TGIF! I hope everyone’s week is winding down easily!
I made my first trip to Puerto Rico two weeks ago with my BFF and had such an amazing time!! We split our trip in half, starting in San Juan and finishing off on the east side of the island in Fajardo. I’ll get in to everything we did and experienced when I do my full Puerto Rico travel diary but today I’m sharing with you where we spent our first couple days — The Ritz-Carlton, San Juan. We landed around 1 and were surprised to see how close the hotel was to the airport, less than 10 minutes drive. Old San Juan is about a 15 minute drive from the hotel as well so the location was very convenient. The property is classically elegant, we pulled up to the hotel on a brick cul-de-sac hidden away by lush palms. Luckily for us, our room was ready even though we arrived a couple hours before check-in time. We had a private check-in at the club lounge, everyone was so friendly and hospitable and made us feel ultra comfortable. We were able to grab premium drinks and snacks in the club all day and enjoyed a fabulous breakfast there during our mornings which you’ll see down below.
