In UFO circles, Puerto Rico’s reputation has largely been built upon that red eyed goat sucker known as El Chupacabras. In reality, their UFO and humanoid history is much more varied than that.
Magdalena del Amo-Freixedo, the wife of investigator Salvador Freixedo, put it best: “Long ago, long before the arrival of Christopher Columbus, the god Yuquiyú was wont to appear to the natives of the Island, the Taino Indians. And, as the centuries have passed, Puerto Rico has been the scene of all the most controversial and diverse sorts of paranormal phenomena, such as ‘encounters with fairies,’ apparitions of ‘yetis,’ of strange animals, of UFO sightings, of ‘dwarfs with big heads,’ etc., etc.”
On this episode I’m joined by artist Todd Purse to talk about El Chupacabras, the weird beings that have been seen in El Yunque, and many others!
