Had a wonderful trip and just wanted to share some highlights and tips!
Tip #1- wear sunscreen and constantly reapply! Puerto Rico sun is no joke and we got burned badly by day 2! I’m back now and still peeling. Just be aware and be careful because it’s no fun to change plans because you’re in pain !
Tip #2- everything is slow in PR. Your sense of urgency does not matter to anyone else. It will take 2 hours to pick up your reserved rental car. It will take another 2 hours just to drop it off. Because the workers just May decide to close shop and take a break without telling anyone while there are 10 people waiting to catch a plane. No joke!
Tip #3- San Juan is relatively fancy - people dress up a bit. The other towns are casual.
Here was our overall itinerary and if you have any questions on specifics, please let me know. I learned a lot from reading this forum before the trip and hope I can do the same for those in the planning stage.
3 days before trip- took IDnow COVID test from Walgreens (reserved our spot 3 days in advance online). Got results in less than 2 hours. Filled out the travel forms (difficult website, only chrome browser worked) and took a pic of the QR code (did not print anything).
