Forget the Resolutions; set Fun Goals; Enjoy what Life has to Offer!


January; it’s a New Year, we hope you enjoyed the holidays; so guess what's Next?


No not resolution’s time; resolutions get broken way before they even get started and most are not much fun to keep in the first place so let’s toss them and move on to something new for some; yet very familiar for most. Vacation Planning Time. It’s going to get cold for all of you in the cold winter states. So planning a nice week or two vacation on a tropical island is a great Goal. OK so instead of resolutions let’s do some Goal setting. Goals that we achieve help us move forward in our lives and setting realistic Goals is the best way to succeed.

My goal is to take two weeks and head to a nice tropical island (Home for us), see and do as much as we   can in the time we spent there. So let’s plan it out. We get 10 working days; more if we leave on a Friday; that gives us two days to travel and if we leave really early we can do three Friday vacation days depending on travel distance. Ours is a little under four hours in the air.

OK two weeks and one personal day to travel; leave on a Friday morning; early arrival by midday and get that extra Friday vacation day. So what else? Plan ahead and let’s take advantage of the whole trip and plan what we want to do every day leaving the last two days to relax, contemplate our adventures and prepare for the trip back home. So the Goal is a great vacation to have adventures, shopping, dancing, clubbing, cultural day trips, dining and two days to relax maybe on the beach and enjoy life! A yearly vacation is the most important goal you and your family can sit down and plan together. We all need to get away, re-energize, enjoy what life has to offer. We work all year so let’s play a little and enjoy each other’s company in a new relaxed environment where we can share adventures and life together.

So take day to sit the whole family down set the goal to get away, plan the whole experience maybe over lunch or dinner. Find-out what each member wants to do, where they would want to go and see! If you come up with more than one place or country to visit than great; get the majority decision for this year’s trip and set goals for future trips until we visit and do what everyone wants to do, see and experience.

How about living like the locals in another country? It’s better to get a vacation rental home or condo with enough room for everyone; a new home away from home that we look forward to getting there after a fun day or night out. We all know the feeling of arriving home to a familiar place to relax and reenergize. So that would be a vacation rental home; live like the locals with all the comforts of home.

Vacation rentals can be found in every country these days, so do your homework and learn the dos’ and don’ts of renting a vacation home for a totally new experience in vacation travel accommodations.

Two Days to Travel, Five days to relax, explore rejuvenate and have fun!



You need to get away to refuel, relax, feed the mind, soul and body. Five days minimum will have to do and is perfect plus two travel days so it’s a seven day vacation. I did not need to twist your arm; seven days it is!
So where to? Puerto Rico is a few hours away, paradise weather, beach sun and fun so it's Puerto Rico! No arm twisting here either!

Day one is travel day; if you book an early flight you will be able to take in the sites to the rental accommodations do some food shopping and get settled in early for an early start on day two of your vacation. Plenty of time to plan...
So where to on day two? El Yunque tropical rain forest, explore/adventure or Old San Juan for sightseeing, shopping and much more?

Water Fall in El Yunque
El Yunque: Hiking, Nature Trials, Outdoor Learning, Picnicking, Scenic Driving, Water Activities. Site for info. El Yunque
Old San Juan:  immerse yourself in its timeless beauty and charm, Monuments, Memorials, History, Architecture, Old Forts, Shopping, dining, walking tours, dancing. Walking tours map in PDF: Old San Juan
Ok so whichever one you pick for day two the other could be your day three experiance.

So we still have so many more places to visit including the beach across the street if you are taking us up on our invitation to stay with us at Villas de Costa Mar; so let's say we leave the beach for the evening on any day you are back early or the last day before you leave. You can put a wash on and visit the beach for a few hours to relax, finish the wash and packing for your trip back home.
Guavate, Pork Highway Restaurants
So we have day four and five. So if you love dining and enjoy pork dishes my next suggestion is Puerto Rico's pork Highway in Guavate. I wrote an article on this in my blog which you can read...  Pork Highway. This is a nice drive; visit our site for Google map of the Villas de Costa Mar area and you can map yourself to anywhere on the island, including Guavate.

beach in AguadillaOne more day and so much to see so let's head to the west coast of Puerto Rico. You can stop in Aguadilla and go ice skating; so you can say you ice skated in Puerto Rico! You can take in all Aguadilla has to offer; read my article for more info. 
Light HouseOr on to Rincon for water sports, gift shops and galleries, dining and restaurants. Or Light house to watch the surfers or Whale watching during winter season. Plenty to do in Rincon.
Other attractions on west coast are Camuy Caves, Arecibo Observatory, Historic Ponce, Bio-Luminescent bay Guaica.
All towns in Puerto Rico celebrate their patron saint’s festival and these are also great to visit to visit/sample different areas, foods and cultural styles. For calendar of festivals visit this page: Patron Saint Festivals
So much to do with so little time so plan ahead make the best of it, write your bucket list and start checking them off and visit again in a few years; we will be here waiting to service your accommodation needs so you can rest and relax for all your adventures in Puerto Rico and all this tropical island paradise has to offer, make us your summer vacation home; hasta su próxima visita...
