Kalichi Adventures offers an amazing canyoning tour that puts you right in the middle of what we think is the most beautiful part of the island.

Hacienda Santa Ana: Home of Ron del Barrilito

I love old, historic buildings and rum, so of course I had to make a point to visit Hacienda Santa Ana – the home of Ron del Barrilito, one of the local Puerto Rican rum producers. Their rum is made and aged here, on the family’s property, which used to be an old sugar hacienda. Though they don’t offer a factory tour, nor offer rum samples, it’s a quick stop where you can get some good photos of a historic site.

This is not to be missed if you are in the area and have a couple hours to spare.

Playa Larga is not easy to get to, and it is not a spot to go to for swimming, but it is our favorite quiet spot to just sit and enjoy the view.
