So the year began with a vacation to Puerto Rico. We were originally going to leave on Thursday the 17th of January but the flights started filling up. I was able to talk to the woman we were renting the condo from and she was able to let us come few days early so we arrived Tuesday evening instead. The place we rented was called Casa Valeriana in Luquillo. I found it on Trip Advisor. It was a really great place to stay very private and in a gated community and about 5 minutes from the Luquillo Beach. Below are some pictures of where we stayed.
The owner was very nice because we flew in around 10:30 pm and by the time we got the car rental and drove over there it was almost midnight. She waited for us and gave us a quick tour and all we needed to enjoy our stay.
The next day we went to Old San Juan. I had not been there since I was 15. Actually, I hadn’t been to Puerto Rico since I was 15 either. The first thing we did was eat. We went to El Jibarito it is a small place and the menu’s are handwritten but the food was really good and not very expensive. We then toured the town. This guy below was a decoration in El Jibarito.
I love the colors of the houses in Old San Juan.
We then headed in the direction of the Fort El Morro.
I didn’t know that the City of San Juan had so many cats but there were many of them lounging around.
We didn’t stay to late in the city and left before 7 and our parking was not even 2 dollars it was great. No bull. Speaking of bull here’s a picture of my husband and my sister with a bull.
Puerto Rico is port for cruise ships. As we were driving by I quickly snapped this picture of one of the ships.
We went to El Yunque the Rainforest on our second day there I will post those pictures shortly.
