After 4 days in Culebra we flew to Ceiba. It was just the two of us with the pilot! The flight was great! I know the ferry is cheaper but the flight is so fun!! We rented a car from Avis. We called from the airport and they picked us up. A short time later we were on our way. We drove to the rain forrest. The drive through there was just beautiful. The trees and plants are amazing. There are plenty of places to pull off and hike to enjoy the streams, waterfalls and beautiful vegetation. There is a little restaurant in the forrest that has good food cooked on a BBQ.
After the rain forrest we drove to Ceiba Country Inn where we spent the night. It is in a beautiful setting and is very clean. The breakfast of home baked goodies, fresh fruit, etc. was delicious! We went into town that night for pizza which was very good and huge!
The next morning we drove along the south coast and cut up into the mountains. The drive on the little roads was breathtaking! We went to the pork highway or “La Ruta del Lechón''. What a fun place!! Ate at Los Pinos where the pork was delicious, the portions were huge and the restrooms were spotless (nice!). Fun atmosphere with music and shopping carts and lots of families eating Sunday lunch.
We then drove onto Old San Juan where we dropped our car at the Sheriton Convention Center and took a taxi to Hotel Milano. Enjoyed an evening in Old San Juan and flew home the next afternoon.
All in all it was a wonderful trip!!
