Puerto Rico Wants You To Visit

Puerto Rico travel

An amazing thing happened at a recent meeting I had with tourism officials from Puerto Rico. Instead of discussing the long term negative effects on tourism from the recent destructive hurricane, they started talking about Spring Break. Puerto Rico’s message to the world is: Please come visit and be part of their comeback!

I was as surprised as you probably are. Continue reading “Puerto Rico Wants You To Visit”

#TravelTuesday Q&A: Two Week Puerto Rico Getaway with a Toddler

puerto_rico-wikipedia
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

Puerto Rico

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.
