  • Go to Bio bay in a dark night for sure

    Isla de Vieques Warnings and Dangers

    Do not take the expensive Bio bay tour if it is full moon, or close to full ,especially if the sky is bright with no clouds and a lot of stars. The magical bio effect is lost too much under light. Try to get the tour when it is as dark as possible,rainy, no moon etc.. Don't forget,swimming is not allowed anymore and it erases most of the magic.

    On the island you can find two hiking paths. One which crosses from the Southern beach to the Northern side of the island and one that forks off to the top of the lighthouse.

    Culebra Things to Do

    When we started planning our trip this was instantly on the top of the list. It can be difficult to get to Culebra from the mainland, plan ahead and try to reserve tickets on the ferry - this worked out great for us. The ferry to Culebra Island is about an hour and 15 minutes and you can take a short taxi ride to Flamenco Beach. The beach was...

  • Bakery With Great Pizza

    Fajardo Restaurants

    We stopped at this months-old bakery for some pizza, which was subtly delicious -- thin crust, tangy sauce, good cheese. The coffee (I ordered a latte, but though they use an espresso machine, it seemed more like a cafe con leche (no foam, mellower coffee flavor)) was ideal. The owners were very friendly. We came back the next day for breakfast. I...

  • by cocolopez Updated Oct 6, 2004

    If you are a coffee lover then you must make a stop here. Yauco makes 40% of the coffee in Puerto Rico. I would recommend going into a 'reposteria' (bakery) for a 'cafe con leche' or 'cafe prieto'. This coffee is great with fresh made bread and butter!
