Puerto Rico - Day 3

Sunday, 3 May 09

We got up to gorgeous skies and went to the dining room for breakfast. Again, the fruit breakfast was great. Apparently, the Casa Cubuy is known for its fresh fruit breakfasts.

We both took showers and packed our bags as we continued with our Puerto Rican vacation. We decided to hike down to the watefall one more time before we headed out. The water was SOOOOO much clearer and calmer today. L took some time to climb around the rocks. I think she had WAY too much fun. We wished we had more time to hike today because it was such a better day for it. We took some more pictures and headed out.

We drove back down the mountain and were amazed with the crazy drivers. The winding road is barely big enough for our little car and these people were flying around corners. I couldn't wait to get to the bottom. We detoured in Naguabo and stopped at Ralph's (a local grocery store). We wanted to grab some big bottles of water.

We got back on the road and headed for Fajardo to catch the ferry to Vieques. Once we figured out where we needed to park and buy the ferry tickets we decided to go find some lunch. We followed the traffic and found a beach with a restaurant. We ate at Costa Mia Restaurant. We had chicken salads! Fantastic. We sat at the beach for a little while taking in the sun, sand, and water. I believe we were sitting at the Las Croabas Beach, which was very close to the Nature Preserve.

After lunch, we headed back to the ferry docks in Fajardo. We paid for the ferry ($2) and headed to Vieques for 4 nights. We stayed at the Casa LaLanchita Amazing place on the Atlantic! The owner sat us down and went over the best places to go on the island. Two thumbs up here! Here is a picture of the Atlantic from our balcony.

We quickly changed into our suits and went to sit by the pool while the sun was still shining. We went to dinner at the Barefoot Bistro, which was a restaurant in a woman's driveway. Terrific food. After dinner, we took a walk through the main part of the city. We ended the night early with a good book.
