Puerto Rico: Day 8…

Yesterday Stuart and I joined Andrew, Kevin, and Matty for a whistle stop tour of the whole of the island of Puerto Rico.   

12 hours. 300 miles. Countless stops. Great fun but exhausting!   

Old towns, beaches, churches, narrowest houses, plazas, mayors’s offices, piña coladas, cruise ships, lighthouses, pink salt flats, peninsulars, the Guajataca sugar train tunnel, castles, mountains, oil refineries, the highest statue in the western hemisphere, the Bacardi distillery, a magnetic beach, turtle eggs sites, black sand, a Puerto Rican lunch, some spectacular views of the coast line, surfers’ beaches, fountains, a mansion on a hill, and a bright red fire station. Phew!  

We started at Playita del Condado then took in San Juan, Dorado, Barceloneta, Arecibo, Cataño, Hatillo, Isabela, Rincon, Cabo Rojo, and of course Ponce.   We had to go to Ponce!

If you have time is limited in Puerto Rico this is the tour for you!
