Puerto Rico for beginners

This photo was taken from Culebra island.
Anyone who travels to San Juan has to visit this amazing island.

Ferry sets off from Fajardo, a city that is an hour drive from San Juan.
From Fajardo ferry ride takes about an hour and a half to Culebra.
Ferry ticket costs about $5 which is not expensive.

On the island you can rent a golf cart or a Jeep Wrangler, for a little amount of money.

About $40 dollars.

Inexperienced drivers should not even think about rentina car there.

Driving in Belgrade is nothing compared to driving in San Juan.

Generally, do not go anywhere there are no tourists.

I warn you… do not pass through La Perla during the night.

 

We decided to go for a golf cart, since none of us being 25 years old at the time we could not rent a jeep. 🙂

Food is amazing, restaurants are not that cheap, maybe even more expensive than in the USA.

Local beer Magna and Medalla in clubs and restaurants costs about $1.5-2.

We went snorkeling on a coral reef with turtles that are couple of hundreds years old. 

 Anyone who likes espreso will love it here!  🙂

Good cigars as well! 😀
People smoke pot on every corner! 😀
Flamenco beach on Culebra island is amazing.
These photos were taken with a phone and without any filters. 🙂
People are generally very relaxed there. Sometimes you can be bothered by it, especially when waiters act like that.  😀

La Perla is a part of San Juan that is very close to all hotels. Therefore, you have to be really carefull.

We had been warned by everyone.

Watch out for the scammers, because I gave $20 to a guy who said that he had been robbed and needs to call an ambulance.

He looked like an American and he talked with a Yankee accent.

 

Few days after that I saw the same guy trying to scam others on the same location. 🙂
