Puerto Rico’s Hidden Gems: Off-the-Beaten-Path Destinations to Discover

While popular tourist destinations like Old San Juan, El Yunque National Forest, and the beaches of Rincon draw thousands of visitors each year, there are many hidden gems scattered throughout Puerto Rico that are equally worth exploring. They not only offers a chance for adventure and discovery but also helps to support local communities and preserve the island’s natural and cultural heritage.


All Inclusive

What to Pack for an All-Inclusive Vacation

Spending a week at an all-inclusive resort during the winter is undoubtedly a good idea. There’s lots of daylight, beautiful white sand to sink your toes in, and tons of delicious, healthy foods available. Whether you want to explore Mexican cenotes, go snorkelling in the Dominican Republic, or drink mojitos in Cuba, there’s something for everyone to chase away the winter blues. Using my 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 packing list method, I’ve put together a capsule wardrobe that will take you from the beaches of Veradero to the restaurants of Riviera Maya to the discos of Ochos Rios and back again.


Guide to the Best Beaches of Vieques, Puerto Rico

Vieques is a small island located off the eastern coast of mainland Puerto Rico, known for its stunning beaches, bioluminescent bays, and natural beauty. Once used as a military training ground, it’s now popular among travelers looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the mainland and experience a more laid-back, secluded side of Puerto Rico. Let’s check out some of the best beaches on the island!

Winter Vacations for Canadians (That Aren’t All-Inclusives)

This time of year it feels like everyone I know is planning an all-inclusive resort trip to the Caribbean. I’ve looked into them myself but my own personal travel taste is leaning more towards the independent aventure style as time goes on. Mind you, I still love sun, sand, and surf so I wanted to provide you with some alternative warm weather destinations that you can easily visit for a week.


The Gallery Inn - San Juan, Puerto Rico |

Staying at The Gallery Inn in San Juan, Puerto Rico

I love unique places. With a chain hotel, you generally know what you’re getting and I can see how if you travel a lot, that sameness can be reassuring. One less thing to worry about. I like taking a chance on a one-off though. Interesting and unique hotels are part of the travel charm. Well, you can’t get much more unique than the Gallery Inn in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico.


SUP With You?

Every now and then a new activity will emerge and become really popular. It seems like everyone and their dog is doing it, so you’d best try it too. That was my thought on stand up paddle boarding (SUP) when I went to Puerto Rico. It seemed like fun, based on previous articles I’d read. So how did it go? Read on…


Glow with the Flow: Bio Bays in Puerto Rico

I dipped my hand in the warm waster of Laguna Grande, scooped up a handful and let the contents run down my arm. The water lit up and sparkled like I was a float in a Disney light parade. With every dip of a paddle or swish of a hand the water would glow. Almost like someone had cracked open a glow stick and emptied the contents into the lagoon. There’s a reason bio bay visits are one of the most popular things to do in Puerto Rico.


Yoga at El Morro |

Sunsay Snap: Yoga at El Morro

Castillo San Felipe del Morro, also known as El Morro sits at the mouth of San Juan Bay and was built to protect the city from attacks from the sea. Construction began in 1539 and additions were continually added over the next 400 years. A handful of sentry posts, known as garitas, dot the perimeter and if you’ve ever seen any tourism images for Puerto Rico you know they’re practically a national symbol. I knew that if I was going to add another yoga photo to my collection having a garita in the picture would be best. I managed to find a quiet spot and a ledge on the lighthouse that sits atop the fort. Half lotus seems to be my go-to for these situations. Can you guys recommend some other seated poses I can get into quickly while my camera’s counting down the timer? Maybe I should aim for…
