The world largest conservatory and telescope located in Arecibo, Puerto Rico was highlighted in  in Jodie Foster's film Contact and even one of the James Bonds movies, Goldeneye.

Take a nighttime excursion into the waters of Puerto Mosquito in Vieques Island by kayak and as you run your hand in the water, the water will begin to light up in a neon blue hue. The water is home to microorganisms that give off light when the water is disturbed, making for one of the most unique environments in the world.

Not all Shopping Malls are alike...this one is the largest shopping mall in the Caribbean and the third largest in Latin America.

8. Botanical Gardens
The Garden is a living laboratory of the native flora of Puerto Rico, with over 200 species of tropical and sub-tropical plants. Daily 9:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. (787/250-0000 ext 6580)

9.  Port of San Juan Cruise Ships
As an anchor on Eastern and Southern Caribbean itineraries, most cruise ships dock right in the heart of Old San Juan, which dates back to the 16th century. Its mainstream attractions include the imposing El Morro fort, which dates back to 1539; the Cathedral of San Juan, where the island's first governor, Ponce de Leon, is buried; La Fortaleza, the oldest governor's mansion on U.S. soil; several colonial plazas; and the triumvirate of Calle del Cristo, Calle San Jose and Calle Fortaleza for shopping. Calle del Cristo, in particular, is chock-full of art galleries, artisan studios and distinctive boutiques. But, if you're a "been there, done that" visitor to Old San Juan, there's oh so much more to explore.
