What part of PR

Never been to Puerto Rico and wondering what would the best area stay? We love the beach and to have bars and restaurants within walking distance. FIne dining not important. We also like to be among the locals as mouch or more than just tourists. End of March would most likely be the dates involved.

To give you an idea of what we have enjoyed in the past...Negril Jamaica, St. Maarten(dutch side)and Puerto Vallarta. Our least fav destination has been the Dominican Republic.

The greatest concentration of bars/restaurants would be in the Isla Verde, Condado, Old San Juan areas, or maybe out toward Rincon.

My suggestion is always to first figure out what activities you want to do. Then see where those activities are located on the island. And then finally choose an area that is convenient to those activities.

Some things to do besides the beach include ...

* rain forest

* Old San Juan

* bio bay

* ziplines

* ATVs

* horseback riding

* golf

* casinos

* shopping

and lots more.

Take a look at http://www.PuertoRicoDayTrips.com/ to jumpstart some ideas for your planning.

Loomis, I recognize your avitar from the LV site, when I was doing research for our trip there in June...something tells me that recent snow storm has you looking for a little action with a more moderate climate!

Have a great rip, binti

That's "trip"! Unless you plan on doing some surfing, too!

Thanks you for the links. Bio Bay and the rainforest look great.
