  1. I am always amazed and enchanted by the beautiful colors in these more tropical places. Those intense colors with the blue sky and blue water: stunning!

    • Mark

      We think it is because the sun is so bright and the sky is clear. And, no air pollution!

  2. What a beautiful rain forest! I think I would have jumped in the water with my clothes on. Wash the sweat off the clothes, the body, and cool down all in one. That pool looks yummy.

      I would have fallen off a rock and killed myself 🙂

      It was truly a beautiful area. So glad we got to be here and enjoy it. Days like this one keep us going.

  3. I like your style in letting the tour group leave you behind and getting those photos. Nice work! Also good job surviving what sounds like a survival of the fittest approach to traffic control. I think I might make a hard pass at driving there. On the other hand, it does sound like they know it’s up to them to survive. So there’s that.

    I did the Bacardi tour some years ago while on a cruise. I too was disappointed by the “tour”. We should have done the fort instead. Enjoy your company!

    Your mail solution sounds perfect.

    We had a great long weekend. Lots of sleeping in (7:00am is sleeping in for us), some really nice weather, visits with marina friends and a couple nice boat rides. It is still cool here in the mitten; so we won’t be swimming for a while yet.

    Although I did take an unintended swim on Monday. Ugh. I was just short of ten years being a boater and I was so proud of myself for never falling off the boat. I was stepping into the dinghy and it moved. (Imagine that) I was lucky, I did not hit the big boat swim platform and lost only my dignity. I hope it’s another ten years before it happens again.

    • Hey Marie,
      Almost everyone I know has missed the dinghy at least once. Welcome to the club. 🙂 Glad you were not hurt.

      Sounds like you guys had a nice long weekend. Glad to hear it.
      Thank you for the comments. It is always nice to hear from you!

    Palmas Del Mar sounds like it would be really hard to leave. It sounds so beautiful! I often wondered about getting mail along the way. It’s nice to know that Puerto Rico gets regular mail. I would have definitely been taking advantage of Amazon Prime!

      Hi Marie,

      Yes it is going to be hard leaving here. They are really spoiling us.

      We use SBI for mail:

      Just about every company we do business with (bank, insurance, etc.) we have managed to go completely electronic. On the rare occasion that we do get mail, like from the government, SBI will scan it for us and we can look at it on-line. The service is pretty inexpensive and enables us to keep a USA address. Some cruisers use a relative. A few years ago, these options weren’t available and cruisers had to have the mail forwarded from a PO Box somewhere. It was very costly and slow.

      Here is a link to a funny post we put up about 3 years ago about mail:

      Hope you are enjoying the long weekend.

      Mark and Cindy
