GUEST,Mark BS: Have you ever been to Puerto Rico? (15) RE: BS: Have you ever been to Puerto Rico? 21 Dec 07


Visited San Juan a few years ago. Warm and sunny and the beaches were fair, but the hotels were nice. They all seem to have a casino though.
Visited the rain forest and the old fortress in town - usual tourist stuff.
Restaurants in town has a Spanish flavor (natch) although any cuisine can be found. Cab drivers make jokes about the people from the Dominican Republic - guess they do the opposite in Santo Domingo.
Oh - bought a Rolex watch from a street vendor for $ 30.00. Must have been legit - he was set up outside the police station!
Didn't get to the smaller towns so can't say much there. Did enjoy the trip but feel kind of ho-hum about going back.
