It's been a really, really long winter for most of the country. We had little bits of snow in our yard in shady areas until earlier this week. We had a snow and ice storm just 2 weeks ago! To say that I've spent a bit of time daydreaming about a getaway to someplace tropical is an understatement. One place I'd love to go is Puerto Rico. By that I mean I would gladly pack bags and head to the airport in an hour if someone asked me to (just saying, so if anyone wants me to…). +
Why Puerto Rico? Well, it's close. It is a 5-star vacation destination filled with world-class attractions. Whether you’re a golfer, foodie, the adventure type, or a beach (rum) bum, Puerto Rico has everything that you want in a nice relaxing vacation. Just hop on a plane and go! It's so close that it's got the tropical paradise feel without the super long journey to get there…no need for a passport or currency exchange from the USA.
Here are some things to do in Puerto Rico:
Puerto Rico Tourism recently partnered with popular travel review site Trip Advisor to transform real traveler 5-star reviews into stunningly beautiful short films narrated by Puerto Rican stars. These reviews will make you want to See Puerto Rico and live your own 5-star vacation story in Puerto Rico. They certainly have made me want to go even more. Just looking at pictures has me starting to relax.
I'll need a week to 10 days for my trip, of course. I'll need a few days to just chill on the beach. But then, I may want to visit a few beaches. Puerto Rico has 270 miles of coastline and featured in the Top 10 beaches from Travel Channel — including Flamenco Beach in Culebra, often cited as one of the best beaches in the world. We'll definitely do some snorkeling- we LOVE to explore places underwater as well as on land!
I am not sure I'm brave enough but I know my husband and most of our friends and family would be wanting to do some ziplining adventures. Can you even imagine soaring above these gorgeous waters and beaches?
After so much exploration and adventure, we might need another kind of day, so I think we'd need to check out some of the historical features Puerto Rico has to offer.
We rarely go far from home without my husband wanting to do some kind of fishing. We will need at least an afternoon out on the water.
