a type of ethnic clothing used for cultural events found south of the United States (U.S.)
Even though the word is normally used together, bomba y plena are actually two entirely different types of music that are coupled with dance. Bomba, pure African, was brought over by black slaves who worked on the island's sugar plantations. It's a rhythmic music using barrel-shapped drums covered with tightly stretched animal skins and played by hand. This form of music is produced by one large drum plus a smaller drum called a subidor. The drums are accompanied by the rhythmical beating of sticks and maracas to create a swelling tide of drumbeats, in which "aficionados" can hear drummers bang out a series of responses one to another.
A specific type of music that began in the Caribbean: Puerto Rico
Indulge in Edible Sea Snails or Locos from Chile

Vieques Snorkeling Tour from San Juan
You can explore the underwater wonderland of Vieques. This 7-hour snorkeling and beach trip to one of the Caribbean’s most beautiful islands. You will be able to go away from the snorkel crowds as you head to this secluded spot. With views of marine creatures like sea turtles, rays and tropical fish, you’ll feel like you’ve entered your own aquarium. Complete your day with some relaxation time on one Vieques’ best beaches with also great refreshments.
Locos are a popular specialty in Chile. Chile banned the fishing of locos in 1989, after the population had dropped dramatically. Today, the only legal way for Chilean fishermen to catch locos is to have a permit. The summertime, which is December through April, is the best time to eat fresh locos.
iconic piece of clothing with origins in Central and South America is the Poncho. Use of the Poncho dates as far back as 500 B.C., before Spanish colonization. Initially designed out of materials such as wool or fleece, Ponchos were intended to keep the wearer warm and dry even in the wettest of climates. Their exceptional effectiveness at this task led to a cheap plastic adaptation as they have quickly become a must in wetter climates.
