Tragedy on Vacation, Drowning at the Beach, Balneario El Escambron Beach, family beach in san juan, puerto rico, traveling with kids, family travel
I was completely oblivious to what was going on, until the screaming and the shouting became so loud and overpowering that it was impossible to tune out.

Black Sand Beach, Playa Negra, Vieques, Magnetic Beach, Puerto Rico, family travel, traveling with kids
