Just back from…Puerto Rico!

LDPR’s Michaelann Millrood just returned from a whirlwind vacation to Puerto Rico and shares her story…

I recently got back to chilly NYC from Puerto Rico after a relatively impulsive vacation to the Isla del Encanto. And it was, indeed, quite enchanting. Gifted an airfare credit from my generous travel-agent mom, back in November I booked round-trip NYC-San Juan January flights, and hoped a friend would eventually commit to joining me. If not, I was happy to travel solo.
Good morning San Juan! Not a bad approach…
I ended up spending the trip with old college friends now living in San Juan (there’s no better way to see a foreign city than with a local!) and a friend from DC met me in Vieques (one of the most beautiful islands, off the coast of Puerto Rico). Check out additional photos and captions below for a snapshot into my awesome vacation!
Thanks, Michelle Valle at Grande Lakes Orlando for recommending the San Juan Marriott Resort, where I was greeted by a beautiful rainbow! 


After I spent an afternoon exploring Old San Juan, I ended the day at the El Morro and caught this beautiful sunset.
I hadn’t realized this when I booked my trip, but I was in San Juan for the San Sebastian Street Festival weekend, which is basically the Carnival of Puerto Rico!
Beach or pool? Tough decisions.
Secret Beach. I definitely recommend renting a car or moped and beach hopping!
