Here's What We Were Able to Find for You

Get Wet & Get Lucky on Noche de San Juan

June 16th, 2010

…you of the bad things so as to bring good luck or at least help ward off evil throughout the year. Some people will do flips in the water … I don’t really get that. Some people also do more than 3 dunkings (7 or 12 are the other usual number of dunkings). It is all in good fun and everyone is welcome to join in, whether you believe in the tradition or not. The good luck part of this tradition is, perhaps, questionable in its reliab…

Use a Taxi to Go "Out on the Island"

February 24th, 2008

Depending on where you want to travel by taxi you’ll pay either a fixed rate or a metered rate. The Puerto Rico Tourism Company has defined "zones" for the main tourism areas of Old San Juan, Condadao, Isla Verde, the airport and the cruise ship piers. The rates for traveling within and between those tourism zones are fixed and posted. But what if you want to travel outside of the main tourism areas? What will the taxi fare be th…

Look West to See the Best Sunsets

August 12th, 2012

I don’t mean to state the obvious, but you have to look to the west if you want to see great sunsets. Weather permitting, almost every evening somewhere in Puerto Rico you can see an amazing sunset. Where you choose to watch the sun set depends on the backdrop you want to have for your sunset. In Puerto Rico, you can have a mountain, ocean or cityscape horizon. It just depends on where you are between 5pm and 7pm. We live in the mountain…

Glide High Above the Water on a Parasail

January 20th, 2013

…r harnesses were connected to the parachute. They told us to sit down and … just like that … we were up in the air! That was exciting! Then, as you go up up up, the boat gets smaller and smaller. We spent about 10-15 minutes up in the air. We had plenty of time to look around and take photos. We got great birds’ eye view of the islands, the east coast, the marina, and El Conquistador Resort. Then they slowly reeled us in and…

Hike the Meseta Coastal Trail in Guanica Dry Forest

July 8th, 2012

The Guánica State Forest & Bioshpere Reserve (Bosque Estatal de Guánica) is an amazing place. While it is dry, there is still a wide variety of plants and other things to see. So much so, that it has been designated as a United Nations International Biosphere Reserve. There are a number of trails throughout the forest, and then there is the Meseta Trail (Vereda Meseta), which offers a nice hiking trail along the coast. The Gu&…

La Playuela – A Picture-perfect Beach

October 15th, 2009

We were at the Cabo Rojo Lighthouse a couple weeks ago and the panoramic views observation platform on top of the lighthouse were simply magnificent. As I spun around, soaking it all in, I turned toward the north … and there it was … a white crescent beach with bright blue water. I was surprised to see one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen in Puerto Rico. Once we saw it, we knew we had to get over to explore it. We aske…
