The first time I saw Castillo San Felipe del Morro Fort in Old San Juan was by boat. Our cruise ship safely docked and I was mesmerized by the large stone fort. With only one day in Puerto Rico, we toured the smaller fort of San Cristobal, opting to spend more time exploring Old San Juan and dinner at the famous Barrachina restaurant. I loved San Juan immediately, and knew we would be back later to explore El Morro and Puerto Rico.

Ever since moving to Puerto Rico earlier this year, I am beach and water obsessed. Coming from the hot, dry desert the beach is still a magical, mysterious place. I am always on the hunt for special, secluded little places and ask all of the long-term residents about their favorite spots. So I was surprised when multiple trusted locals told me about the secret mountain pools around the island. Intrigued by other natural water activities, we decided on a visit to Charco Azul.
The St. Regis Bahia Resort caught my attention over a year ago during a two week vacation in Puerto Rico. Now that we are living in Puerto Rico full time, I booked a spa day at Remede Spa at St Regis Bahia resort.
The Radio Telescope in Arecibo, Puerto Rico has been on my travel destination wish list for almost 20 years, ever since the Visitor’s Center was built in 1997. The Arecibo Radio Telescope was completed in 1963 after only 3 years of construction. It is a Scientific treasure and an impressive piece of engineering.
I finally was able to explore the World’s Largest Radio Telescope mere weeks after it was no longer the largest – July 2016 China opened a Radio Telescope that is slightly larger, claiming the World’s Largest Title. Arecibo Observatory is well worth a visit for anyone who loves science and engineering.
Here is everything you need to know about the Observatory and how to avoid a Travel Disaster!
