Any place with a history as storied as Puerto Rico's will have its share of fairy tales, fables, and legends. Some are well-known, like the infamous chupacabra. Others are more the stuff of local folklore, like the Legend of the Hummingbird. And still others are even based on scientific fact, like the raining frogs. It's always fun to learn about the place you're visiting, and a look at these tall tales will give you some creative insight into the local history and culture.
Got any other Puerto Rican myths, legends, and folk tales that you've heard about? Share them with me in the forum. If it's a really good one, I'll have to add it to the list.
