6 days
San Juan – Estimated 8-10 Service Hours

Experience Puerto Rico’s lush, tropical landscapes as you help restore and protect the valuable natural resources of the island. In San Juan, you’ll experience the culture of a major city, while absorbing the Spanish-influenced history and architecture. Then, the focus will shift to conservation of the stunning landscapes and delicate ecosystems, through Service Learning activities such as reforestation or greenhouse construction. And of course, no trip to Puerto Rico is complete without a visit to the palm tree-lined Seven Seas Beach and a kayak ride along a bioluminescent bay.
