One of my all time favorite places to visit is Puerto Rico, specifically Fajardo. Puerto Rico is one of the most gorgeous places I have ever been, and somewhere I travel to time and time again. It is a territory of the US, so you don’t need a passport to go. Making it a fast, simple, getaway.
1. One thing I suggest, is to go visit El Yunque National Forest. Whether you are going for a hike, lunch, or just to take in the view, you will not be disappointed. When I went, I even went swimming in a waterfall! If you decide to take a visit to El Yunque, make sure to bring walking shoes and comfortable clothing. There are many uneven rocks and small pathways.
2. Another thing I recommend you do is to go kayaking. This was a very enjoyable experience. The water was warm and low tide so there is nothing to worry about. You can sit two to three people per kayak and you are then sent on your way to paddle wherever you choose.
3. A restaurant that I propose to you is called La Estación. It is made from an old gas station. This is one of the most popular restaurants in the area and is always very busy! So make sure to plan ahead and make a reservation. The menu is very big and all the choices are delicious.
4. Lastly, my overall favorite thing to do in Puerto Rico is visit Palomino Island. It is a closed off, private island that is absolutely stunning. The water is crystal clear blue and the sand is super soft. There are various activities on the island such as horseback riding, hiking, water sports, and of course laying on the beach. However, make sure to be careful because lots of iguanas are inhabited on the island.
As you can see, there is plenty to do on a visit to Fajardo. The weather is always sunny and warm so it will be pleasant no matter when you decide to go. I guarantee you will have an amazing time.
