Content: I used Pandora Tours to go to El Yunque, Luquillo Beach & Bio Bay! El Yunque is the only tropical forest in the US, and despite being one of the smallest rainforests, it has a diverse and densely populated habitat. * the forest was closed after Hurricane Maria but some sections are reopened!

There is a casual and welcoming ambience! There’s all types of food there from Puerto Rican to gourmet Italian to fried snacks. And there is plenty of boutiques to check out!

Content: La Placita is a must see for anyone visiting Puerto Rico! It now functions as a market place during the day with some open restaurants and when the sun goes down, La Placita takes it up a notch and comes to life with high-end restaurants, chinchorros (open-air bars), clubs, and all night salsa dancing in the streets. It’s pretty much one huge block party! We ate dinner at Delavida, the nachos were amazing
