Puerto Rico Sports & Outdoors

  • Sailing and boating

    San Juan Sports & Outdoors

    We came in on a cruise ship, escorted by the Coast Guard. The Coast Guard station was near where our ship docked (photos 1 and 2). If I was coming on a smaller boat it would be important to me that Sector San Juan is responsible for all Coast Guard missions throughout the Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands region. USCG Sector San Juan Hours of...

    San Juan Sports & Outdoors

    I went scuba diving nearly every weekend that I was in San Juan. My first weekend I went out to the Eastern coast and was somewhat disappointed in the visibility and fish (or lack there of). At the end of the dive, I ask the divemaster for recommendations on dives around PR. His immediate response was "go to Desecheo." Furthermore, he even highly...

  • Fishing it up!

    There are piers all around Puerto Rico where you can find people fishing all day. These guys were catching fish like crazy and some weren't using just a hook and a line! Apparently, they fish for small ones to use as bait to get the big ones. This is open all day long to anyone. It is a nice option if you can't afford a $700 deep sea fishing...

  • North side Waves

    I was told by most people the North side of the island has the best surfing waves. The day that we went to go surfing the waves were so big! I believe they were about 6-8 feet. That was a bit much for me. But the ocean was packed with surfers. I saw a style of surfing that I hadn't before called paddle boarding. Apparently, it is really...

Some Spanish authorities feel that the horse is a descendent of the Berber, the Andalusian and the extinct Spanish Jennet. What is known is that in 1510, Captain Martin de Salazar brought some horses under the...

  • Best Snorkeling/Scuba DIving in Puerto...

    I got this tip from a dive instructor that lived in Puerto Rico for many years and thought I would pass it along. The best snorkeling and scuba diving in Puerto Rico is on a small island off the coast called Palomino Island. You can access this island by taking a ferry from the Wyndham El Conquistador hotel. Not many people are aware of this...

  • Swimming

    Swimming... The water temperature was perfect. My guess is that it was 84 degrees Farenheit. The perfect temperature. And there weren't that many waves, so it was really nice do laps. Mr Bigg didn't swim, and I hate swimming alone. (Someone larger than me should swim by my side to look like better Shark Bait!) But I did swim regardless. Nothing...
