our last day in Puerto Rico

by | Mar 3, 2010 | Travel

I really like having late afternoon flights home because even though we get home late (usually around 11pm), it means we have a few hours of exploring time on the day we leave.

In this case, we used the extra time to go back to El Yunque and get some fantastic views of the coast and rainforest. While the temperature was about the same (around 77F), the lack of all the rain and mist made a world of difference in the panoramic views.

Before dropping the car off, we also drove down to Old San Juan to get a glimpse of the fort and explore the one way streets.
