Calling all Puerto Rico experts....last minute planning of the WHOLE trip!

Jump to last reply

Hi.. I am trying to plan a last minute 5-night Puerto Rico vacation for a family with 2 kids (8 year old boy and 2 year old girl). Would love to finalize air tickets etc today since it is for christmas this year. Since I am short on time, I am turning to you all for expert advice. We would love to do some beach, some history, some kiddie stuff and bioluminescence bay is a must. Overall we want to have a decent vacation without breaking the bank (i.e. not too chic or shabby for that matter). So, the basic questions I have are:

1. what places do we HAVE to visit? Some really nice places to visit? What kind of itinerary should I plan for? I am not much into theme parks/ shopping unless it is something very unique.

2. What are the travel times like in going from one part to another? Can we stay in 1 hotel for the whole trip and go back and forth (considering we have a toddler with us too)? Or shouldl we hop hotels? Given questions 1 & 2, which part of Puerto Rico would you stay in if you were going to stay in 1 place for the whole vacation.

3. Best way to go from place to place? Rent a car? Ferry? cab? public transport? what kind of fares to expect? specially interested in bioluminescence bay. Thoughts? If you drive around, how easy is it find parking?

4. Are there some websites that specialize in puerto rico vacation packages?

5. Would you do it all yourself/hire a tour guide in some places/whole trip?Are the tour guides reasonably priced?

6. Any parts to stay away from?

7. Any hotel/vacation rental recommendations?

Lastly, thanks for reading and answering whatever you are able to. I have wanted to go to Puerto Rico for a LONG time.
