From Fajardo: Icacos Deserted Island Catamaran & Picnic Cruise

1,009 reviews
Combining activities with lunch and drinks and transport can start to get pretty expensive in Puerto Rico when planning independently. This San Juan cruise saves you money by merging a catamaran cruise with lunch, local sangria, beach time, and even an optional upgrade for hotel pickup and drop-off.

One of the oldest churches on the Caribbean, Very well preserved with quite a big amount of original religious images from the Spain era.

I stopped here on a Sunday afternoon and sad to see no one was here. The charge is only $5.00 and I was given a 30 minute tour of all the carvings and art pieces along with great historical facts. The tour is free though please show your appreciation to the guide! This is a must if in this area of PR.

This extraordinary XVII Century Spanish architecture example church was built in 1609. Porta Coeli's style is northern Spanish Romanesque with rubble masonry and stucco surfaced walls and a beautiful wood truss roof, and it's among the oldest churches of the western hemisphere. In 1976 it was included in the U.S. National Register of Historic Places as "Convento de Porta Coeli".

This church has some interesting history and is located on the main square of San German. There is a fee to enter and the signs/explanations are all in Spanish. I would not recommend driving here solely for San German unless you are a very serious Puerto Rican history buff.

The church is simple in its construction but has great views over the square in San Germán, well with the walk up the steps. Great icons and paintings in the church.
