      last-minute Puerto Rico adventure

      Puerto Rico Dec 26, 2016 at 5:12 AM

      we have an opportunity to go VERY last-minute to Puerto Rico. Where in PR would you go if you wanted a semi-budget but more important clean and safe way to enjoy the beach/sea/water not too tough to get to? It's the 26th and we'd be leaving the 28th so there's not a lot of time to plan. I looked around and can easily dig into specific locations but trying to figure out which one so far has been an adventure. We may stay a night or three in San Juan to see the city.
      We have about a week including New Year's Eve.
      Any other tips (airport transfer, getting around, rental car if needed, hotels, activities, food, etc, etc). I have no problem doing my research on food, hotels, etc.
      Thanks in advance for any tips. I'll also be off to try to find PR pages to browse.
      Steve

      I have visited San Juan and would like to visit Ponce, I will be alone and would like to know the safest places to visit. In addition I am considering re-locating to Puerto Rico I am from Chicago, IL born and raised. I'll be 40 this year no husband/children (my preference) so I can go move at any time!

      travelling alone:accommodation in san juan and ponce

      Ponce Dec 20, 2005 at 12:54 PM

      Hello Everybody
      My name is Kimish. I am 24yrs guy studying at University of Southern California los angeles. I am travelling to Puerto Rico from 29th of dec to 5th Jan. At this moment I am desperately looking for accommodation. I know there are plenty of them available but since I am travelling alone and I am looking for cheap place to sleep I could not find one. I have travelled around europe where they have lot of youth hostels which are cheap and lot fun to be at. But I could not find anything like that for Puerto Rico not atleast online. I know this message is getting quite long but I appreciate if you read it.
      So back to the topic, if anyone has any idea about cheap place to sleep, I just need a place to crash. I dont want to spend more than40. I can carry my sleeping bag with me so if anyone has any idea about camping or stuff please let me know. Well this is kind weird but I am in desperate situation so if anyone can host me at their place ( I am willing to pay) then that will be great as well. Infact in that way I can get chance to meet local people and know about culture as well. I am pretty easy going.
      In anycase if anyone around san juan or ponce is there and would like to give me company to hang out with and show around that will be great as well.

      Hoping for numerous responses.
      Thanks
      Kimish

    • Transport to Ponce

      I am taking a group of Barbadian Art students to Ponce from San Juan - what is the best/cheapest way? There are 13 of us in total, and the cheapest mini van with driver = US$400. What about public transport? Or a cheaper mini van hire - none of us dare drive! Sandie
