Photo Diary: Three New Yorkers in Puerto Rico
This is how we do it down in Puerto Rico.
– Luis Fonsi, “Despacito”
As you may or may not know, I recently got back from a week-long trip with my friends to Puerto Rico, La Isla del Encanto! We stayed at Luis’ Condominio San Tropez Airbnb in Carolina and also spent some time in Old San Juan.
Our trip consisted of multiple visits to the beach, a Casa Bacardi Rum tour, a trek through El Yunque National Forest, delicious food, and pretty cocktails.
Of course, I took way too many photos for this diary, so here’s a curation of the best ones, organized by day, beginning on August 16 and ending on August 22:
Day 1: Hitting the beach after landing in Puerto Rico
Day 2: Casa Bacardi & Raices Restaurant
Day 3: El Yunque & Pirilo Pizza Rustica
Day 4: Old San Juan’s Casa Blanca, Forts, Castles, La Rumba Cruise & More
Day 5: Museo de las Americas, Señor Paleta, Platos Restaurant, & More
Day 6: Ocean Park Beach & Solar Eclipse 2017
Day 7: Returning to New York
And now I’m back in NYC. Puerto Rico was wayyyy too much fun! I’ve never vacationed on an island before this, and boy do I finally understand why it’s such a popular spot. So relaxing and so much culture to explore.
The road rage on the island definitely needs to chill out. Other than that, my friends and I had an amazing adventure.
