Before we moved to Puerto Rico, there really wasn’t much information available online and I had no idea who to ask. Speaking with Puerto Ricans that moved to the US helped me to understand some of the challenges (lack of jobs in PR) and some of the cultural differences, but we really had no idea what we were getting into until we officially moved here.
These are my tips learned in the past few years living in Puerto Rico, information that I wish I had known before moving and trying to adjust to my new island life. The purpose of this information is to guide you through the challenges of island life and help set expectations for your move to the Island of Enchantment!
Hidden away in the mountains on the north coast of Dominican Republic is El Limon waterfall, Cascada Limon.
There are several trail heads to begin the journey to Cascada Limon. The distance and difficulty of each trail varies and each of them ultimately reach the same entrance at the top of El Limon. For a change of pace, we rode horses.
Nevis Island is one of the best kept secrets in the Caribbean! This warm weather, tropical destination boasts amazing mountain views, stunning white sand beaches, fresh & healthy cuisine, adorable wildlife watching all wrapped up in a safe and relaxing environment.
Saint Kitts and Nevis is a little country located in the
Leeward Islands chain, the arched group of islands dripping down the eastern
side of the Caribbean Sea, beyond the USVI and BVI islands. St Kitts and Nevis
is the country name, as well as the names of the individual island states.
Join me for the annual scenic hike across the entire island of Puerto Rico, east coast to west cost every weekend in February and March.
For over 30 years, Puerto Ricans gather from all over the island to walk. Not in protest, or as a punishment, but as a community of nature lovers who set out each weekend for 2 months (February and March) to walk across the island. Known as the Caminata Panorámica, this annual walk goes coast to coast across the island of Puerto Rico. Starting in the east coast town of Maunabo and crossing under the mountain region of the island to complete the walk at the large town of Mayaguez.
Approaching the coast line of Dominican Republic, visitors are greeted with lush green tropical landscape along the jagged coast line at the edge of the little town of Punta Cana. The resorts are sparsely dotted along the coast. The thatched roof airport terminal of Punta Cana is reminiscent of vintage postcards of early air travel to far off tropical destinations.
