Hi - we are considering going on vacay to SJ in June (hubby and I as well as our 5 yr old) and I'm trying to figure out where best to stay and if we should divy up our week long trip between SJ and somewhere else. We are beach people (we try to hit a caribbean island every year) and I understand that PR/SJ has a more a metropolitan feel than a caribbean island (I've been to SJ for work and this is our first time as a family). Rather than rambling on, here are my questions -
- I keep reading about Isla Verde having the nicest beach in SJ, but i'm concerned over airport noise and fumes and the reviews of the hotels aren't so stellar. Can anybody recommend a condo-plex that's farther from the airport but still being on the Isla Verde Beach?
- We're also open to going to another part of PR after staying a couple of days in SJ, but still within an hour drive away from the airport to get our beach on - is this possible and where would you recommend? Unfortunately, Culebra and Vieques is out of the running, but would love to visit someday.
I guess I still rambled on, but hope it makes sense. Thanks in advance for your input!
