Beaches

by Supermann43

I will be staying at the New Sheraton Puerto Rico Hotel and Casino in San Juan across the street from the convention center and my girlfriend loves the beach. I am not a beach fan but what is the closet decent safe beaches near the hotel. Also is their a particular tour service to take us to a very good beach like Luquillo beach or even Flamenco Beach and about how much would be the cost.

I was in PR quite awhile ago, and we took a tour to Luquillo. I think it was arranged through the hotel, and we enjoyed it very much. It also went to the Rainforest and there was a stop for a pina coloda! Luquillo is a beautiful beach, and I'm sure the hotel will help you out.

Forest for the Trees

by grandmaR

One of the main things I wanted to do when we were in San Juan was to visit this rainforest. It is unique in the Caribbean and in the National Park/Forest system of the US. You should stop at the Visitor's Center first to find out about the park. They have a film (both in Spanish and English) narrated by Jimmy Smits

Unfortunately it is really hard to get there. You either have to rent a car or take a tour. There is also a lot of traffic on the roads. I got to see some of the land snails. There were hibiscus and ginger flowers, and traveler's palms. Marian told us there were more than 75 species of ferns (photo 5).

My favorite was a tree with a palmate leaf which turned over (white side up) when it was going to rain. Actually, it turns over when there is a breeze which there often is just before rain shower. Since the rain forest does get a lot of rain, the white side is visible fairly often.

San Sebastian Street Festival

by Dabs

2nd visit to the festival January 2011

The San Sebastian Street Festival takes place on the 3rd weekend in January, in 2010 we wandered into Old San Juan having no idea that a huge festival was going on that day, when we arrived into town around 11am they were just setting up for it and we didn't realize how big it would be. We took the ferry over to Catano and then we couldn't get back as the line for the ferry was a couple hours long and no one seemed to be interested in taking a taxi although we did finally get enough tourists together and found one cab to take us back.

The festival has been taking place for more than 50 years, it was created to give artists a venue to exhibit their work at and to bring business to Old San Juan and I have to say that it was been very successful as both times Old San Juan was mobbed with people. Some of the locals we talked to seemed a bit annoyed by it as it creates massive traffic jams and lots of people overimbibe and stay out way past when the festival ends but most people just seemed to be enjoying themselves. Lots of food vendors, several stages with musical acts, groups of people jamming in the streets and wall to wall people on the streets of Old San Juan, at the intersections on San Sebastian Street there would be large groups of people, banging on drums or chanting, surrounded by more people watching or trying to push their way through to somewhere else, some wearing traditional Puerto Rican Masks (vejigantes) in vibrant colors carved into grotesque shapes. We weren't around in the evening on either visit but apparently things get even wilder in the evening with live music, dancing in the streets and lots of alcohol.

Packing List

by arieyael

A backpack for walking in San Juan for your goodies is a good idea so your hands are free for taking pictures. A light jacket is advisable since it can get cool in the evenings. Shorts, t-shirts, comfortable shoes for walking. Dress clothes and clubbing clothes, there are some really good restaurants that don't except shorts or jeans. The usual. Sunblock!

Bananas, Pineapple and Bay Oil

by eduar68

The "plaza del mercado" or produce market in Rio Piedras is an unique place. The actual market was reconstructed after a gas explosion severely damaged the place. This is a place where the smell of vegetables and fruits fills the air. You can get freshly made smoothies and juices at very good prices and even voodoo-like and folk remedies for all kinds of ailments, posessions and curses included!! The central court has a number of local kiosks with simple puertorrican working class meals. This is a perfect place to see a portion of real life in Puerto Rico, far away from beaches and casinos. However, this is an strictly 9-5 place and the whole area becomes empty and even dangerous in the evenings.
