This was our second visit to El Morro with our High School mission group of 17 kids this trip. The kids that were on our trip in 2011 were excited to visit again making the kids who hadn't been yet, very excited. The kids love exploring this massive Fort. The Fort affords lots of photo opportunities, providing lots of great memories for the kids. A special treat was climbing to the lookout of the still working lighthouse. Recommend watching the 10 minute movie about the Fort. Provides a lot of interesting information and an added bonus was that the theatre is air conditioned. We were very fortunate that the 9th annual Artisans' Fair with over 200 artisans happened to be the weekend we were there. We got to see and purchase the islands' traditional arts and handcrafts directly from the people who made them. Definitely worth considering when scheduling our next trip.
