Take Me Back Tuesday – San Juan, Puerto Rico

Well it might not be too surprising, living in the Northeast right now, that I would bring back Take Me Back Tuesday.  And how fitting that I just got back from San Juan, Puerto Rico last week!  Yes, please Take Me Back, Tuesday. Thanks!

I booked this last-minute trip with my girlfriends.  We were looking for a cheap getaway where we could escape from the snow to the SUN! Puerto Rico was the perfect destination for our Girlcation!

Where We Stayed

El San Juan Resort and Casino

This hotel was great.  It is in the Isla Verde section of San Juan, which has a bunch of hotels and resorts and some great restaurants.  It seems most people stay here or in Condado which is another tourist area not too far.  El San Juan had everything we needed during the day; beach, two pools, swim up bars, a couple of restaurants, and even a Starbucks (yes we went to Starbucks in Puerto Rico…it’s still the US).

Not to mention it was a beautiful hotel.

They even offered free yoga! I was so happy that the girls wanted to do it with me.  It was such a nice way to start our first day.

The first day we spent plenty of the time on the beach and of course taking some selfies to make everyone at home in the snow jealous.

We enjoyed the swim up bar of course.  Our drink of choice on this vacation were Mojitos!  The swim up bar had the best pineapple mojito.  Oh what I would do to jump back in this picture right now!
