    Contrary to popular belief, it DOES get cold in the tropics, especially when it starts to rain.We were at the beach next to our hotel, when it started to pour. I wanted to stay out just for the experience, but it got so cold, that I had to run back to the hotel, and jump into a hot shower.Than we went to another beach, and 1 minute, it was 85...

  • Mosquito Net and Mosquito Repellant

    My daughter and I brought our own mosquito net and mosquito repellant because we travelled in the jungles of Puerto Rico. I don't think you needed a mosquito net if you just visit San Juan or the neighboring cities. But, if you travel to Maricao and head to the jungles, mosquito net is a must! Make sure to pack light clothes because the weather of...

  • Comfortable Walking shoes

    When you have a camera bag, make sure to cover your camera with a plastic bag. It rains a lot in Puerto Rico! Comfortable shoes are important. Make sure to wear them when you go to El Morro.

    Pack light! A back pack will do. Women: For some reason I feel compelled to wear dresses in Puerto Rico. Maybe it's because they're so much cooler than pants & shorts. Bring at least a couple of casual dresses or sarongs. Sunglasses & sandals are a must. Sunblock, eardrops & sinus medicine.

    It is hot and humid in Puerto Rico, so pack accordingly. Light clothes, shorts, sandals, sunglases, and a hat would be very helpful. A strong UV protection lotion is a must. Also, some mosquito repellant will make your life a lot easier. You'll find modern pharmacies all over the island, so you can buy there all the basic things you'll need...

    As little as possible. Lots of evening wear if you're going out. Same with makeup and perfume for women. I can do two weeks on two carryon bags (don't carry on any more, but still take). I use buses to get from airport to the Condado (75cents vs. $15) and have to be able to manage luggage with lots of people around. Also, sun screen. Shoes you can...

    From my own personal experience, take light clothing if travelling during the summer months such as shorts, cotten shirts and definately sandles. You can find practically everything in regards to toiletries and medical supplies on the island, but things are a bit expensive so depending on how long you are going to be there, bring your...

    Don't come with heavy luggage because you just need to be comfortable...unless you are going to stay in a five star hotel :-) Most of the time you should be wearing sport and light clothes.

    Pack a swimming suit. There are so many wonderful beaches. Take a mask and snorkle. I spent four hours one day just floating and snorkling.

  • Packing List

    You don't need a whole lot of clothes, so pack light unless you plan on taking your own hiking gear or scuba tanks. You sure don't need a parka, but bring beach sandals for obvious reasons and an umbrella because it can come up a bad cloud in no time flat. A 35mm camera will do just fine.

    If you bring luggage, get a nice suitcase and put a lock on it. Well, if you're gonna do a lot of walking, wear socks and comfortable sneakers, shorts and a tank top, cause it's very hot down there. And if you're going to the beach, swim suit, sandals, and a towel, and always bring a change of clothes just incase you decide to go out to eat...

    Don't forget your driving licence! There are no trains and not regular buses lines. The only public choose is 'Publico' (vans by the letters P or PD) that are shared taxis for also twelve passengers. This option is an hallucinating experience also for short distances, like to go to the beach, due to the traffic jam and to the numbers of stops for...
