...what do
they have in common?
Unique story-telling tour where you will learn our history
from another perspective that you will not find in the
history books:  the spiritual traditions of our Ancestors.  

Join us in this journey through time and space:  from the
indigenous people living in Puerto Rico before the
Europeans arrived, the different ethnic groups brought
from África as slaves to the first
criollos.  As local priests
tried to impose a new religion, the slaves, changed the
names of their gods and referred to them using the name
of catholic saints.  But what about the Taínos?  Do you
know that some people believe that the real religion in
Puerto Rico is
espiritismo (spiritualism).

What do you think?

Where we go?  We will visit Caguas with stops at the
Botanical Gardens, Museo de Caguas (local
archaeological findings), a short walk will take to a local
botánica.
