The "assignment" granted readers access to an unprecedented array of adventures participants explored the pristine undersea worlds of Desecheo Island, La Parguera Wall and spent two unbelievable days of non-stop adventure above and below Mona Island, which has been called the Galapagos of the Caribbean.
Between dives the group was able to gain exclusive entrée to explore the famous river and caverns of Camuy, got a behind-the-scenes peek into the inner workings of Arecibo, discovered the real Gilligan's Island, explored rainforest waterfalls, zip-lined across jungle rivers and rode horeback on deserted beaches. Trip participants were privy to photography and writing seminars, tips and techniques from professional photographer Amos Nachoum, Editor Ty Sawyer and special guests. At the end of the event, the group searched for stories in Old San Juan, then joined together for an exclusive night of culture, food and music at the base of the famous buttress of the 400-year old walled city, hosted by the Puerto Rico Tourism Company.
