Puerto Rico | Part  2


It’s hard to believe that this trip–which we all had been looking forward to for months–is over!  As I mentioned in Part One, we had a year of planning for this Caribbean vacation. That amount of time was a big help with four families. We SAW a lot and we DID a lot, but we had lots of relaxing time too!

Scheduling was key.  Our adventures were booked in advance and scattered every other day, giving us parents and the kids time to unwind from the day before.  The temperature averaged around a humid 83 degrees with a very light breeze. Very hot compared to home so it took a lot out of you without you realizing it.

Our villa was in a great town called Aguadilla, located on the northwest side of Puerto Rico. We found it to be convenient spot, close to the main highway and no more than an hour and half drive to the various activity locations.

Enjoy these iPhone pictures (gathered from among the group) from a few of our fun-filled days of going to the beach, horseback riding, checking out ruins, hiking, zip lining and sightseeing in Old San Juan.

It was crazy to see this Iguana swimming across the top of the water.

A local guy jumped into the water and brought it onto the beach. It was huge!

The old pier’s are great for jumping off into the clear blue water.

We had a beautiful day to go horseback riding along miles of secluded beaches and tropical forest.

Tropical Trail Rides is a must when visiting Aguadilla.
