Q: Hi Playground! I’m planning a big first airplane trip with my 9-year-old son, departing from the Philadelphia area. Trying to decide between a summer adventure to Portland, Oregon, or an early winter getaway to Puerto Rico. What do you think? ~ Thanks! LK Berry
Q: Hi Playground! I’m headed to Puerto Rico with my husband and two year old in March.What is your best advice on top things to do with a toddler? Would you make any changes to the itinerary below? Is it worth driving all the way to Cabo Rojo? If you picked three of the four places, which would you recommend? A little about us: Pre-baby we loved active adventure vacations. We are still up for a little adventure, but we are realistic that we want to travel easier with a toddler:
Days 1 – 4: San Juan, Caribe Hilton: Old town, castillo, kids museum, Camuy caves, beach
Days 5 – 7: Cabo Rojo, vacation rental: beaches, hiking, salt flats
Days 8 – 11: Fajardo, El Conquistador Resort: El Yunque and resort activities
Days 12 – 14: Vieques (need a hotel): Beaches, Bioluminescent Bay (we’ll split up two nights to do this without toddler)
~ Thanks! Kelly
Q: Hi Playground! We are taking a cruise with my entire family (12 of us!) for spring break in April and we need a family-friendly place to eat dinner in Old San Juan one night when we’re in port in Puerto Rico. We range in age from 2-76! Any ideas appreciated. Thanks ~ Jen G.
Q: Hi, I’m wondering about going to Puerto Rico for a girlfriend getaway weekend. Are there any resorts you would recommend? This is for a girls trip, so definitely looking for a spot that’s kind of lively, nice pool and beach and good food. We’re shooting for a 5 day/4 night trip in late June. Any insight you have would be great! — Brett S.
