Puerto Rico

I've never been to Puerto Rico.

A part of the U.S.,'s geography is greatly varied over the island. Palm-lined beachs, caves, forest preserves-the only tropical rainforest on U.S. soil, rugged mountains. The mountains formed from volcanic activity. While the highest peak towers above the island, just a ways off, is the Puerto Rico Trough, one of the deepest depressions in the Atlantic. If the base of these mountains were at sea level, it has been said that they would tower over Mt. Everst!

That I'd like to see.
