Having lived in San Juan in the mid 70's I returned with my wife for our 31st anniversary in April to visit a close friend still living in San Juan and asked hiim to show us Puerto Rico. We traveled to several spots all over the island and on the last night we stayed here. With out doubt our favorite, quiet, beautiful, relaxing, great food everything we were looking for and more. The flora and fauna of the island on display with walking paths, plants labeled to help us better understand what we were looking at and remember them. Rustic perhaps, no phone, TV, radio, AC, but, we were there to relax, regenerate, recharge, we did! The first place we found that really offered us the chance do do what we really needed to do, rest and recharge! Thank you!
