It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted but I felt inspired to keep blogging about my life and my adventures.
I recently took a trip to Puerto Rico with my dear friend, Sharon. We were only there a few days (May 4th-8th) but the experience was unforgettable. We didn’t get to explore everything that we wanted to but I left satisfied, refreshed, blessed and very burnt…. haha.
Day 1, Sharon and I left early to go explore Cueva Ventana (Window Cave) but little did we know that on our way there we would take a wrong turn and this is what we would find…
This view is called Lagos Dos Bocas (Dos Bocas Lake). We didn’t get to do this but there is a boat ride on the lake that provides lunch!
Once we stopped admiring the view, we headed back on the highway to Cueva Ventana. When we arrived at 8 AM, we were a little disappointed to find out that they don’t open until 10 AM!!!! Truthfully, it was my fault, I should have done more research. But I did not let that ruin out trip. I started searching for places near by and this is what I found…
This was 30 minutes away from Cueva Ventana. This awesome place is called La Cueva del Indio and I highly recommend it. It’s not well known but I wanted to share with you all this hidden treasure. The views were completely different from every angle, it was breathtaking.
Two hours later we were back on the road to Cueva Ventana! The whole morning did not go as planned but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
We began our tour at noon and it took about 1.5 hours. You are provided with a helmet and a flashlight. (I suggest you bring hiking shoes as some of the areas are slippery.)
I do not recommend this tour if you fear the following:
- The dark
- Slippery rocks
- The unknown…
But if you are totally cool with it, then go for it! I highly enjoyed myself. There was a moment when the tour guide asked us to turn off our flashlights and at that moment I closed my eyes and a wave of gratitude came over me. But I heard some others squeal in fear..
To end Day 1, we had to explore some of Old San Juan! Below are pictures of the beautiful city!
Lastly, we went to dinner at The Locals on Calle Loiza. While we were there we ran into this cool wall. It’s basically a library, you can take a book as long as you replace it with another book!
And that folks was Day 1 in Puerto Rico. I fell in love with the island the moment I stepped off the plane! If you are ever in PR, please check out these places, you will not regret it!
I am sending you huge amounts of love from this side of the screen.
