Puerto Rico Honermoon Itinerary Help Please :)

Jump to last reply

Hello all-

I am in the process of planning our honeymoon for June 2013 to Puerto Rico. I've done some research and read a few blogs from past travelers.

A little but about us-we are in our late twenties and would like a relaxing and romantic honeymoon with a few days of fun and excitement!

This is what I've come up with so far-

The first couple of days stay in Vieques at Hacienda Tamarindo. We plan on getting a rental car-is this easy to drive to from the airport?

After that we'll stay in a condo rented from vrbo and then the last few days at the Gallery Inn in Old San Juan.


Any recommendations for what to see/eat/do at those 3 spots? And we would like to go out for drinks and dancing one night-what is the best place for that?

For excursions we would really like to do a zipline, dinner cruise, and hike.

I appreciate any advice or suggesstions...thank you in advance!

    Hi.

    We have family in San Juan and have visited them a few times in the last few years. Last summer we spent 4 nights on Vieques. It is easy to drive to Hacienda Tamarindo from the airport. Just make sure to reserve a car ahead of time. A Jeep would work best for exploring the island.

    We had three kids with us and spent our time exploring the beaches all over the island. We found the ones in the SE part of the island to be the most scenic and swimmer-friendly. The bio-bay tour is a must do! It will definitely fulfill your requirement for fun and excitement. Google it for details. One of the coolest experiences of my life, although I did enjoy the one on the main island near Fajardo a little more. You'll find a few little restaurants and barefoot bars on the main strip (Malecon) in Esperanza. You'll probably have time to try them all. Don't miss the man who makes paella on Thursdays? at a little restaurant/bar on the Malecon. Sorry can't be more exact. Also, El Quenepo at the end of the strip was very nice and will fulfill the romance requirement. One note of caution, the wild horses on the island bite! We saw a tourist get bit by one when she tried to pet it.

    In San Juan we like Kassalta (bakery/lunch spot) and Bebos for good Dominican/Puerto Rican food. We always eat lunch at the little bakeries that can be found all over the island. They offer all types of Cuban-style sandwiches and pastries. Can't remember the names of other places. Maybe try Yelp or Chowhound. Have you ever had mfongo? If you like plantains, give it a try!

    As for sightseeing, El Morro in Old San Juan is a must-see and just walking around Old San Juan is a lovely way to spend an afternoon or two. You can drive out to El Yunque to hike and they do have ziplining someplace on the island. The kids did it with their aunt. Maybe Google again. Not sure about the dancing/drinking scene as we always have the kids with us. I believe the piña colada was invented on the island and the Hilton hotel and another restaurant in Old San Juan each claim to have been the first to serve it. We tried the Hilton's version and can recommend it!

    Hope that helps! If I can remember anything else I'll post it!
