Puerto Rico Travels
We don’t usually go out of the country for vacations or trips but when we got an email from a travel agency we used in the past offering us a vacation package half off we were ecstatic. It turns out that when they start new vacation packages they contact people to try it out before they start selling it. That way if they find that a cruise line or hotel they have chosen for their customers is a disappointment they get to hear about it before charging their customers. We got lucky when they picked us, and when we found out we would be flying to Puerto Rico we leaped at the chance!
Now the package had it set up so that we could fly in and stay at the Conrad San Juan Condado Plaza… say that five times fast. It’s the beautiful set of hotels on the corner of the island. It overlooks these great beaches and beautiful rock-filled waters. We were absolutely amazed by our accommodations. The room was massive with separate room to relax in, something you don’t see in most hotels.
The beaches in Puerto Rico are fantastic, I mean just gorgeous. White sand as far as the eye can see and crystal clear water with this slight bluish hue that makes you just want to take pictures. We even decided to snorkel there; there is a lot of fish out by the rocks, and the reefs are awesome. The restaurants around the area are beyond this world, I mean we had a hard time going to more than one just because we weren’t sure we would get the awesome food at other places. Then again by the end of the trip we never had a meal that average, they were all fantastic.
The shopping in the area is apparently really good to. I personally never went shopping but my wife filled a suitcase to the max on the way back so it has to be great! We really liked this area of Puerto Rico, but everyone we met there said the whole island is pretty much the same!
