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.

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…

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.
