My Favorite Stops
Monthly Archives: June 2011
The locals call this beach in Fajardo The Wall. It’s where all the surfers hang out.
All the flowers and plants are from my mother-in-law’s garden.
Cash found this Flamboyant tree at Luquillo Beach
He couldn’t help himself.
As an avid rock climber, Cash couldn’t resist.
Huge fan of Aguaviva. Great ceviche – get the 3 sampler w/ the local fish. The jumbo shrimp yuca gnocchi is fantastic too.
Old San Juan. I’d like to like here!
Old San Juan
Cobblestone Street in Old San Juan
As soon as we walked in Barrachina we felt extremely welcome. The Pina Coladas were excellent!!
We stopped at the El Convento for a drink in their lovely courtyard. We stayed here with family years ago and LOVED it. The service is absolutely fantastic! Many quaint bars. The rooms are cleans and simple, but allow you to relish in their deep history dating back hundreds of years.
Originally a Carmelite convent built over three centuries ago, Hotel El Convento is now a boutique-style hotel located in the heart of Old San Juan.
Pasion por el Fogon in Fajardo
Go to this restaurant the first day you are in PR. Don’t miss their awesome Mango Sangria. You can’t get fresher seafood or more local flavor than here. If they’ve got it, order the whole, fried red snapper. Cash especially liked the Mofongo.
One thing I look forward to re-experiencing in PR is a very simple thing – but made a big impression on me…. the big fat Rattan furniture with bright, leafy upholstery and rounded strips of wood that curve and swoop in the most fanciful ways.
Somehow – it just says… RELAX ! Actually, it almost insists that you RELAX, preferably with a cool drink and delicious snack.
Rattan is usually associated with the Tropics, because that’s where you find the palms and cane that it’s made from. But really, it can fit just about anywhere… make your own “tropic”!
Use it In doors, or out or both! Ratan does just fine with some exposure to humidity and moisture, unlike wood.
So, maybe you have a corner of your bathroom that can become a little sanctuary seat, or even the smallest of balconies can become your fantasy Tree House! Endulge yourself in a Rattan loveseat or sofa – just for you – as your designated Book Nook… pile on poofy pillows, add a small table for your treats…
…and sail away with your favorite read!
