Puerto Rico vacation
 
I heard a few of you have been to Puerto Rico without problems, so I am planning to visit next summer. However, I keep reading that Culebra island is a must visit location, but it is located off Puerto Rico, but still belongs to the U.S. Has anyone visited this island while in PR? I am afraid to accidentally leave the U.S lol

I visited the sister island Vieques which houses a US Air Force base. Both are assessable through a ferry ride in Ceiba, PR. You have to get there early to catch the ferry, they sell out pretty quick

You'll be fine brother. I went to PR in 2018 and took the ferry to Culebra. It was super cheap, something like $5 roundtrip. Culebra is part of PR so there are no issues. The boat ride is about 45 min and when you arrive, you just get off the boat --nothing is checked or anything (if you're worried about that) and you'll see a bunch of people tryna get you to rent a jeep. My wife, friend, and I rented a golf cart instead and rode that sucker around the island. Check out the tank at the beach -- it's pretty interesting. The beach is ridiculously clear, blue, and beautiful.


Dude - WARNING. Avoid this shit hole Chinese restaurant (Mandarin House) in Condado across from Casino del Mar. Here's a picture of me, my wife, and my boy flipping it off after they conned us. Overpriced, shitty food, and in typical Chinese fashion, they nickel and dime you. Fuck this place to oblivion. I wouldn't be surprised if the meat came from the stray dogs after the hurricane.

Pinche gente puerca animales chinos hijos de su puta madre.

Oh rook! Custamas. O herro, u rike shitty food? U at the light prace hehehe

Did you guys get a car rental while there? I read driving is pretty bad in PR, so I was thinking of mobilizing via uber/cabs

Good call out. The drivers there are worse than Florida. You will see a bunch of cars pulled over on the freeway and people having casual conversations. All the signage is in Spanish and they use the metric system, which is pretty cool because it does give you that feeling of being in a different country, but without leaving the US.

We did rent a car. Ubers weren't expensive. Assuming you're staying near San Juan and If you want to go to Vieques or Culebra, you will need to get some kind of transportation arranged if you're not renting a car. It's about an hour drive. Having a car will give you the chance to see El Yunque forest (which we didn't - it was closed when we were there due to the recent hurricane at the time) and explore other parts of the island. Get ready to hear everyone talk like the lady from Caso Cerrado my dude. Hella funny.


Oh ya, forgot to add. If you rent a car, be prepared to have the insurance pushed on you like crazy. I still opted to go without it. They will try very hard to convince you. Don't fall for their bs.

Were you there when the earthquake happened yesterday?

Apparently 2/3 of Puerto Rico has no electricity due to the earthquake - how is it over there Crest?

Do you guys think it will still be worth visiting PR after the earthquakes? I was planning on going towards the end of May
