Frequently Asked Questions

What is the purpose of this blog / site?

We came up with the idea for blog as a source of unbiased opinions about things to do while visiting Puerto Rico.

We’re experiencing the good, the bad, and the ugly just like you would on vacation.

We like to think that this blog serves as an alternative to those other travel guides where all the articles and reviews are written by people getting a “free ride”, so to speak.The comments and observations contained in these pages are the result of our personal experience living in, and traveling around, Puerto Rico. These are opinions from our point of view.
