Getting off the plane and exiting the terminal, you immerse yourself into an envelope of warmth in Carolina, Puerto Rico. Hailing a cab, you settle into the backseat, taking in the tropical sights that surround you. Darting through the streets and only moments later, the driver stops in front of your hotel. As you exit, you are swept up in a wave of energy, the excitement flowing through the city with a pulse that is palpable. Music blares from every direction and the smell of pork, rice and beans greets you with a wave of hunger. Welcome to San Juan.
