In late 2017, the Caribbean island of Puerto Rico was rocked to its core by hurricane Maria. You may have heard of it. But what have you done about it?
That’s the question that Sperry Ambassador, Siren Williams, asked herself when deciding where to travel earlier this year. Never one to run from a challenge – in fact, last year, Siren herself stuck around her hometown off the coast of Florida during one of the many weather events that struck the Orange State – she quickly landed on Puerto Rico. Bags packed (and full of Sperry sandals, of course), Siren was ready to go.
On top of supporting the local people and economy, which had taken a hit from decreased tourism, Siren – a skilled surfer with a love of the ocean – couldn’t wait to catch some serious waves. We caught up with Siren to talk about her trip and learn why, Mother Nature aside, Puerto Rico is still a must-visit destination.
