Downtown Old San Juan

Planning a trip for 5 people who live across the country from one another can be incredibly challenging, but my trip to Puerto Rico with my best friends from growing up was so worth it and one of my favorite trips that I’ve ever been on.

Puerto Rico is vibrant, exciting and was the perfect place for us to reunite for a fun vacation and much needed getaway after a long winter. We had a blast and I wanted to make sure I shared some of our favorite parts of the trip!
