One of the largest Caribbean islands and part of U.S, this place has much to offer. Our four day stay was not long enough to cover all that this island has to offer, but it was a good introduction nevertheless. We stayed for a day at Wyndham Grand Rio Mar and 3 days at Hyatt Place.

Luquillo Beach

Wyndham Rio Mar is in a more tropical region with fewer people. There are a few excellent beaches here. Luquillo beach is probably one of the best in Puerto Rico.No crowds, great breeze and super soft sand meant we spent a few hours lazing around.

San Juan National Historic Site, El Moro

There are two main forts: El Morro and San Cristobal. El Moro is more scenic and smaller of the two.

San Juan National Historic Site, San Cristobal

San Cristobal is the larger fort and has a proper fort feel to it.

Old San Juan

Old San Juan town is best explored on foot and the shuttles which run around every 20 mins or so.

Thing which strikes on first sight is the old spanish era houses with vivid colors!

The roads are tiles and have a slight blue tinge to them.The walk amongst these streets made us feel at home! truly memorable.

Puerto Rican Food!

Food is amazing and authentic.Plantain Burritos are a must have.

Chocolates and Coffee shops are abound and we went to Casa Cortes Choco bar twice (on different days). Great chocolate snacks and coffee!

There are some good restaurants in Luquillo Beach area(close to main highway).

Wyndham Grand Rio Mar Beach Resort

In the evening we relaxed at our Ocean view resort room at Wyndham. It was super huge (1600Sq Feet) with views on three sides!

Dinner was decent but breakfast was pretty good!.After 4 nights at San Juan we headed to the laid back St. John, a short plane ride away.
