Our Home Away From Home
"We’re sitting here on the balcony the day before we go home after a wonderful one-month stay at Edgardo and Marga’s beautiful condo. Like everyday we’ve been here, the sun rises and casts its light on the palm trees and ocean, giving mesmerizing beauty. You will not be disappointed in choosing this location. The pictures posted tell the truth; 50-feet from the ocean, tastefully decorated rooms, and a safe surrounding for your family. The condo was very well supplied. Just bring your swimsuit and toothbrush and you’re good to go. Each day we walked the beach, collecting sand dollars, starfishes and other unusual shells that washed up on the beach daily. During the day we visited some remarkable national treasurers like the El Yunque National Rainforest, Old San Juan and its 16th-century forts, the Bacardi Rum tour, the bio-luminescent tour on kayaks, Luquillo and Seven Seas beaches, and our favorite, the Fajardo lighthouse within the Las Cabezas de San Juan Reserve during its daylight tour and the special evening one. Our favorite food spots were many. Mojitos Restaurant in Old San Juan, #2 La Parrilla and #37 Ceviche Hut at the “Kiosks”, Lluvia Deli Bar in Palmer, El Varadero Seaside Grill and La Estacion in Fajardo, El Verde in Rio Grande, and shopping for local artesian fare was just great. Be sure to go to Coqui International in Palmer, and visit Puerto Ricans Arts and Crafts store on Calle de la Fortaleza in Old San Juan. Be sure to take home a symbol of Puerto Rico’s Christmas belief with a Three Kings artwork, and a Vigilante Mask. A couple times during the month, our adult children and young grandchildren visited from the states, and they loved the condo, the beach, the pool and the entire Puerto Rican island for what it has to offer all ages. Oh yes, if you need a grocery store, go to Ralph’s; it’s 5 minutes away. Thank you Edgardo and Marga for providing us our home, away from home. We’ll be back again!"
