When I was growing up, my parents' motto was to spend money on playing and making memories rather than material things like cars and clothes. We took some incredible family vacations, and I think that the memories made on those vacations are one of the reasons my family is so close. That love of vacations has stayed with me as I've moved out of the house and started a family of my own. In the seven years I've been married, I've been on more big vacations than most people take in a lifetime. I made it for about nine months after K was was born before the vacation bug hit me again and I decided we needed to go on our first big family vacation. Although we eventually decided to go to Florida, our first choice was actually Puerto Rico.
#1 - You can canoe into the bioluminescent bay where everything is lit up and just beautiful.
#2 - It's the only place in the US National park service with a rainforest, El Yunque.
#4 - There is every high adventure activity imaginable from great scuba diving to horse back riding to exploring caverns.
And best of all, it's quicker to get to than most Caribbean islands and you don't need a passport if you're coming from the United States. It really is one of those destinations that if you've been to once, you'll visit again. And if you've never been to, you really should add it to the top of your destination list. It's still at the top of mine and once I'm comfortable crossing an ocean with K, we will be there.
