      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.

      San Juan Puerto Rico

      Puerto Rico Sep 12, 2016 at 7:27 PM

      On a spur of the moment I purchased tickets to San Juan Puerto Rico for early November. The round-trip airfare was too good to pass up, especially to a place I've always wanted to visit. My question is where should I stay? I'm debating renting an apartment or an all-inclusive resort. I'll be there for 5 days would love to keep the cost under $1000. Has anyone rented an apartment from the locals? If so where and how did you like it. My purpose is to relax, chill at the beach and enjoy the culture and possibly make a friend or two. I'm not big into the club scene but wouldn't mind checking out one or two. Mainly I just want to have a good and safe vacation to remember.

    • transportation between San Juan and Caguas?

      Puerto Rico Aug 28, 2016 at 2:09 PM

      Going to PR for first time in November to attend a wedding in Caguas and vaca for a couple weeks.
      Staying in San Juan and going to Caguas several times.
      I've been studying transportation options and unless I rent a car, it doesn't look like there are many transportation options between San Juan and Caguas.
      Any thoughts?
      Taxi? Uber? Train? ??
      IF, I end up renting a car, any recommendations regarding rental companies,etc.?
      Thanks in advance!

    • Zip lining

      Puerto Rico Aug 7, 2016 at 7:28 PM

      Hello fellow travelers. I am looking for your suggestions on which zip lining location to go to. I found several locations but having a hard time choosing. I've zip lined before (in Belize) and looking for a spot no more than one hour outside of San Juan. I am informed of what the hotel is doing about Zika prevention but do I need to worry about it since zip lining locations are in the woods/forest?

      My husband and I booked our first trip to Puerto Rico and our 2.5 yr old daughter was going to stay with family. Something came up and now we don't have that option - has anyone traveled to Puerto Rico with a toddler to give insight if we should still go or maybe just go to Florida instead? We are booked at the Intercontinental San Juan if anyone has recent reviews of there as well. Thanks!

      exact location of Luquillo Beach

      Luquillo Oct 25, 2015 at 7:42 PM

      My family and I are looking for vacation rentals in Luquillo (close to the beach). This is our second trip to PR, and want a different experience than the first time in San Juan.
      We hear how beautiful and picturesque Luquillo Beach is and want to stay as close as possible. From my research so far, it doesn't seem that there are actual properties on the beach itself - everything seems to be at least a 1/4 mile away, does that seem correct? We don't want to be lugging beach equipment to and from a rental car everyday to drive over - we'd prefer to be right there.
      Also, we've noticed that alot of the properties and the main beach itself seem to close up by 7pm - is safety an issue? Everything I've read states that the area is just some sleepy town, but it seems quite like a precaution for a 'safe, sleepy beach town'.

      Thanks as usual to this community for any answers.
