San Juan

day trip to El Yunque

Hubby & I will be in SJ on a Fri/Sat in June before a cruise that leaves Sunday. We want to see the rain forest on Saturday won't arrive until Friday afternoon. We're trying to decide which tour to take OR rent a car for day and venture off ourselves. We'll be staying near Old San Juan at the Coral Princess Hotel. Would love ideas and advice. Thanks, Marilyn

We rented a car for the day and visited, it was very easy to find and driving was not a problem. Although a little nervous to be renting from an off brand, I found a lot of recommendations for Charlie's, we rented with them with no problems.

I much preferred being on our own than with a group, we spent a good portion of the day there.

You didn't ask for places to eat but of the three places we tried for Puerto Rican food, this was our favorite. It's not fancy, more of a diner but the mofongo here was delicious. I'm wondering though if it isn't only open for lunch as there doesn't seem to be a dinner menu.

Thanks so much for you advice and the eating place, we're still talking it over. We're excited about our trip.
