367 Calle de Tetuan, San Juan, 00901, Puerto Rico
I was given wise advice about going to Puerto Rico: EAT A LOT. Honestly, I had no idea how serious this recommendation was, and my friend was very right. The food in Puerto Rico was amazing. Everywhere we went was an epicurean sensation. There...
PR-165, Cataño, 00949, Puerto Rico
Traveling to Casa Bacardi was an adventure in itself, and if you're staying in San Juan a few days, it's worth the trip. It's a fun look at the company's history throughout the Caribbean and Miami. What you can expect, if you take the ferry: an...
When I first moved to the island, I joined a friend in the Old City for a tour and lesson on the history of Puerto Rico. When passing by this little section of town near Pigeon Park, my friend and native-turned-tour-guide said that this was the...
501 Calle Norzagaray, San Juan, 00901, Puerto Rico
Old San Juan may look, at first glance, like a few other charming cities built during the height of Spanish colonialism—Havana or Santo Domingo, for example—but what sets it apart is the extent to which its architectural infrastructure...
525 Av. Franklin Delano Roosevelt, San Juan, 00918, Puerto Rico

Campamento Piñones, Carolina, Loíza, Puerto Rico
Doña Olga* is a large kiosk in Piñones, from which the smell of fritters wafts all the way to the beach. I often find myself getting a large order of bacalaitos (round cod fritters), empanadillas (turnovers), alcapurrias (dough of plantains or...
142 Calle Flamboyan, Vieques, PR 00765
Just sayin'... As far as beach bars go, this town's one-street scene is all bananas. After my trip, I called one of my awesome friends from college (go Providence!) who has frequented Vieques for work (lucky her), and when I told her how shocked I...
6063 Av. Isla Verde, Carolina, 00979, Puerto Rico
This resort is pretty chic day or night, and definitely worth a walk through, or a rum cocktail. One morning, looking to explore the area beyond our resort in Isla Verde, we wandered down the street to the El San Juan Hotel for brunch. The brunch...
Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia
Bolivia's street art scene is on the rise, and many artists use the art form to convey both political and social issues affecting the people of the region. In downtown Santa Cruz de la Sierra, an entire mural wall is completely devoted to ARTErias...
