Loved Puerto Rico

Wow, what a great trip.   Puerto Rico is Awesome and we will be going back for sure.

We stayed at the Waldorf Astoria El Conquistador resort which I would highly recommend.

Definitely the place to relax and enjoy.   85 degrees every day of the year.

Also, just outside the resort, found the best place on the island for food.   La Estacion with its pitmaster Kevin.   Awesome local cuisine.  5 stars in my book.


Fun and Relaxing
