  • Puerto Rico A week in Puerto Rico for a getaway :) Posted by sipwriterepeat in Wine. Writing. Wanderlust. | Mar 20, 2005
  • 21st and Final Evening Jan 7thThere was no sleeping through this morning’s 6.4 magnitude earthquake that struck the south side of the island at approx. 4:30AM. We were on the north side of PR, 50 miles from the epicenter, still in El Hotelito on Posted by Follow Carol in Puerto Rico Holidays | Jan 7, 2020
  • 20th Evening - Jan 6thI guess most everyone has read that this morning PR had another earthquake. This one was newsworthy because it caused some power outages and the collapse of a natural stone arch (Punta Ventana) on the southside, near the epicenter.

  • 19th Afternoon Jan 5As I write this, I am sitting on the top of a “mountain” looking out over a couple of miles of rainforest and the Atlantic in the distance. (note: the elevation is 1000 feet, which qualifies as a mountain Posted by Follow Carol in Puerto Rico Holidays | Jan 5, 2020
  • 18th Afternoon - Jan 4It’s not that I have been all that busy, far from it – it’s mostly that the days just seem to come and go here. It’s a very tranquil existence. So here we are, it’s now Saturday, Jan Posted by Follow Carol in Puerto Rico Holidays | Jan 4, 2020
  • 16th Morning - Jan 2I was beginning to write about how lucky we are – those of us who live in the states (rather than in a territory). It’s common to run into non-functional, non-maintained stuff here. Like restaurant bathrooms with toilets Posted by Follow Carol in Puerto Rico Holidays | Jan 2, 2020
  • 14th Afternoon 12/31New Year’s Eve! Can you believe it? You kind of have to put up with some craziness when you stay in a struggling country. Oh wait. . .this is part of MY country! I don’t get it, then Posted by Follow Carol in Puerto Rico Holidays | Dec 31, 2019
  • 13th Afternoon 12/30I have just planted a decidedly horrible, 55 year old earworm in your brain. If it makes you feel any better, it's in mine too. damn. We have checked in to the Hotel Parador Maunacaribe in Maunabo, PR. Posted by Follow Carol in Puerto Rico Holidays | Dec 30, 2019
  • 12th Afternoon 12/29Today is officially the beginning of the 2nd half of this adventure. Isn’t it awful how we cannot seem to avoid measuring time, especially fun time? And it’s never a positive thing. Can’t you hear the other Posted by Follow Carol in Puerto Rico Holidays | Dec 29, 2019
  • 11th Afternoon 12/28So here we are at the HFI. Not a lot to say about it except that when you have a great big parent corporation covering your ass, it’s easy to keep up appearances, even in Ponce. [Unless you Posted by Follow Carol in Puerto Rico Holidays | Dec 28, 2019
  • 10th Evening 12/27Last night I wrote of Ponce, “Maybe I’ll like it even better” (than Combate Beach) – well THAT didn’t happen. We had booked three nights here, thinking that it is a big town (the 2nd largest after San Juan) Posted by Follow Carol in Puerto Rico Holidays | Dec 28, 2019
  • 9th EveningAhhh. . . .the day after. I am always delighted when December 26th finally gets here. This year it didn't really matter, other than that all of the bars and restaurants are open again. This morning we Posted by Follow Carol in Puerto Rico Holidays | Dec 26, 2019
  • 8th Evening ChristmasThis was (no doubt) one of the best, and one of the most interesting Christmas Days I have ever spent. I really wanted to spend a couple of hours down on the beach again, but it has been overcast Posted by Follow Carol in Puerto Rico Holidays | Dec 25, 2019
  • 7th Evening: Christmas EveHappy Christmas Eve – or “Feliz Nochebuena” to all! Such an unorthodox day today! Of course, since I am not Christian, almost anything I do would be unorthodox, technically. The day started with a bagel in the hotel dining room Posted by Follow Carol in Puerto Rico Holidays | Dec 24, 2019
  • 6th Evening 12/23First, I want to wish Kay a Happy Birthday! So, Happy Birthday Kay! Hope you had a fun day. Darnell and I spent Festivus morning walking along a long deserted beach just south of Rincon. I may not Posted by Follow Carol in Puerto Rico Holidays | Dec 23, 2019
  • 5th Afternoon 12/22First – Happy Birthday to Michael (who had better be reading this or I have just wasted keystrokes!) After leaving Arecibo, our drive yesterday was full of incredible beaches. We stayed as close to the coast as was possible, stopping Posted by Follow Carol in Puerto Rico Holidays | Dec 22, 2019
  • 4th Morning (Saturday 12/21)This morning we find ourselves drinking bad coffee in the breakfast room of the Arecibo Inn, a very unexceptional Motel 6 type place. The “breakfast room” doubles as a pizza parlor by night. We are not disappointed, though Posted by Follow Carol in Puerto Rico Holidays | Dec 21, 2019
  • 2nd AfternoonI feel a bit shamed by something I wrote earlier. I sounded like the heartless, hating, narcissistic mob-boss of an asshole who currently inhabits the “Casa Blanca”. I sounded like, “don’t worry about Puerto Rico. . .they’re fine. Posted by Follow Carol in Puerto Rico Holidays | Dec 20, 2019
  • 2nd MorningCoffee and toast at the long, heavy antique table in the formal Spanish dining room of the fortress-like mansion that is the Villa Herencia Hotel. Wifi is down right now or I would do some research on what this Posted by Follow Carol in Puerto Rico Holidays | Dec 19, 2019
  • San Juan - Day 9 Sunday 12/15San Juan is the capital and most populated municipality in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, an unincorporated territory of the United States. The city was founded by Spanish colonists in 1521, who called it Ciudad de Puerto Rico ("Rich Posted by Cybercsp in Serenity Cruise - Caribbean | Dec 15, 2019
  • San Juan - Day 8 Saturday 12/14We woke to pouring rain, which mercifully ended prior to disembarkation. We were off the ship a bit after 9 AM, and at the Caribe Hilton within a half hour. [img=https://photos.travellerspo Posted by Cybercsp in Serenity Cruise - Caribbean | Dec 14, 2019
  • San Juan Want to feel like a kid again, eat great food, hike through a rain forest, soak up the sun, relax? Visit Puerto Rico. I can go on and on about how Puerto Rico is a great place to visit because Posted by 123Joanne in Travel the World | Dec 7, 2019
  • The Many Facets of El MoroSaturday 22 January 2011 I woke up at 6 without the alarm and got dressed and went out on deck about 6:40 After I got up to deck 5, I realized that I'd used the camera a LOT yesterday and might Posted by greatgrandmaR in 2011 B2B on Enchantment & Key West trip | Jan 22, 2011
  • Staying Aboard Again in San Juan We pulled into San Juan before dawn on the morning of the 19th, and we had to go through security (Immigration) after having been at St. Kitts just like we did in St. Thomas after we 'visited' the Bahamas.
