Above the Caribbean Skies
After swimming in our deep blue seas, turn your eyes upwards towards the majestic mountains. Puerto Rico has some of the most beautiful celestial skies in the world. It’s only fitting it is home to the Arecibo Observatory which has been providing the world with a steady stream of scientific data since 1963. The massive dish is 1000 feet (305 meters) across and was the largest single-aperture telescope until 2016 when China built the Five hundred meter Aperture Spherical Telescope (FAST). Treat your crew to a thirty minute VIP tour featuring detailed talks and descriptions, or go solo and enjoy the self-guided tour. Whichever you pick, you are guaranteed to leave with a refreshing outlook about Puerto Rican skies, and on a grander scale, the universe.
