Our visit to Peurto Rico

Sam and I went to Peurto Rico for a small break in early September, which was a nice way to end our summer. It was a fun and interesting experience. Puerto Rico is unique in that people speak Spanish and have a Latin culture, but the island is dotted with multiple Walmarts and other major food chains. If everyone in America spoke Spanish and drove a bit crazily, it would be like Peurto Rico. Like every place, there are pros and cons. The plus point of Peurto Rico is that there are plenty of things to do and see. However, the place is very expensive. I was also not very pleased with the selection of food there. I found the food to be a bit bland with very little variety. Fortunately, there are some tropical fruits like mangoes that kept us alive.

Our favorite fruit shop, we went there almost every day to buy mangoes of course!

Houses are colorful, just the way I like it.

Puerto Rican diet consists of rice, beans and some sort of meat and fried plantains. Unfortunately, I was not a big fan of this food.

There are plenty of historical sites to visit near old San Juan. Amazing greenery, blue ocean and stone wall gives a good texture for photos. This is at Castillo de San Cristobal.

One thing you will definitely not miss is these friendly iguanas.

Amazing views give plenty of opportunities for photo ops with my very handsome husband.

At El Yunque rainforest you will see four different species of lizards. They are ubiquitous!

Learned to surf a bit. Oh boy! it is a hard work.

One day, we went to Culebra beach. It was one of the nicest beach I have seen for sure. It was a bit of a pain to get there, but was totally worth it.

 

Coconut water is a must to beat that heat.

Bye Bye Puerto Rico. It was nice visiting you!
