snorkeling couple Puerto Rico 11/16-23 where to stay?

My husband and I are looking for a new adventure so we decided to visit Puerto Rico (couldnt swing the time to visit Dominica :-(...next time) Were from Huntington Beach, CA so although we live in a tourist town we know all the tricks to bypass the crowds and really enjoy local beauty... Looking for a similar experience in PR? We would love local insight, where to stay, eat and what def cannot be missed. Mainly looking to snorkel and see rainforest, stuff we cant do/see here - were both adventure/waterman-woman types. Please no big hotels, cattle tours, or stuff youd rec to cruise ship people. We like off the beaten path, seeing things from a locals perspective. Any help would be great!

I would stay on Culebra for the snorkel part of your trip and stay in El Yunque for the rain forest part. There are a number of small Inns and rentals you can find. Skip San Juan area, stay in small towns.

Rent a car.

LOTS of adventure things to do in PR- you name it, we have it. Both North and South of the rain forest will give you fun, but also check out the Utuado/Arecibo area for fun water/adventure places.

Like flower says, do 3 spots if you can. Lots of small inns and Paradors.

You might even consider Desecheo Island for a snorkeling trip which is the opposite style of island then Culebra on the opposite side of the island. Its more of a free swim straight down and look as you come up.
