How are you all doing? We are at the end of the Puerto Rico series and I feel very similar to how I felt leaving PR, sad. BUT, I’m also really excited for future adventures and bringing you guys along with me (well, for the recap, hehe).
Okay, so we saved the visit to Old San Juan for our last full day. I’m not entirely sure why we did this. I think we assumed there wasn’t much to do or see.
Life Lesson : Do not make assumptions.
If you ever visit Old San Juan, two things : First, don’t be like us and go on the last day of your trip. Second, try a new restaurant everyday because there’s an abundance of good spots. Excuse me while I cry over all the good food we missed out on.
We did eat some yummy food in our short time though. If you’re a plantain lover like myself, the Mofongo is a must-have. Mashed plantains stuffed with meats of your choice and drizzled with saucy goodness. Yum! We had the best one at Punto de Vista.
Besides food, Old San Juan is just generally great to experience. The vibrantly colored houses that line the city’s streets make you feel like you’re at some kind of outdoor art gallery. We spent a few hours simply exploring and taking pictures.
We also visited two historical sites;Castillo San Felipe Del Morro (El Morro for short) and La Fortaleza. I can not even articulate to you all how stunning the views were. Oh right! I don’t have to, that’s what the pictures are for.
If you couldn’t already tell from the previous posts, we had a blast in Puerto Rico; and I hope I’ve made at least one of you want to visit. If I did and you’d like to know how we planned our trip, feel free to leave me a comment.
Thanks for reading!
