Puerto Rico

Night of Saint John, Puerto Rico

Although the Night of Saint John is technically a Christian holiday, in Puerto Rico it has evolved into a night long beach party where you can dance around a campfire, eat chicken kibobs made fresh on the grill by beach vendors, and swim in the ocean...

Sirena Oceanfront Restaurant

Today, we started our afternoon with some wine and tapas on the balcony and then around sunset, made our way over to the Marriott Hotel, for a more serious meal at Sirena Restaurant. Sirena is one of our favorite restaurants on the island and we g...

Tomate Mexican Fusion (Isla Verde)

I wish I discovered this little gem three years ago when we first started staying on the island. Tomate Mexican Fusion is a smaller restaurant that can easily be lost in the mix; especially given that it sits along a main road with lots of other r...

Exploring Castillo San Felipe Del Morro

No trip to Puerto Rico would be complete without visiting Castillo San Felipe del Morro, one of Old San Juan's historical forts, dating back to the early 1500's. I love visiting El Morro because I always learn something new about Puerto Rico's his...

Cueva Ventana

Just a few years ago, Cueva Ventana was not yet a tourist hot spot. There was no fee to enter and no guide to help you navigate the guano lined tunnels of the cave, or to warn you to not get too close to the window's ledge, overlooking Arecibo Valley...

Fly a Kite in Old San Juan

There's a big grassy field located next to El Morro Fort in Old San Juan where a constant airflow blows off of the ocean. People of all ages gather here daily to see how high they can fly their kites! On weekends, there are easily hundreds of peop...

A day in Instagram photos: Old San Juan

Cobblestone streets, wrought iron gates, artistically foamed lattes, miles and miles of Caribbean Sea, a window to the world, gateways to the dead, a mourning statue, and a little bit of sunshine. These are just a few of the moments that caught my...

El Yunque National Rainforest

Even though I've been semi-living in Puerto Rico for the past couple of years, I've only recently begun exploring El Yunque National Rainforest. I'm kicking myself for not getting started sooner, because there is definitely a lot of ground to cover! ...

Barrachina in Old San Juan

Barrachina is a fun place to take a break during a day out in Old San Juan. There is an open air patio where you can get a cold sangria, or an ice cold pina colada, along with some traditional Puerto Rican food, like Mofongo, or the everything fried,...

Sailing Puerto Rico

Recently, I got to know Puerto Rico from an entirely new vantage point - from the front deck of a sailboat, thanks to Sailing Dreams! The day of our tour, we headed over to the Old San Juan Harbor and marina where we met Captain Judith at the pier...

Valentine’s Day 2016

Two years ago, the boo and I celebrated Valentine's Day at the Marriott in Condado where we enjoyed a memorable 3 course meal outside on the patio. While we dined on our caprese salad, surf & turf, and strawberry-chocolate mousse, we listened to ...

Touch Down in Puerto Rico!

All last week, I was reveling in the East Coast snow and the week before that, I was in awe while playing in the snow capped mountains of Utah. The contrast couldn't be any more stark as I trade in my snow boots for a swimsuit and snow for sand. &...
