We will be in Puerto Rico (after a cruise) Oct 23-leaving 26AM.
Our main must see places are El Yunque & BioLum Bay in Fajardo. Any suggested itinerary to accomplish these 2 things? Our thoughts have been to stay At the Wind Chimes as home base and take tours, or wing it and stay overnight in Fajardo or near Luquillo Beach? Is it easier to drive from the airport to El Yunque, i.e. less crazy traffic going east, etc.? What are the plus & minuses of driving in Puerto Rico in this area? Our concern is the tours won't give us enough time and mobility to see & hike El Yunque. Is it feasible to hike El Yunque and see the Bio Bay in the same day or is that pushing it? Or better yet, do the Bio Bay Sunday night and hike El Yunque Monday. Are there any off days for these 2 attractions, i.e. closed on Mondays, etc.? I appreciate all feedback and suggestions. Thank you in advance. sy
