15 Must See Sights in Northern and Eastern Puerto Rico

I recently spent over two weeks on the sunny and tropical island of Puerto Rico during one of the coldest months of the year-December. What a joy it was for me to skip some of the dreadfully frigid cold weather in Canada for a tranquil and humid stay in Puerto Rico. I’ll trade snow for sand any day. I think I was meant to have been born in a tropical destination; It’s in my blood. Based on my travels throughout the Northern and Eastern parts of Puerto Rico, here are my favorite 15 sights:

  1. Have you seen the Rio Camuy Caves with the third longest underground river in the world, a huge sinkhole and great caves or the Arecibo Observatory? It´s a great place to see in Puerto Rico.

    Safe travels,

    • I was just in Puerto Rico, but unfortunately the caves were closed when I was there due to high water levels from excess rain! I wanted to see it so bad. It will be on my must to see list for the next time I visit Puerto Rico. I won’t be going back this year though, but I’ll save that for a special occasion. When were you in Puerto Rico?
