What Ev Wednesday ~ Land of the ChupaCabra

Jun 8, 2011

This year we've decided to do more internal tourism on our little island. It's been over 500 years since Columbus discovered this slice of the Caribbean and the island is jam packed with history.  Not only can you find great historical value in just about every town, there's said to be a few paranormal hotspots, too.  
         My family consist of a conspiracy theorist,  ghost hunters, a budding exobiologist (a person who studies and theorizes ET life), a believer in imaginary friends and an avid reader (that would be me). Thank goodness these are all hobbies and not anyone's full time job.   I had a fun summer planned out for them, filled with swimming, hiking, camping, horseback riding, etc.  But my plans seem to have changed around a bit, democracy rules.  This year my lovely family has decided to visit paranormal hotspots and of course visit the origins of a few urban legends that were born here on the island. I  do love a good adventure, so I've decided to do a few more things this summer.  LOL    

The following are a few of the places and items on the list:

1. El ChupaCabra - allegedly unknown creature first reportedly seen March of 1995 in  Puerto Rico. (the chupa cabra has since gone global).  
             We plan to visit the first place it was sighted and of course try to find the out more.

2.   UFO Airport!  Yeah, you heard right!  Some guy out in Lajas, Puerto Rico has decided to build a landing strip for our otherworldly friends.

3. "Extraterrestrial Route" Route 303  This is also found in Lajas, it all has to do with strange sightings in the area.  We actually have a sign!

4.   El Morro- Fortress in San Juan,Puerto Rico.  It is said that the ghost of a Spanish soldier can be seen and heard in a sentry box  in the fort.   ( Not to happy about the ghost hunting, not my cup of tea.  I'd rather read about it!)

5.  La Llorona's Swing -  Cabo Rojo, Puerto Rico.  It is said that a little girl's ghost can be seen with a pet puppy after midnight.

I wish it were highlanders and vampires we were searching for, but a girl can dream,
 especially if she has a good book.
I'd love to hear from anyone who has gone on ghost tours, or visited haunted places!  
Please feel free to give me some pointers.


  1. I love haunted places. Yours look great! I hope you blog about this with pictures and stories and stuff. I can't wait to read it!

  2. My Puero Rican friend introduced us to the El ChupaCabra. Have had several dreams about those creepy creatures! Hehe have fun!

  3. I think this sounds like a fun and interesting summer line up...much more exciting than mine! I hope we get to live vicariously through your experiences. :)

  4. Wow, what a way to spend your vacation! There is no option to stay in the hotel every now and then, and read? You have to go ghost hunting with them? I am like you, I prefer reading about them!

  5. Hey Dana! You want to go to EL Yunque. It's located in Rio Grande Puerto Rico wich is were I was raised! All my family lives there and some of them have seen strange lights! you might want to check it out..


I just love hearing what you have to say. Drop me a few lines. 8-D
