Any suggestions for this sample itinerary?

Ok ,This is what I came up with so far. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. We are staying at the Caribe Hilton. One child in tow, 11 years old.

Day 1: arrive 3pm. Dinner: Parrot Club
Day 2: Arrive early to Camuy caves, the Arecibo Telescope, back to SJ
Day 3: Drive to El Yunque. Luquillo for the second half of the day. Late Dinner: Mortons.
Day 4: Chu-chu train to Ponce?
Day 5: Culebra day trip, snorkel/dive. Dinner
Day 6: lounge by the pool or meander OSJ??? Dinner: Ajili Mojili
Day 7: depart PR flight 3:10 pm

What to squeeze in on the first day? Anything doable on the last day???

One must do is a dive trip. Should we take the ferry to Culebra, or is there a dive company that will pick us up and take us over?

I really like historical architecture, but Should I really plan on spending a whole day in OSJ?

Hubby doesn't like it when I plan too much, so I don't want to spend the whole trip sightseeing, though that's exactly what it seems like I'm planning. He'd rather have a tour company do the driving, any suggestions here?

Please let me know if I'm trying to do too much, I have a feeling I am.

Where is the most convenient place to stick in a bioluminescent experience? Vieques, Parguera???

Also, gotta start packing soon, any suggestions on what not to forget(besides the obvious)?

Thanks in advance to all the help out there on this site, its been awesome!

OK... I'll pause now and take a breath!

Day 1, 2, and 3 are okay.
Day 4 - No train service in PR nor is there bus service. Only way to go is using a rental car or taking a Publico. This is a van that follows a route but picks up and discharges people along the way.
Day 5 - Culebra will not work unless you stay overnight. Monday to Friday the ferry leaves at 9 AM . You would have to return on the 11:30 AM ferry. Weekends the ferry leaves at 9 AM and you can return on the 4:30 pM ferry. Can't stay for dinner.

There's a nice bio-bay in the Fajardo area. You could do that after El Yunque and save Mortons for another night.

plan a trip to Vieques, The Bio Bay here is the Best! The difference between 500,000 pts. and Vieques's mesquito Bay @ 750,000pts. is Huge! I do tours with Aqua Frenzy kayaks Vieques..Give us a call to help plan a trip 787-741-0913, visit beautiful Vieques , and see one of the TRUE WONDERS OF THE WORLD!
