Bee Caves: we will visit a small but impressive cave (Cueva Maria de la Cruz), an archeological site where evidence of pre-Columbian cultures was discovered in 1948.  Inside were the remaining’s of some of the 1rst inhabitants of the island. Be a witness of the development of the production of honey for the Island. La Bomba: Loiza is known as the Capital of Traditions for its "bomba" music, meet some of Loíza’s talented dancers and artisans who will share an exciting community program, where families can come together, and participate in traditional music and dancing. Enjoy a fun workshop that explains about Bomba, full of percussion and drums which will get your body moving in a second. You will also learn the meanings of the women’s head turban and have the chance to purchase one to take back home as a souvenir. Local Art: visit their quaint local art gallery which includes expositions of over 18 local artists, explaining the history of the local culture and with important art representations as the Vegigante, a folkloric character distinctive of Puerto Rican festival celebrations. Pinones: is the coastal part of the town of Loiza, composed of dozens of kiosks selling fritters, skewered meat, and other pre-colonial recipes, a lot of which feature coconut, corn and cassava.  A perfect way to end your cultural experience by treating you to enjoy lunch near the beach and sampling the Puerto Rican variety of Afro-Caribbean cuisine.
