few hours for a layover

Hi-

I'll be flying to Tortola from Miami. As part of the flight, I have a layover in San Juan. I've never visited San Juan before, so I was thinking about taking an earlier flight in and getting out to see the city for 3-4 hours before my flight out. I know this won't do San Juan/Puerto Rico justice, but it's better than nothing, right?

Therefore, I wanted to ask if it would make sense to explore on my own, hire a tour guide/driver, or just stay put in the airport. Any thoughts and/or…

Rincon begining surfer

Hi,
I'm 45 years old and will be in Rincon for a week. I want to learn how to surf and of course I want to stay out of the way of the experienced guys. What is the best beach to begin on? I want to rent a board for 6 days but not spend as much as a new board would cost. Can anyone help me out with some advice?
thanks

The Secret and Cheap way to the Ferry Terminal in Fajardo, for Vieques and Culebra!

Hello Everybody! As ya'll should really already know, Vieques Puerto Rico is an amazing place with a lot to offer. The problem is it's hard to get to for many travelers. It's often expensive and time consuming to rent a car and leave it while paying not to use it, paying for a flight, or paying seventy five bucks each way for the cab.

So here's how to get to Vieques from San Juan and not break yer budget ( I hope you stay at Island Time Hostel while in San Juan, and I think Travelers World…

Vieques: where to stay with snorkeling off the beach?

Hey everyone,

We're headed to Puerto Rico over Thanksgiving week and are leaning towards spending a few days on Vieques, or possibly Culebra.

Are there any great places to stay on the beach where there's decent snorkeling right there? Bonus points if there are hammocks or other comfy, shady spots to relax, read a book, and listen to the waves.

Definitely up for doing some trips out to better snorkeling beaches, but having it as an option right where we're staying is a huge bonus.

Budget is…

Where to stay in Puerto Rico with an almost 2 year old

Hi guys,

We'd like to stay in a 2 bedroom place (my in-laws are coming as well). And I wanted to know what the best area and or hotel is to stay in in PR if we're going with our 20 month old baby. We want her to have fun as we dont vacation often but also dont want to end up spending more than $400/night for a 2 bedroom. There looks to be a bunch of air BnB places in Rio Mar. Thoughts on staying there? We'll be there for 10 days over xmas and nye.

Thanks so much guys..

4-Day Itinerary Dilemma - biobays

My wife and I went to Puerto Rico for a week in 2006 which included a trip to Vieques' biobay. It was probably the most amazing experience I've had while traveling. We're going back to PR for 5 nights, 4 days in October and plan to visit San Juan, El Yunque, and spend one night on Vieques. However, I just found out that while kayaking in Vieques' biobay still happens, swimming is prohibited since an August 2011 shark attack. Can one swim in the biobays at La Parguera and Laguna Grande (Fajardo)?…
