Zika Puerto Rico

By |May 30th, 2016|

The most common question lately we’ve been getting is about the zika Puerto Rico “situation” and whether or not it’s safe to travel to the island with your loved ones.  We decided to write an article about this topic because much of the “misinformation” and perspectives and false images being portrayed to the world (mostly the United States) that Puerto Rico is almost like a 3rd world country and to be avoided at all costs – and that couldn’t be further from the truth in our estimation.  Allow us to elaborate and we hope that you genuinely make the best and safest decision for your travels to our beautiful island.

First and foremost, while it is true that Puerto Rico is all over the news now for a slowing economy and the government defaulting on the billions of dollars they owe Wall Street (which essentially own the mass media corporations in the U.S. – so connect […]

Playa Buye Puerto Rico

By |May 18th, 2016|

Beautiful Blue Waters In SW Coast
Playa Buyé Puerto Rico is also one of the prettiest beaches on the west coast of Puerto Rico. Getting here is a bit of an adventure, however just follow the directions and look for the signs that point towards Playa Buyé. Parking is another mystery sometimes, but hopefully you’ll find the parking at the hotel available and pay the $3 to get in. If not, find a spot outside the gates and make your way in.  This is a pretty short blog post only because sometimes words don’t or shouldn’t describe a place – so you should see it and take it in for yourself if you happen to be traveling near this part of Puerto Rico.  It’s definitely one of our top 5 favorite places in the island.

The locals of Puerto Rico come to this beach as its not “touristy” at all. Keep in mind that on busy holidays […]

Cabo Rojo Puerto Rico

By |May 10th, 2016|

The longest and furthest trip you can possibly take when traveling to Puerto Rico but with a tremendous pay-off is to visit Cabo Rojo Puerto Rico – specifically Playa Sucia.

The drive down 52 South is in our opinion one of the nicest and most scenic drives you can take in Puerto Rico.

Taíno History Puerto Rico

By |May 2nd, 2016|

First and foremost I’m not a “history expert.” I have many great friends that come to mind that can occupy this space much better than me. But I have read the history. I’ve researched the stories. I’ve imagined what it must have been like to be “on the other side of history.”

 

The New Page

By |October 8th, 2015|

So just like that our lives have a new page and a new chapter.  We have welcomed Dylan Andres Diaz into the world (the world of Puerto Rico :) on September 7th, 2015.

The last page of the 700 page travel guide was learning the fact we were having a baby.  We are happy to announce he has entered our world and that we are ready to officially now launch our project onto the world.

Tinajas Puerto Rico

By |May 1st, 2015|

Rio Tinajas is more of a place that’s “off the beaten path” – located south of Fajardo – this is a fun time if you want to hike, explore, jump off ropes & waterfalls and slide down a natural water slide.  In terms of her enchanting nature, Puerto Rico…en realidad…lo hace mejor. Puerto Rico does it better. Tinajas Puerto Rico is a perfect example of this. See, there are tons of places in Hawaii that have a place with a cool little waterfalls and a ropes where you can jump off of and get that “thrill!” However, hands down, Tinajas Puerto Rico tops that by far.

This enchanting jewel is located in the backyard of this really nice older man’s backyard. Don’t worry. You’re not trespassing. In fact he’s quite cheerful and allows you to park in his home. He usually charges about $2 to park, but the times we’ve gone we give him about $7-$10 […]

Puerto Rico Travel Guide

By |April 25th, 2015|

This Puerto Rico travel guide has been a labor of love and passion and it is finally finished!  After traveling the island beginning in 2010, I began realizing that I had more photos, videos, and information about some cool travel spots in the short span of two years.  In 2012, I set a goal to finish this book no matter how long it took me.  Mission accomplished.  Book is done, and boy oh boy does it have a surprise ending (hey, at least for me as the creative influence behind this project).  Along the way I also became a concierge at one of the best hotels of San Juan.  Funny how when you set a goal, life does lead you where you need to go to make the connections you need to make, to be of service to others.  I absolutely love what I’ve accomplished, and can’t wait to share it with the world!

Pinones Puerto Rico

By |April 20th, 2015|

Driving into Pińones you are instantly transported back in time to another era – almost as if the days of an iPad, high-end technology, and our fast paced lives have yet to come into existence.  The arresting contrast of arriving here presents the abrupt transition of culture from San Juan. It´s the perfect getaway and if you´re traveling from other parts of the world you will know this is when you´ve arrived to travel in Puerto Rico.

The two worlds are linked by Punta Cangrejos (Crab Point) a small bridge on PR-187. Once you cross over this bridge, the tourist traps become a distant memory and you are now well on your way to exploring the best of this island.
As you drive along PR-187, this is when you’re more than likely to experience the feeling of finally being on vacation and free en La Isla De Encanto.
