I stayed in this unit from December 15-20, 2009. The place was clean
and in an excellent location. I found nearby fast foods and nice restaurants. The price of the food is about the same as in the US. We rented a car to go to El Yunque, Arecibo and Ponce. We found better prices in the food once we got out
of the tourist areas of Isla Verde and Old San Juan. Old San Juan
is much more expensive than Isla Verde, hard to find a parking space and traffic jams. The second day, we decided to take the bus right in front of
the property for 75 cents. We did not rent the car for that day.
We visited "La Parguera" and had some local food. The prices were very
reasonable in that area. We also visited El Morro Fortress and
the Arecibo gigantic Telescope (quite impressive). Highways to Ponce
and Arecibo are pleasant and have scenery spots where you can stop to
take photos and enjoy the view of the mountains.
You need at least a week to see the most important places of this
country. I have been in other islands of the Caribbean and this one is
the best one I’ve ever been to. It’s modern, there’s many friendly people, and it’s easy to get around. Most people speak or understand English in the Isla Verde and
Old San Juan areas.
I recommended this unit to my friends that are planning to visit Puerto
Rico next year. I also met other Americans that visit this island every winter. They recommended to book 2-3 months in advance should you like the unit because there’s a lot of recurrence visitors. Good luck in your search and hope this will help you in some way.
