My Wife and I are very excited to have booked our first trip to Puerto Rico for 5 nights starting Dec 2nd. We are staying at La Concha. We plan on visiting El Morro, shopping/hanging out in OSJ, and booking an excursion through East Island. Does anyone have any advice on choosing between the Icacos vs Culebra tours? Are the beaches/snorkeling opportunities vastly different? I realize that one is a catamaran and one is a powered boat.
We are both outgoing, active, plan on hitting multiple dinner/drink spots, want to see beautiful beaches but also want to balance our trip to learn about the culture and beauty of the island. We don’t want to rent a car (I realize many recommend you do this) but still want to get a full experience. El Hamburger sounds like a can’t miss - what others spots should I dig into? We are open to "off the beaten path," as well as spots that she needs her high heels for.
Any advice is much appreciated!
