Hello my friends,
I will be traveling to Puerto Rico next month for work and my husband will be with me. The question is this... I will be working in Bayamon for a day and a half out of the 4 days, is it worth booking a room in Old San Juan so he will have something interesting to do while I'm busy for 2 days or is it too difficult to travel in and out of that area. If anyone has any recommendations for hotel/B&B type places I'd love to hear them! Thanks in advance.

Half the fun of the travel is the esthetic of lostness.

I stayed in Old San Juan when I was working in Bayamon about 6 months ago. It is fairly simple to get in and out of Old San Juan, I'm assuming you would be renting a car. There is some traffic along that route during rush hours, but nothing major. Old San Juan is gorgeous and if you are only there for 4 days, thats where I would suggest staying. I stayed at the Hilton Caribe, which is right after the first traffic light after entering the island. Very nice hotel, with great pools and private beach area, but about $10 cab ride to downtown Old San Juan. Also, I suggest trying mofongo, a fried plantain dish, es muy deliciosa! Enjoy PR!
