CIELO Puerto Rico & Dominican Republic


Puerto Rico is a U.S. territory with its own unique culture and environment. Experience Puerto Rican culture through food, art and dance while also exploring the natural wonders like hiking in El Yunque National Rainforest and going on a late-night Bioluminescent Kayak tour. Become more informed about the political situation in Puerto Rico by visiting La Fortaleza, meeting with the Governor and participating in service learning projects.

The Puerto Rico program offers students from the University of Arizona a unique opportunity to experience and learn about Puerto Rico firsthand. Participants will engage with Puerto Rican history, culture, and government through service learning, community/cultural engagement, dialogue, and reflection.
