Old San Juan

Consisting of 400 restored buildings from the 16th- and 17th-century Spanish colonial period, this area in San Juan is steeped in history with an old-world and romantic European charm.

Reviewed By KayTee9 - New England - USA

We drove through both San Juan and Old San Juan in a private bus on a time schedule, so we had no time to stop except VERY briefly. It is a city with both an old and a new part, full of lovely old Spanish architecture as well as modern buildings, and areas filled with "local flavor". Some parts had been damaged by the recent 2017 hurricanes, and that was sad to see. There is so much potentially to see and do. I wish we had had more time. When you are on a cruise ship tour, you get at best a brief overview. I like to take this kind of tour in a foreign port when I know I have very little time. At least I get the flavor of the city. Perhaps I can return one day.

Sandra Farms Coffee

Reviewed By Barry G - Brooklyn, New York

A surprising gem that we found to be a highlight of our vacation. The scenic drive was part of the experience. The individualized tour given by Carmilo gave us true insight into the growth and production of truly fine coffee. As a committed tea drinker, I was skeptical of tasting black coffee, as suggested by our tour guide. However, this coffee did not need any enhancement. Smooth and rich! Try the chocolate samples with coffee beans, and you will want to take some home. Delicious! Thanks, Carmilo, wonderful !

My son (17) and I (47) have never kiteboarded. We loved it! Juan at 15 Knots made it very easy to schedule with only 2 hours notice, and Freddy was simply a superb teacher. Both my son and I were successfully kiteboarding after 2 hours. We can't wait to do it again!

Excelllent adventure. Lots of zip line opportunities here from mild to thrilling. Fully open as of 3/1/18, but be careful which route you take as the bridge at Ciales was still out. Definitely enjoyed The Monster, a thrilling (about) 90 second high speed ride!

Took friends on 2 hour ride and really enjoyed the experience. Problem was I have a bad hip but never even considered it when making reservation. Lot of pain during and after ride but it was still a great time.
Fernando and Kevin were GREAT. Very good job explaining everything, attention to detail, explaining history/background pertinent to Puerto Rican roots. Really interesting
and informative.They were also very attentive to riders during the time we spent with them, very helpful. Would highly recommend.

La Cueva del Indio

This cave on the water along the rugged coast in Arecibo contains a number of Taino petroglyphs. The views of the north coast are amazing.

Reviewed By Baltzer - Halifax, Canada

When you think of a cave, you think of a wet hole in the ground, inhabited by bats, and if nothing else, batman. Nothing special, but can be cool on occasion. I am fairly confident this cave with exceed these expectations.
Finding this location isn't too difficult. We read that parking isn't great in the area and you should pay to park since the streets are narrow. We didn't realize beforehand you could simply park onsite. There is a sign indicting the entrance to the cave. From what I understand, this is private property, so they can charge what they want for parking - depending on how they feel that day. There seemed to be a lot of space, and I believe we ended up paying $5 or $10 for us to park and see the cave (2 people).
The cave can be a little tricky to find once you arrive, as once you get into the area, there are no signs to guide you. There is however, a path to follow. Once you reach the end of the path you come to a lava field and ocean. There is a nice arc rock on the water if you go right (great for taking pics) but the actual cave is to the left. It doesn't appear to be there as the whole area is relatively flat. You actually have to climb down a series of natural stairs to find a ladder to get into the cave. The ladder is held on by a rope tied to a rock (felt sturdy), but wouldn't be good for the faint of heart.
The caves themselves are amazing! Lots of Petroglyphs. I've never seen anything like it. It was truly amazing. Touching and seeing history placed there from the Taino Indians was unreal. There are several sections to the cave. Most of the cave floor is sand but has sections where you need to cross water. The cave has parts where it's open to the air above, so you never felt like it was indeed a cave.
I would recommend this anyone going to Puerto Rico. There really is nothing bad I can say and was an experience of a life time. I read that other people took a tour. Didn't even know this was an option and we went around ourselves which I enjoyed. We took our time and had a great visit!
If you want to see this area, I have two videos up about it on my YouTube channel. Just visit Josh the Travel Guy to check them out!

Palomino Island

A private island where Wyndham El Conquistador guests are often ferried for more water activities.

Reviewed By ash2105 - Washington DC, District of Columbia

We loved visiting this island and did so for 3 days end of Feb/begin March. Each day we did a different activity ... however keep in mind you are a captive visitor so rental prices are high. On the same note, since there is only one option for restaurant on the island you pay for and enjoy what you get :) The bar service was good but restaurant service was OK. There is also a gift shop that sells ice cream.
Even on Sunday the island was not crowded but on the other side of the ferry pier there were many private/rental boats with loud music throughout the day ... we were fine with that music but if you want quiet then go around the bend and find some peace there. Around the bend it is scenic as well. If you plan to snorkel and swim, I'd suggest you have swim shoes (especially for kids). There is a smaller island next to it (small sand bar), that we were told has better snorkeling experience but you have to rent a boat to get there.
The ferry ride to and from was smooth sailing, the kids liked that part of the "beach trip" as well. From our perspective though it was ~ 45 - 60 minute from room to the island, as first you wait for the trolley down the hill, then you wait for the ferry (it was every 30 minutes on weekdays) and then the 15 minute ferry ride. So plan that in your day for beach trip. I wish they were open later than 5:00 so folks could stay and enjoy the sun set as well.
