  • Old San Juan

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    San Juan Things to Do

    Sightseeing in Old San Juan, just walking around, is one of the best activities while in Puerto Rico. Just wander the streets, peek into the church, some of the many cafes and bars and restaurants, and just be enchanted by the old city. It is reminiscent of pirate days when Old San Juan was the heart of the Caribbean and Spanish Empire. The whole...

    4 out of 5 stars

    San Juan Restaurants

    Metropol is the worst restaurant in Isla Verde. My husband, my son and me went there and they served us a fish full of worms. We notify them and they said nothing at all and after all this we have to pay 74.00 for the food. Not Recommended. NONE

  • 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.

El Yunque National Forest

  • La Mina Falls & La Mina Trail

    El Yunque National Forest Things to Do

    We spent the morning in El Yunque hiking down La Mina trail to the falls. El Yunque National Park isn't super big, and only really has one road through it, so to make the most of your trip there it's best to try to do a hike or too. La Mina Trail is a popular one, because at the end you're rewarded by being able to swim in a pool beneath a...

    El Yunque National Forest Things to Do

    A visit to El Yunque is free if you don't stop by the visitor center, but I recommend doing so. It's only $4 a person, and you can glean a lot of information about both El Yunque and rainforests around the world from the exhibits there. It's also a good idea to stop and get a map and information on any hikes you'd like to do from one of the very...

    Ponce Things to Do

    This art museum was the main reason I became interested in a daytrip to Ponce to start with--its art is really great! It has a wide selection of both European and Puerto Rican exhibits. When we were there they had a traveling exhibit about the Vienna Secessionists, which was fascinating. Their crown jewel is "Flaming June" by Sir Edward Leighton....

  • Plaza las Delicias

    Ponce Things to Do

    Plaza las Delicias is a really fun square/park in Ponce. There are fountains and benches and trees like in any park, a cathedral, the iconic Parque de Bombas (a revamped old fire station) that has become a symbol of Ponce, and 16 lion sculptures, each painted in a different way by local artists. I have a particular affinity for lions, so it was...

Isla Culebrita

  • Hiking on Culebrita

    Isla Culebrita Things to Do

    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. These hikes are quiet easy; and particularly the one to the lighthouse offers splendid views over Culebrita and the neighboring islands of Culbebra, Esperanza and Puerto Rico,...

  • Turtle Nesting

    Isla Culebrita Warnings and Dangers

    The island of Culebrita is a turtle nesting ground; therefore no camping, open fires or pets allowed on the island. Also there are specific regulations where to drop the anchor of your boat or yacht.

  • Snorkeling in Culebrita

    Isla Culebrita Things to Do

    The entire island is surrounded by stunning reefs with crystal clean seas. The best snorkeling reefs one can find on the Southern Island between Culebrita and the island of Culebra. Remember when you go snorkeling here that this is a fragile ecosystem and once it is broken it will take years to repair itself.

    Fajardo Things to Do

    The bio bay is probably one of the main reasons to visit Fajardo. There are multiple companies that give the tours, but they are all more or less the same, charging $45-50/person, giving guided tours in double kayaks, and having some snacks and refreshments at the end. You paddle through a channel bordered by mangroves and then out into the...

  • 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...

    This local restaurant in the Condado area, is located just south /around the corner from At Wind Chimes Inn where we stayed. It not only boasts free parking (a sacred commodity in San Juan) but it also offers a large variety of local favorites at good prices. That's not all, Bebo's is one of the cleanest restaurants around. While it lacks decor,...

    Condado Restaurants

    This is a really cool looking place, but everything about it screams tourist trap.

    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...

  • 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!
