Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! Today, I'm sharing about our eighth day in Puerto Rico. By this point in our trip, we were basically just trying to fit everything that we still wanted to do in as much as possible. There's just so much to see in Puerto Rico and we wanted to do as much as possible while we were there. So day 8, included two activities. First up, we went to Cueva Ventana. Josh's grandmother told us this was a place that we had to see so we were very excited to go. It is a guided tour by a trained (bilingual) biologist so we learned so much! This is the only natural cave in Puerto Rico so we loved being able to visit it and explore. I don't have many pictures of this experience because well, we were in a cave and it was dark. Flash photography wasn't an option because they were very protective of the wildlife and bats that live in the cave. The window (last photo of this experience) was breathtaking! So beautiful!

Our second activity this day was to visit Bacardi for a factory tour. I'm personally not much of a rum drinker but I love factory tours and learning about the history behind a company. This tour was relatively inexpensive (the kids were even free) and I would definitely recommend it. The tour lasted approximately 45 minutes and a knowledgeable tour guide helps you learn more about the process of making rum and how the business began. You do get a complimentary cocktail when you arrive if you are a rum drinker. Overall, we loved visiting Bacardi!

After our tour, we were so hungry and ironcially, I was really craving Olive Garden this day. We ate mostly Puerto Rican food during our trip but I just wanted some carbs and salad. I was also super curious to see what eating at Olive Garden would be like in Puerto Rico. Well, the menu is in Spanish so that made it a little tricky (trickier than Burger King or Wendy's because their menu is in Spanish but they have more pictures). We had such a fun day 7!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a great day!
