We're started in the Capital San Juan and traveling counterclockwise. There is off-season here, so we met really only a few tourists, but we do not mind at all. It's pretty punk all here. Often you have to cross a private property to get to the beaches, which is quite risky in the US. But everyone does it here, so do we. To get to famous places is an adventure, as GPS and maps in guidebooks are useless.

Casa Y Pesca

When we tried to get to some famous cliffs, we found a beautiful beach Casa Y Pesca by luck where we were completely alone. We climbed over it and enjoyed the view of the Northern coast of Puerto Rico.

Playa Mar Chiquita is special in its shape of a shell that is created by the ocean that throws mass of water between cliffs. It's so beautiful!

Arecibo is famous for the world's biggest telescope. The tour starts with a document movie and than you get right above the telescope which is in the middle of rock mountains. Is it familiar to you? What about James Bond movie Golden Eye?

Waterfalls in Gozalandia near the town of San Sebastian is another place that was hard to find. And it would be a shame not to get there. There are two waterfalls actually. You can reach them by maintained paths and stairs, it is very easy and short walk. You can also swim in natural ponds created by waterfalls. Water is not the warmest, but you can survive it.

All beaches on the North coast are perfect for surfing, less for swimming due to big waves. Our favorite beach become Playa Jobos. Also, a surfer's paradise, but thanks to the reef, ok for swimming as well.

Right next to Playa Jobos is Playa El Pozo De Jacinto. It is known for its cliffs with a cave, where the ocean throws a water and a huge geyser appears in front of your eyes.

Cueva Ventana is the first place you can visit only with a guide. At the beginning of the tour, you will get a helmet and a guide will take you through caves to the end to an amazing viewpoint from where you can see the valley. We met some cockroaches, bets and a snake. There are still Taíno drawings on the walls of caves.
