My family loves vacationing in the Caribbean, and due to its wide variety of destinations, the fun starts when we plan the specific country we want to visit. And once again, we got it all and more...when we traveled to Puerto Rico.
We were impressed by how much fun we could pack in a week on this island. It all started with a short “domestic” flight to San Juan where we were able to experience the Spanish heritage of this beautiful city, including the amazing forts, beautiful streets with great architecture, fantastic food and great shopping. We were even able to spend a little time in a nice casino.
A couple days of culture and flavor were followed by days full of activities and magnificent views as we drove to our resort on the northeast coast, Sol Melia Vacation Club at Gran Meliá Puerto Rico. We love outdoor activities so we greatly enjoyed playing golf and tennis, snorkeling around beautiful coral reefs, experiencing the beach and hiking through the miles and miles of mountain-jungle paths that El Yunque Rainforest Park offers. Days ended with great food and some of us escaping briefly to the resort’s spa for a well deserved treatment or even to enjoy a disco night.
With all this activity, we didn’t read more than a few pages in our books… but it was an extraordinary vacation week worth repeating.
