and coral reefs in the company of certified professionals.
• Go hiking at night in Las Cabezas de San Juan Nature Reserve with a local naturalist who leads you to the top of the Fajardo Lighthouse.
• Experience the beauty and excitement of the rainforest on an expert-led zip-lining adventure in a Rainforest Adventure Eco- Park.
