No, I’m not a travel agent, but I have been around, so I don’t mind giving people travel advice. My advice right now is that you should visit San Juan, Puerto Rico. Here are 3 reasons why.
1. It’s Beautiful
San Juan happens to be one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been to. It’s a city of almost 2.5 million people, still, you can drive 30 minutes away and find yourself alone on a beach. I was only there for a few days and I was working the whole time, so I can’t give you many recommendations for things to do but Trip Advisor has a great post on San Juan.
I’ve also written about San Juan’s International Airport.
2. Great Food
Sorry, I can’t even name the restaurants that we went to. You see, there aren’t just a handful of places to eat, there’s great food all over the island. You can’t go wrong. You can just walk into a place that looks local and order food. You won’t regret it. Do me a favor, while you’re there, can you please skip out on the chain restaurants and eat some local food. Eat some platano, it does a body good.
3. Great People
Hey, this is Latin America, what do you expect? You can fly in for the weekend and be surrounded with some of the friendliest people you’ll ever meet. Or maybe I was just spoiled since I spent the weekend with Operation Christmas Child Connect Volunteers. Leave your passport at home but bring your Spanish. You won’t need it at the hotels or many of the restaurants, but if you want to hit the local places, it’ll come in handy.
Visit San Juan, Puerto Rico and tell me how it went!
