Puerto Rico

On our third and fourth three-generation trips, my daughter, granddaughter, and I chose Puerto Rico, where we had the pleasure of staying at the luxurious Ritz San Juan, about fifteen minutes from the airport.  The hotel is kid-friendly, has an inviting pool, and delicious dining options.  (We did not pay attention to the in-house casino, which is not of interest to us; fortunately it is in a separate wing and not at all intrusive on the magnificent hotel ambience.)  On an excursion to charming Old San Juan, about half an hour by car, I fell in love with the handmade masks in a couple of crafts stores (see introductory photo and photo below).  On our first visit to Puerto Rico, we visited El Junque, the beautiful rainforest, where my daughter and granddaughter enjoyed hiking among the beautiful plants and trees.

During our first visit there were large iguanas in the trees surrounding the pool, but by the second year only a few young iguanas remained.

We enjoyed a delicious seafood dinner at Acquaviva in Old San Juan, with decor reminiscent of the sea and fresh seafood, which attracts large crowds so reservations are highly recommended.
