Here’s a countdown with links for my top 10 things to do in Puerto Rico!  Enjoy :)

  • Number 10: Go for a hike in El Yunque National park – This is the only subtropical rainvforest in the US (besides Hawaii) and is filled with so much bio diversity. Make sure you spot the ylang ylang tree to smell the beautiful flowers used in some of the best perfumes. http://ecotourspuertorico.com/el-yunq…
  • Number 9: Have lunch in La Placita at Chef Jose Enrique’s restaurant. Jose Enrique is an award winning chef who uses his master culinary skills to enrich traditional Puerto Rican dishes. http://www.joseenriquepr.com/
  • Number 8: Shop in el Mercado in La Placita – Be sure to stop by and talk to Hector Ruiz Housler, who sells herbs and concoctions used to treat all sorts of ailments.
  • Number 7: Have a cafecito at Café Cuatro Sombras – Located in Old San Juan and has the richest, most authentic Puerto Rican coffee in town. http://cuatrosombras.com/
  • Number 6: Visit Casa Cortés – Indulge your senses in fine chocolate and fine art here. Try their chocolate and cheese snack and sample one of their delicious chocolate beverages. http://www.casacortespr.com/
  • Number 5: Go to Piñones for authentic Puerto Rican street food – Try the fresh oysters, clams and all of the delicious fried food offered here. Be sure to pass by the cultural center to learn the history of this important Puerto Rican neighborhood.
  • Number 4: Spend an afternoon in the Botanical Gardens – Take a tour and smell the cinnamon and bay rum trees and if you’re lucky, you just might spot a coqui. http://sanjuanpuertorico.com/san-juan…
  • Number 3: Stay on Condado Beach. I love the San Juan Marriott Resort and Casino. It’s a quick drive from the airport, has breathtaking views, and has amazing service. http://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel…
  • Number 2: Have a Bioluminescence experience – Puerto Rico has three Bioluminescent bays which contain millions of micro-organisms, called “dinoflagellates”, that glow fluorescent in the dark when agitated. http://ecotourspuertorico.com/bio-lag…
  • Number 1: Explore the beaches. Puerto Rico is blessed with beautiful beaches around the entire island. With warm Caribbean water and happy vacationers relaxing with their good vibes, a visit to the beach is an absolute must. My top picks are Condado, Luquillo, Dorado and Bahia Beach.
