Today we decided that we needed to have an adventure day. At breakfast, Anabel told us that she was going to hang around the hotel & nurse her sunburn, but that idea was short-lived. When we called the number on a flyer she had for Yatumba Tours (a $50 all inclusive tour) they told us they’d pick us up in 10 minutes, because the tour was already about to start. We stopped at the room, grabbed some necessities (B’s camera & a water bottle filled with rum) and as B & I were heading out, Anabel decided she would join us. Here’s what unfolded throughout our day:
Eating in Piñones
La Cueva de Maria de la Cruz
El Yunque Rainforest – where we explored, rode the waterfall & played in the water…
Luquillo Beach – where we had a delicious lunch at Ceviche Hut, got roses made of palm tree leaves, and had the most beautiful conversation. We really got connected to each other. It was very moving… That’s what life is about!
Casa Bacardi – The Bacardi Distillery, where we bonded with fellow airline employees from our tour, got complimentary drinks (included in the tour) & had fun dancing & singing.

After the tour, we headed back to Old San Juan, for some light bites & drinks. We met up with Anabel’s friend, who was in town on the cruise ship he works on. So random, so much fun. Then, B & I made it a late night of drinks & dancing…with our new friends, Luis, who’s a driver in San Juan & Braulio, who we met at a restaurant we had eaten at earlier. These Puerto Rican men are such graceful dancers….they taught us well. There’s something about a man who knows his way around the dance floor. It’s been a really long time since I’ve had that. I loved it. Perfect way to end the night!
