This is the closest I've been to a virgin beach with clear water, not touch by development. Sand is fine and white and the water is clear. You need a boat to get to it, but if you can find one, definitely do not miss...More

I know someone who lives in PR. They will not have power for at least 2 more months. I don't know anyone traveling at the moment.

Snorkeling is decent by the rocks to the right of the island. There are no bathrooms or anything else on the island. Bring chairs, umbrella and sun block. Enjoy!

You can just show up at Las Croabas and ask for a Captain. There is a minimum fee but not sure how much that minimum fee is. We paid about 30.00 a head.

We had a wonderful trip! (8 Replies)
We just got back from Puerto Rico! It was everything I expected and so much more. It was beautiful and the people were so friendly. I didn't meat one person that was rude or made me feel uneasy. We stayed at the Embassy Suites in Dorado. Great hotel. I was very happy with our choice specially since it has a seperate bedroom as we were traveling with our two sons 13 & 15. The couch was a little small for them so one ended up on the floor. The Dorado beach was very nice. I fell in...More

Which island to visit? (3 Replies)
My family of 4 will be staying in San Juan for 6 days towards the end of March. I want to take a day trip to one of the out islands and we have narrowed it down to Coffin Island or Icacos Island. If you were going to do this trip for the day, remember we have a rental car and are staying in San Juan. Which Island would you visit and why? We are looking for a day full of nothing but isolation on a beautiful island.

Well- I will give you some of my thoughts. For Coffin Island, unless you have a private boat, your choice is to go via the island Ventures boat on the weekend. You will be there with the group of people from the boat- could be up to 150 people or so for the whole time you are there. Weekends, there may be a few other locals with boats arriving. You can get a food and drink package and there is a bathroom. Icacos Island- you can go any day of the week with the local boat captain. From...More
