This was a satisfying adventure discovering the wonderful people of this beautiful island. Experimented on lodging by staying in two different hostels, a couple of guesthouses, and four hotels. Stayed in Old San Juan, Culebra, and four other locations in Puerto Rico. It was a two week fantastic odyssey. Going by yourself can be an exciting journey.
"Fun Smoking My Cigar!" When I first entered I wandered around a bit. It was late morning on a weekday and I seemed to be the only shopper. A knowledgeable employee greeted me and escorted me into the well stocked humidor that was organized with extensive selections. Well, I was overwhelmed with so many choices. I asked the gentleman to suggest a cigar and he picked out a HOJA BORICUA HECHO A MANO. It was all Greek to me since I am not a regular cigar smoker, a cigar aficionado. I did not want to miss smoking it there. He clipped it and torched it for me. Then I kicked back, and smoked in the handsome, plush cigar lounge. I had fun smoking my cigar laid back in a comfortable leather recliner conversing with a daily patron doing the same. We talked for a half hour while smoking. This experience in The Cigar Store was one of the highlights of my stay in Old San Juan.
"The Best Fun in Old San Juan!" It’s 1:15 AM in the morning and I just walked back from the Nuyorican Café. I was there since about 7:00 PM. I paid the six dollar cover. For the opening entertainment there was an improvisational/comedy group. Then after 10:00 PM a good live salsa band played. I wanted to hear a live salsa band. It was the second night of my two week trip to Puerto Rico for the first time. As a Senior Solo Traveler I ventured out very early one evening while in Old San Juan staying at Posada San Francisco. I went there during the third week in April on a Thursday night. I was told the Nuyorican Café was just up Calle San Francisco a couple of blocks then turn left down the side street, “You can’t miss it!”. I couldn't find the place. Finding the entrance on the side street was challenging. The place is located on an obscure alley. I missed the tiny sign-I never did see any sign even after it opened. No signs or anything. After circling the block I started asking questions. It was confirmed. The place was the 3rd shuttered window down the alley from the corner of Da House hotel. I staked out the place to be sure of the address. There was not any action. The door was not open.
I got there way too early. I was sure I had the right address. At this point I was determined to hang in there and wait until something happened. I was there for the duration whenever things got started. Finally. The door opens. It was the doorman who parks a stool on the stoop. I started to talk to him and he is informative and congenial. He had a friend hanging out with him, and the three of us chatted for over a half hour. I was told that the salsa band, the house band, El Comborican, would come on around 11:00 PM. I asked him if I could step inside. There was no one there at 8:00 PM. I checked it out. No one but staff. I went back outside. Continued to talk with the friendly doorman and his friend. They said there was a local improvisational/comedy group that would perform on stage before the live salsa band. The three of us chatted for another half hour. I took a break from them and smoked across the alley leaning on the wall watching the scene. About ten minutes after the comedy group took the stage the doorman said, “They’re on. You won’t want to miss them”. I paid the $6.00 cover charge and entered, sat at a table in the back, and was in for a surprise. I don’t speak a word of Spanish (This was all in Spanish). Within minutes I was gut laughing. Stayed for the entire presentation. Then I took a smoke break outside watching people showing up for the live salsa band and dancing. I witnessed the doorman greeting people, answering their questions, collecting the cover charge, and inviting them in. Once the band started the local regular dancers also showed up and got the dancing started. I had been studying this beautiful local woman for a while who was sitting a little more than arm’s length. I noticed she was still sitting watching the dancers. I was itching to give it a go at least once. I asked her and we managed to squeeze in. We danced. I had a good time trying to Salsa with this fine lady in this mixed crowd of locals and tourists of all ages with a wide range of dancing abilities. It was easy to detect the real Salsa dancers. I am an old school veteran of Philly dance steps (American Bandstand early days). It was electric with so much energy I was buzzing and I'm not a Salsa dancer. I gave it my best.
The house band, El Comborican, was great. Beautiful women were all over the place all decked out. This place has plenty of energy full of friendly people out to have a good time where tourists and locals blend together. I would not call this just a tourist club for half of the crowd was made up of locals.
Live salsa music is played starting Wednesday through the weekend. Music generally starts after 10:00 pm, they’re located about 2-3 blocks from the Taxi stands, and it’s an easy walk after a night of dancing and drinking. Check out their Facebook page for the latest happenings, or their website, but they don't update it very often while they usually post what's happening on their Facebook page (on the day of). If I ever get to go again I will show up later and stay much longer. This is an incredibly lively, thoroughly entertaining night spot full of friendly people having lots of fun. Listening to the live salsa band while watching the dancers on the tiny, packed dance floor is a one of a kind experience. When I was there everyone was having a great time, but I had the best of all.
"Share a table at the Pan Deli" Located right in the center of downtown Dewey a few blocks from the ferry terminal, Pan Deli is a good local place for breakfast and lunch. Convenient to walk to from several guest houses including the one I was staying in out by the airport. Go early for breakfast at least by 9:00 AM to avoid a long line. Be patient. You will have to wait because the place bustles with locals and tourists. You will wait for at least 15 minutes for your food to come, but it seems so much longer when you are hungry. Many call in their orders and that accounts for part of the line waiting to place an order. Limited seating (I’d guess around fifty). Be glad to share a table. The price, service, and quality of food is good. The staff and patrons are all friendly. There is no language barrier. I ate here twice during my five days on Culebra. My breakfast was a ham, egg, and cheese sandwich. Espresso con leche is strong, cheap, and good ($1.25 in a standard Styrofoam cup). For lunch early in the afternoon one day I had a pastrami sandwich with the works on it. The fresh baked bread is the best. Both meals were delicious. They stop serving lunch at 3:00 PM. Cash only. They’re open for happy hour some days, but I did not make it.
"Breakfast in Old San Juan!" The owner/manager of Posada San Francisco (where I was staying) recommended I walk down San Francisco Street about three blocks and go here since it is a great local breakfast place. Cafetería Mallorca in downtown San Juan is an older establishment and one of the few places to get breakfast in the early morning. I visited it twice for breakfast. Sit on a stool at the counter to watch the action. Time warp, nostalgic, a little dated looking. It reminded me of a diner-style restaurant in Camden, New Jersey back in the 1960s. The window display viewed from outside was full of delicious looking, tasty pastries and desserts. Inside there are plenty of tables and a long counter with stools had tourists, students, local business people, folks of all ages sitting, talking, drinking coffee, reading newspapers, and enjoying eating their orders. The majority of patrons appeared to be locals on their way to work, to school, or their place of business. The friendly, dapper older gentlemen waiters provide great service. They stay busy toasting sandwiches, making freshly squeezed juices, serving coffee, taking and serving orders, greeting and talking with locals. Toasted and buttered, full of ham and Swiss cheese, my Mallorca was yummy both times there. The coffee is good and strong. Had mine with milk. No free refills. I spent well under $10 each time there. This diner has great ambiance and definitely seemed like the morning place to socialize. Pay at the counter on the way out. It’s a great spot with authentic style. For a taste of Puerto Rican food, and a chance to rub elbows with friendly, helpful people, Cafetería Mallorca is tops. Enjoy relaxing in the comfort of this simple diner with affordable prices. This is place where the waiters are attentive (the Real McCoys) and gifted at their craft of serving. Definitely a place to visit especially if this is your first trip to Old San Juan and Puerto Rico like mine was. You will appreciate having come here.
"A Cold Medalla and a Chance on the Slots!" Stopped in twice for a cold Medalla and to play the slots since it was located about halfway during my long walk from my guesthouse out by the airport to downtown Dewey. It is located right next to the baseball stadium, right smack on the curb of the main drag. There is a pool table, plenty of space with tables, and a bar. Seems like a local hang out that is open later than many other bar/grill spots in town. I didn't eat there, but heard the food was pretty good especially the hamburgers, but I didn't want to eat a hamburger while in Puerto Rico. The people here are friendly just like all persons I met on the island.
"Relaxed Break from driving. Chilled Out and Enjoying the Scene." It was a sunny day close to noon and I was exploring the northwest coast of the island in my car rental. I wanted to visit more stretches of beautiful beach Puerto Rico has to offer. I arrived here, by myself, the last week in April 2013 in the late morning around noon or early afternoon. It is very easy to find. I followed the signs that said ?Crashboat Beach?. I wasn't there long, an hour and something, but during that time I discovered a beautiful beach with a nice view. It had clear, clean water, good food, and friendly locals. There wasn?t a charge to park like some other Puerto Rican beaches. I was glad I had gone early on a weekday because I could park in the lower lot which is free. The lot was crowded about full, but I lucked into one of the few open spots. I was glad I had showed up early in the day. Parking is tight and I heard it fills up quickly on weekends. Even though the parking lot was about full the area did not seem crowded. It turned out to be a colorful place with a lot of local flair. There were several vendors selling kabobs and drinks. They were selling fried empanadas, five dollar pi?a coladas at the kiosks right at the boardwalk close to the parking lot. The food vendors were selling yummy pork and chicken skewers. Some had fresh coconut and tostones. The smell of grilling pinchos filled the air. Pinchos are delicious shish kebobs of garlicky pork or chicken skewered on a stick, grilled and not expensive. The chicken one was a delicious snack and a yummy bargain. There is a snack bar area and bathrooms on the other side of the parking lot. That?s where I had two Medalla Lights and several smokes studying the place. I ate my skewered chicken on a stick at a picnic table under the palms watching the small crowd then had the beers at the snack bar. This is the area for picnics. Some people brought their own snacks and food. Others were barbecuing. There is a pier (old docks) you can walk or swim out to and jump off. You are allowed to walk on it to get a better view of the sea. The water comes up and sprays you when big waves come in. I saw two people fishing off the end, but didn?t see people jumping off. The waves were calm, not very rough, not too big or strong. I understood that when there are killer waves, then calm clear water when the waves chill out. The excellent, clean beach is well taken care of. Clear, clean water on a sandy beach.
The beach stretches both ways from the main parking lot. Some people were under their beach umbrellas, lounging in chairs, facing the sea watching all the things going on around them enjoying the day. From what I had read I missed a few things.
I read it is a major local party beach on the weekends and so crowded you can?t even get down to the beach to park. I have read in other reviews that there is a local who comes around selling handmade jewelry, hats, and koozies made of palm leaves. There's a guy there known as "The Pelican Man" who gets the pelicans to do tricks like dance, dive, and eat from his hands. You can pay him to have a picture of the pelican with you. I understand it is quite a show. He calls them by name while doing their routine of tricks. The unique, colorful, and striking crash boats are stacked in a row on this beach. It is a great place for swimming, snorkeling, or surfing. There is plenty to do while there, jet ski rentals, boat rentals, scuba and snorkeling, food, drinks, etc... I had heard it's also perfect for diving.
"Nice spot at the end of the road." I missed being here for sunset. I was here in the middle of the afternoon. It is on a lovely piece of land overlooking the water. Gorgeous, breathtaking, panoramic views of the ocean from this well maintained, manicured park. It is a clean, pleasant space that has sitting areas with benches. There are surrounding walkways along the edge near the ocean under tropical shade trees with lots of plants and flowers. The lawn is bright green with edged curbs. There is a shelter/gazebo that serves as a look out point. There is a concession/food purchasing area that was closed when I was there. The clean bathrooms were open. A police officer patrols the grounds on foot. There is no charge for parking or entering. The lighthouse perches on a ridge above rocky cliffs ocean side. It is a quiet peaceful area. You down upon the surfing beach,(Domes Beach) watching the surfers trying to catch a wave. You see the nuclear facility up the road. Above you inland you see houses perched on the ridges of Barrio Puntas. El Farro Lighthouse is a nice spot at the end of the road worth the scenic trip.
"Rum Drinks during sunset." One reason Tamboo Tavern is popular is because of its location. I didn't eat here, but studied the menu for a long time. I had two happy hour rum and cokes from the bar and drank them on the beautiful upper deck overlooking the ocean. Pillowed seating on comfortable outdoor lounges are provided along with small tables and chairs on the upper deck. It is a nice spot to view the sunset. The atmosphere is laid back in this beach bar and restaurant. A good place to hang out and relax for awhile. Visit here when traveling the West Coast of Puerto Rico. It is just a fifteen minute drive, or less, to Domes Beach by the El Faro Lighthouse.
"Splendid Casa Verde Hotel." Down the hill from the crowded neighborhood (I do mean down the hill), two blocks from Sandy Beach, after having been given directions by a local guy who ended up generously leading the way in his pickup truck (Gracias Senor), I arrived at Casa Verde Hotel. It was so much more than I had expected. My expectations were influenced by Rum & Reggae's Second Edition travel book Puerto Rico August 2007. A dirt cheap, no-frills guesthouse was what I was expecting. Turns out Casa Verde is the opposite.The book was talking about the older guesthouse across the street (that is still part of the property, but renovated) which I was looking forward to staying in because it was cheap and I'm on a tight budget. Well, I stayed at the Hotel in the Maria Room above the pool adjoined to a balcony with a ocean view. It was great. The room was super clean and modern. It was the best room I had during my two week first time trip to Puerto Rico. My room had plenty of space, a comfortable King size bed, flat screen computer monitor TV, a mini-fridge, and the most updated sink and shower. It is a pleasant, chic space.
There is a handsome bar surrounded by beautifully tiered terraces with nice, plush couches and chairs with pillows for lounging. I did not drink at the hotel’s bar that evening because I had bought a small bottle of rum, coke, a huge blueberry muffin, and a six pact of Medalla earlier in the afternoon after a ten minute drive to the grocery store at the top of the hill. I did sit by the pool that evening and drank while listening to four American girls chatting it up and laughing on the balcony by the bar one level up. It was entertaining listening to them. I had two rum and cokes earlier at the Tamboo Tavern which was a two minute walk away down by the beach just to check it out, study their menu, size up the place, and gaze at the ocean around sunset from their second story balcony.
I did not eat at the hotel’s Escape restaurant. The property’s other bar/restaurant just across the street on the guesthouse side next door closes at midnight. If you want to stay out later, there are a few other places within walking distances.
I had the free, tasty continental breakfast the next morning provided in the lobby in front of the office before checking out. Coffee, juice and fruit was all I needed. I turned down the pastry. The hotel’s restaurant serves a full breakfast.
The new decor, which was tastefully upgraded to give it an outdoor organic & laid back tropical feel, is the result from Billy following the wisdom and guidance of Anthony Melchiorri (the host) of show Hotel Impossible from The Travel Channel. Check out the Episode Recap: Casa Verde at www.travelchannel.com .
I had two opportunities to meet Billy Bonbright, the hotel owner/manager. During check-in he was warm hearted and informative. He got me fixed. He is certainly running a very good operation, super hands on. Billy is a friendly gentleman, super host, diligent and dedicated, and conversational. When I checked out I asked him about accommodations he could recommend for lodging down past Ponce on the South side. He suggested the Marina de Salinas. It proved to be just the right place.
This is an ideal spot for surfers, families, couples, or a Senior Solo Traveler (like myself). I am grateful to Billy for his hospitality and having the chance to stay at his wonderful property. I highly recommend it.
"Beautiful Setting On a Small Beach." I stayed here for one night at the end of April 2013. Had more space than I needed since I was solo. Wonderful spacious apartment with open porch facing the Atlantic. Very clean and comfortable room. The breeze off the Atlantic was pleasant. The next morning I stayed until check-out. I had a good breakfast and coffee in their restaurant. Went to beach and enjoyed the shallow calm behind the rocks. A nice quiet property that is very well kept. The painters were busy with one exterior and gardeners were busy clipping and grooming the attractive flora and shrubs. I sunbathed at the pool awhile. This seemed like an ideal place for a family. There were not many quests since it appeared to be the off season. All of the staff were great.
"Blows My Mind. The view from San Cristobal. The Labor to build this massive structure." The wind off the Atlantic will blow your hat off over the wall and it's gone for good. I didn't lose mine because I held it in my hand. Go slow. Sit a lot. Study the cracks. Get as many perspectives as possible. Walk into those small lookout points to gaze. By all means take the trolley to and from there. Those boots were made for walking at your destination. I became fascinated and wondered constantly about the building process involved. Then I'd focus on "How would it have been to be stationed here at this fortress centuries ago?" I developed this overwhelming appreciation for the Spanish contributions to the New World. Severe determination of Spain to protect the possession. Wonder while you're wandering around. The National Park staff is great. Enjoy the wonderful views.
"Use those free trolleys in this wonderful old city full of Life!" Stayed here for five days. Discovered many fascinating things about the history of Old San Juan. Did a lot of walking sightseeing all over the place. Used the trolleys to go everywhere. People watching was a pleasure. Many tourists off the cruise ships. Pigeons all over. The narrow streets are a challenge driving in your rental car. The local residents, business persons, service workers, university students, trolley drivers, historical site personnel, all Puerto Ricans I had the privilege to speak with were pleasant, friendly, and informative. I would sit for hours on my balcony watching the folks walking, sitting, talking, laughing, singing, etc... I'd sit on a park bench at one of the plazas to study the crowd and enjoy the ambiance.
"Worth the visit." Took the bus from Old San Juan to the art museum in Santurce. Impressed by the staff and the setting. Lots to absorb in a couple of hours. I was with another guest from the guesthouse I was staying in Old San Juan. She, too, was an art advocate and a working artist. The both of us enjoyed studying the work present. Gave us a lot of insight into all the contributions Puerto Rican artists have made in the art world. It was a pleasant and informative experience.
"Interesting Place to stay by the ferry dock in Fajardo". I stayed one night while touring Puerto Rico in a car rental. Met and conversed with many interesting well traveled guests from all over in the party atmosphere on the roof patio. It was a great deal for lodging. I would stay there again in a heartbeat. ?Finding a parking spot on the street out front is problematic. Find one and stay put. Ferry dock parking lot is just behind the property, but it is five bucks a day.?
"Great place on the water!" Went here three different times during happy hour or later. Staff is great. Didn't eat here, but it sure smelled good. Drank beer and listened. Sailors hangout, visitors visit, and all hang out. I got to hear the drumming provided by a local group on a Saturday night late, and it was great. Many locals came for the drumming. It was most entertaining watching everyone getting into the music and dancing. A place I would return to if I get to go again.
"Free use public computers and wonderful staff." I visited here one day and it was a good two hour visit. It was fun sharing the computers with some local teenagers. One boy was squealing a balloon making it cry while waiting on either his sisters or girlfriends. It didn't bother me. The best smallest library I have ever been to. Culebra is blessed to have such a wonderful facility.
"Beautiful beach. Fun place to be. Wonderful people." I enjoyed people watching here. There are many food and beverage choices at the kiosks. Public transportation to here from Dewey is three dollars each way. The camping area is a neat place. Makes you wish you would have brought your camping gear to stay right here at the beach. The water is a beautiful turquoise, the sand so white, shade in the palms, and the most friendly people. Not crowded even when there is a crowd on the weekends. One of those places you should be in your life time.
"Mary and Dave are great hosts/managers/owners. Good people and a nice place."
I stayed in the Blue Room for four nights. It was a great experience. Mary and Dave are relaxed, informative, helpful persons. I walked downtown Dewey every day, but took the public van or small bus from the airport just down the hill to Flamenco Beach. Three bucks each way, but much cheaper than renting a car or golf cart. A grocery store is close to this property. A two minute walk. The Lighthouse has a comfortable patio/garden area with a table and chairs, a nice amenity for sitting and watching all the flora, the feral chickens, lizards, and iguanas. Mary will pick you up and take you back to either the airport, or the ferry dock. This is where I would stay again if I ever get to go back again. Most sincere appreciation for being able to stay with you. Book no less than a month in advance. The Blue Room has a comfortable full bed. This place is the real deal.
"The best hostel in Puerto Rico." Booked online prior to taking my first trip to Puerto Rico. Book at least one month before your arrival. Stayed in mixed dorm the first night there. As a Senior Solo Traveler is was a very good experience being with younger persons from all over, but mostly from the States. The next two nights I had booked an Extreme Private which had a single bed and air-conditioner window unit. All bathrooms are shared, but no problem. The price for both the mixed dorm and the Extreme Private are inexpensive. This place is clean and safe. The location is good. Take the free trolley right out front. Great balcony. The staff and owner/ manager persons are the best. You will be fortunate if you get to stay here. If I ever get to go back to Old San Juan I will book here before I book my flight. My three nights here were the best introduction I could have had to Old San Juan. “Try to book the mixed dorm as first choice then go from there. The Extreme Private is, also, a good deal. Bring groceries with you unless you plan to eat every meal out.”
"Fun on Tanca Street!" If you enjoy a basic room in a great location in Old San Juan than go to 205 Guest House. The older gentleman who stays there was just that, a gentleman. Yes, it is bare bones, but where can you stay in a secure place for such a great price. I had hot water when I took a shower. The balcony for smoking and seeing the street action was great. I stayed two nights and would not hesitate staying there again. The spirit of Puerto Rico thrives in this place. Go. Do not hesitate. Single room. Single bed.
Flying with Air Flamenco
I flew with them from Isla Grande airport to Culebra and back to Isla Grande during the last two weeks in April 2013. I paid $140 round trip. It was an eight to ten seat two prop craft. I was comfortable enough. All the staff and the pilot of the plane were friendly and professional. Both flights were uneventful. The scenery was splendid. We flew along the coast both ways. It gave me an informative perspective on Puerto Rico flying over the island. I'd recommend making reservations online in advance. Be aware of the 25 pounds per person baggage allowance on Flamenco. Above the weight limit, you pay by the pound for the extra weight. I was a few pounds over, but they let it slide. Even with a confirmed booking telephone a head of your flight just to make sure. I’d fly again with them without hesitation.
Friendly Crowd of Sailors and Locals
Marina de Salinas is located at the end of Road 701, Playa Ward in Salinas, Puerto Rico. It sits by a bay on the Caribbean Sea. The area is known as Porta Caribe and the center of tourism on the south side of the island. It's a bit difficult to find. A local house wife in a small neighborhood about two miles from the Marina de Salinas actually got in her car and led the way. Gracias, Senora! Otherwise, follow the signs leading to the "Playa de Salinas". I stayed in a basic room with a full bed. This was not booked online in advance. I was a walk-in that showed up in my car rental. The staff were accommodating and friendly. The room was clean and comfortable, but a little outdated. Many guests are private yacht owners that dingy in from their boats, or use a slip. There is a hotel restaurant, a local Puerto Rican bar/restaurant (that had karaoke this night) right across the street on the corner, and another bar/restaurant next to it right on the water owned and managed by an ex-pat and his wife (where I had a fish sandwich and beers). I did not dine at Costa Marina, the hotel’s restaurant. These other places mentioned were pretty basic. The Marina has a great outdoor covered sports bar area that was having a barbecue the night I was there. Unfortunately I had eaten a fish sandwich across the street earlier. Several people were there for the barbecue pork plates. The plates were heaping and looked and smelled delicious. I had a couple of beers and hung out for the karaoke. Someone was having a big birthday party with cake that was served to all of us. It was fun listening to the singers and watching the people. I was glad to have stayed here. The next morning I washed and dried clothes in the on site coin-operated laundry. Stared at a huge iguana stretched out on a huge limb of one of the big mangrove trees by the restaurant while my clothes were in the dryer. Off-the-beaten-path, plenty of positive vibes, the Marina de Salinas proved to be a wonderful discovery. I would definitely stay there again and try to hook up with a sailing charter to St. Croix.
Hertz, San Juan, Puerto Rico
I had booked a car rental with Hertz online two weeks prior to making my first trip to Puerto Rico. The plan was to pick it up at the International Airport in San Juan at 1:00 PM on the 04/24/14. Around noon I had just landed in Isla Grande Airport on a Air Flamenco flight back form Culebra. Air Flamenco personnel directing me to walk to the Million Air operation next door and request to pick the car up there instead of the International Airport. The lady staff member at Million Air was friendly and informative. She offered me a drink, said she would contact Hertz about my change in plans concerning pickup location of car, and invited me to relax in their splendid, comfortable lounge while waiting for the car to be delivered. She said it would be about twenty minutes to a half hour before they would get there with the car. There was nothing else for me to do. Sure enough right on time they were there with the car. This was flawless, convenient service. I didn’t have to wait in any long line. On 04/30/13 I dropped the car off at 1:00 PM at the Hertz depot/operations center (It’s the first right after entering the airport’s main road in, well marked with sign “CAR RENTALS”. I had filled her up with gasoline prior to dropping her off. There was an inspection of the car, I signed off and got a detailed receipt. No hidden expenses, no hassles. Only friendly, professional service all the way start to finish. I rode the free Hertz shuttle to Terminal Four. I am completely satisfied with the great service I received with Hertz. When I got home I noticed my credit card had been billed an addition charge for tolls. It was about $32. Considering I had traveled 477 miles in six days in a great running, comfortable, economy car rental from Hertz I was pleased to pay this charge. Hertz is commended for providing the best service at a great price.
Around noon on April 24, 2013 I had just landed in Isla Grande Airport on a Air Flamenco flight back form Culebra. Air Flamenco personnel directed me to walk to the Million Air operation next door and request to pick my Hertz rental car up there instead of the International Airport. The lady staff member at Million Air was friendly and informative. She offered me a drink, said she would contact Hertz about my change in plans concerning pickup location of car, and invited me to relax in their splendid, comfortable lounge while waiting for the car to be delivered. She said it would be about twenty minutes to a half hour before they would get there with the car. Sure enough right on time another Million Air lady staff member handed me the keys to the car. This was flawless, convenient service. I didn’t have to wait in any long line and could not have been treated any more professionally. They were superb. I was delighted to have been helped by them. Thank you, ladies.
