Culture/Events: 

Puerto Rico’s musical taste springs from the Taino people. Their music borrows the Caribbean tune that was played on handmade instruments such as the mayohuacán, a wooden slit drum.

The guiro is another traditional Puerto Rican instrument played by the Taino people. It is a percussive instrument made from a hollowed gourd.

Other music traditions reached Puerto through interaction with Spanish and African cultures.

These new inhabitants came in with varied instruments, like guitars with varying levels of strings. Puerto Rican Cuatro, which has 10 strings! is the most iconic amongst all the musical equipment.

 

Lime & Dine:

Puerto Rico's national dish clearly has a Caribbean influence, like some of the other food made in the area, but the Puerto Ricans have made arroz con gandules their own with their incredibly delectable sofrito sauce.
