San Juan National Historic Site preserves stories of great ambition and aspirations. Countries fought for control of this tiny yet strategic island for centuries. Generations of soldiers have lived and worked within the forts. Visitors today are as inspired by these stories as they are by the beauty of the architecture and the ingenuity of design and engineering of this World Heritage Site.

In September of 2017, Hurricane Irma, one of the strongest known hurricanes in the Atlantic, lashed the Caribbean and Florida. It was followed within days by Hurricane Maria, another devastating hurricane that also hit Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands, among other places.

Martime Heritage of Puerto Rico The maritime heritage of Puerto Rico begins when the islands were first settled by people from South America, perhaps as early as 4,000 years ago. Archeological evidence indicates there was a Pan-Caribbean trade network among indigenous populations. Puerto Rico has been a seafaring hub for over 500 years and possesses a correspondingly rich and diverse number of sites underwater. Based on archival research, there are more than 200 shipwrecks in the waters of Puerto Rico. Diver investigates the SS Antonio
