There seems to be a renewed interest in Puerto Rico lately. I had not heard much about people traveling there for vacations but we did in 1980 approximately. I specifically remember one snafu when my mom booked the trip–the ticket agent on the phone (nothing was online back then) confused San Juan for Santa Domingo. Nevertheless, it worked out that we went to San Juan, Puerto Rico. Now, I am curious about Santa Domingo as I write about this snafu. The markets were very authentic in Puerto Rico at that time. We mostly spent time at the resort.
Activities to do:
A convenient thing about Puerto Rico is that you don’t need a passport to get there as it’s part of the United States. This has been a quick trip idea for friends of mine who did not have updated passports. Just something to keep in mind. Puerto Rico means “rich port.” The culture, music, food and people are vivid.
