Boquerón Beach Puerto Rico

Boquerón Beach Puerto Rico On day 25 of our trip, we went to Boquerón Beach.  It was such a pretty beach and such a nice day.  I wasn’t able to swim this time since my ankle was broken, so I stayed in a chair up on the beach while my son enjoyed swimming with his

Cabo Rojo Salt Mines

Cabo Rojo Salt Mines The Cabo Rojo Salt Mines was one of the most interesting places we visited while we were in Puerto Rico.  It wasn’t on our Roadtrippers itinerary, it was really just a quick stop we made as we passed by.  A spur of the moment decision because I thought it was super

Cabo Rojo Lighthouse Puerto Rico

Cabo Rojo Lighthouse Puerto Rico / Faro Los Morrillos de Cabo Rojo

Cabo Rojo Lighthouse Puerto Rico The Cabo Rojo Lighthouse Puerto Rico was our second stop of the trip.  We stopped at the Salt Mines on the way here just briefly. We drove down a long dirt road to get to the lighthouse and parked at Playa Sucia which translates to dirty beach.  I thought that
