Need some guidance with my Puerto Rican vacation!

Jump to last reply

Hi Everyone! I am planning my first weeklong trip to PR this upcoming fall and need some guidance from locals and/or experienced PR travelers.

My husband and I will be traveling to celebrate his return from a year overseas and a renewal of our wedding vows. We have very different travel tastes which is why this will be our first vacation together without children. He is the consummate beach bum, and I tend to hate the water unless its a nice clean pool. We both love the nightlife, dancing and bar scene and would like to incorporate that into our trip. Im an avid photobug and want to walk away with tons of pictures. Im also a history buff, so a little of the touristy scene is a must. We are planning to hit Vieques at the end of our week to visit the Bio Bay ( it coincides nicelt with the right moon phase) and I figure this will be the best place to accommodate my husband's love of the beach ( and where I can conquer some of my water issues). This is also where I thought we should renew our vows.

Here are some questions:

While on the island of PR, we want to blend...do what the locals do...so where is a good place to stay? WE would also like to head inland and see the rainforest and hike, but again, we want the version that takes us off the beaten track. We don't mind driving, our Spanish is decent and we like adventure. we are not opposed to spend several nights in different locations Suggest away!

Once we get to Vieques, Id like recommendations on what little towns are best to stay in...we want to walk to place, eat local, shop local. Of course we would love secluded, but aren't opposed to city center.

The biggest goal is to have fun, experience the local flavor and be together. Any help or suggestions would be wonderful!
