My sister booked a fabulous mountain home with a beach view on HomeAway in Bayamon (only $100 a night!). I highly recommend this place if you are looking for a secluded respite with all the comforts of a home, while still being within traveling distance from the airport and San Juan city. Renting a car is recommended if you stay outside of town.
Saturday – Viejo San Juan
When the boys heard there were old forts to explore, they couldn’t wait to see San Cristobal and El Morro. We spent Saturday morning exploring the history and scenery of Old San Juan. Fortunately we were there during National Park Week and could enter El Morro for free!
Sunday – La Playa
On Sunday morning we drove to Fajardo and climbed aboard a few of our family’s boats for a day of fun in the sun. After checking out a few small islands as options, we opted for Cayo Icacos, where we spent the entire day in the sand or the water.
