    • Beach close to airport

      San Juan Jan 10, 2015 at 7:50 PM

      We have a long wait for our flight back home and would like to check our luggage then go to a beach to hang out until our flight leaves. Not sure what beach is close enough and safe enough. Also, can you just walk onto any beach or do you have to be staying at a hotel there? Will it be easy to get a taxi back to the airport? Thanks.

      Safe parking at Ceiba airport?

      Puerto Rico Jan 5, 2015 at 8:27 AM

      We'll have a rental car on the big island, but taking a two-night side trip to Vieques by air from Ceiba. I have heard that leaving a car may not be safe. Can anyone tell me if I need to find a "secure" lot, or is basic airport parking adequate?

      Do you feel safe in Fajardo as a tourist?

      Puerto Rico Jan 24, 2015 at 10:01 AM

      I'm planning my wedding @ El conquistador for next year & my family keeps finding articles about puerto rico being unsafe. We are from a suburb near Chicago and I keep reassurimg them it will be fine as long as we stay near the resort. Does anyone have any experiences in this area to speak to? I appreciate the reassurance! Thanks!

      Bio bay tour - Boat or kayak?

      Isla de Vieques Jan 5, 2015 at 8:01 AM

      Trying to decide which tour to take. I hope to take a lot of photos, and figure that handling paddles and camera would be a hassle (not to mention the angst of tipping with a good camera). We can get our recreational paddling in during the day at another venue. On the other hand, a boat with 22 passengers (per Island Adventures Tours) sounds a bit crowded.

      Any advice would be welcome. Abe's appears to be the premier kayak tour outfit? By a stroke of luck, we'll be there at almost the darkest phase of the moon.

      El Yunque road closure

      Puerto Rico Dec 31, 2014 at 9:33 AM

      I understand there is a road closure due to a landslide on highway 191 through El Yunque, but I can't find specifics on just where that closure is. Can anyone help me?

      Ideas? Where to spend our last night

      Puerto Rico Yesterday

      We'll be spending about 12 days in PR in February - 2-4 days in each of the following: Old Town, El Yunque, Vieques and Culebra. We have about 24 hours with a rental car (landing about noon in Ceiba, and departing next day from SJU). Without pounding the road too hard, any suggestions for that last day/night? We're not too keen on big resorts, especially all-inclusives.

    • Fun Bars/Food

      Puerto Rico Jan 9, 2015 at 10:26 AM

      I am going with a group of 11 people on Monday, Feb. 23, 2015. Our cruise ship is in port from 3pm to 10pm. Can anyone one suggest authentic Puerto rican food? We are also looking for fun bars (for over 30 yr olds) to spend the rest of the time in port.

      Thanks!

      Private boat tour

      Puerto Rico Jan 19, 2015 at 7:35 AM

      I am visiting PR in April with 11 of my friends. One of the days I wanted to do a private boat/catamaran tour for 5-6 hours. We are staying in the Condado area. Any recommendations on who I can work with to do a private charter but reasonably priced?

      Thanks in advance.

      Transportation from San Juan

      by grandmaR Online Now Sep 8, 2005 at 12:45 PM

      I'm starting (probably not before time) to research our stops on our
      October cruise.

      We get to San Juan on Friday arriving at 1300 (1 p.m.) and leaving at 2100 (9 p.m.). There are two things that I want to see - El Yunque Rainforest, and El Moro fort in town.

      The tours that are available that I might be interested in are
      a) A 5 hour Rainforest Tour31 @ starting at 1330.
      b) Old and New San Juan City Tour for 3 hours39 @ also starting at
      1330.

      Obviously I can't do both tours. The rainforest hours are 7:30 am to 6 pm. If I took the Old San Juan tour first which ends at 1630 (4:30 pm) would it be too late to get to the rainforest afterwards?

      The websites and Frommer's "Caribbean 2005" say it is about 28 miles from Old San Juan (14 miles of that on an expressway) and takes about 45 minutes to drive. Someone else has told me that it will take an hour and a half on twisty ill marked roads to get there.

      The Insight Guide to Caribbean Cruises says that this is normally a
      half day organized tour including a photo stop at El Luquillo Beach,
      but that "it is a relatively easy place to reach independently by taxi
      or even by bus."

      Is there a good way to negotiate a taxi for a tour to El Yunque?

      If I take a taxi out there how will I get back or will I need to
      pay for the taxi to wait? About how much will that cost?
