Welcome to El Yunque - Part 1

(Institute Research Project Leader Grizelle González)


It's a belief that has been here for generations, that as hurricanes come the Luquillo mountains are the first barrier that they encounter.

It comes from the indigenous background where they saw the mountain as a sacred place.

It's a little sad to think that they probably give their hardest to protect us all.
