San Juan, Puerto Rico

Well, hello there! Thank you for taking the time to read my blog! After working in Reality TV for a few years as a Casting Producer, I finally got my lifestyle-themed blog up. I’m excited to make San Juan Puerto Rico my first travel blog post. I went a couple weeks ago and had a blast. I would describe San Juan as a blend of Latin Caribbean flavor with a touch of American influence. San Juan is also a fairly easy city to navigate, whether traveling solo or in a group. If you choose not to rent a car, there are buses that go directly into Old San Juan or in the swanky Isla Verde strip. We stayed at a hotel in Condado, which is central to everything! There’s also the beach, which you know I had to hit up!

Old San Juan is absolutely stunning! The distinctive pastel-colored buildings are certainly a visual treat!

I highly recommend comfortable shoes when exploring Old San Juan. The narrow, hilly, cobblestone streets are a beauty but your feet WILL hurt if you don’t wear the right shoes. You can also catch the trolley (at no cost), which runs frequently throughout Old San Juan. We did both. We walked AND we took the trolley 🙂

We also went to Museo de San Juan and checked out the Caribe exhibit, which was the only exhibit open that day.

We took the trolley to some of the historical sites in Old San Juan like El Morro and Fort San Cristobal.

If you’re looking for authentic Puerto Rican cuisine, I suggest getting it in Old San Juan or Rio Piedras. Condado is very touristy and the food tends to be very bland. Even the waiter at a restaurant I went to in Condado admitted this. I personally enjoy well-seasoned food and have a spicy palette. I went to some other places but it’s so much to cover. Puerto Rico, you were so much fun and I hope to see you again soon!
