    So did you book any of your accommodations in advance or just figure it out as you went along each day?

    If you want to enjoy more, get out of tourist areas. San Juan is much more than Old San Juan and there is a bus system called AMA for 75 cents. Vacía Talega is in Loiza municipality... We have 78 towns. Our Metropolitan Área (San Juan, the old and the modern, and about 7 more towns) is a very modern city. There are many chiper restaurant where workers have lunch or dinner... everyday... and also is real o authentic food...
    And the other thing is that you pronounce Mayagüez pronouncing the "u" ...it's not "Mayaguez" that's the reason of the two points on top of the "u"

    Thank you for the great video. I used it as a guide for my first, recent trip to PR. I absolutely loved PR. I went to some of the same locations, but did not have enough time for all of them. I am already scheduling another trip for next March. I can't wait to get back to those beautiful beaches and the wonderful people of PR. What a paradise.

    To visit are ok but to stay to live are crapp, for Work there they ask people for a bachelor degree to work in Burger King or any job paying $7.25 hr and you have to have someone inside to get good job What the f...... Dumb ass and they driving on the road like dumb waoooooo that Government doesn't have no law at all and no power whatsoever with the people to make the people follow the law but the Puerto Rican people they come to United States and they follow each every laws so what that mean I went to visit my family and it's incredible dirty everywhere people that think they tough con un arma cualquiera y la policia le tiene miedo alos bandidos y nuestra familias sufriendo la delincuencia. We need someone working on the presidential cabinet aqui q gobierne la isla para haber de cual cuero se saca mas correas. PR tierra de la guiritaaa, listeria y primero yo ante q tu. Aquien le gusta el juey sacaoo.

    For the food, find a cheap looking "chin-chorro" with metal sheet roofing, tons of food for low price and watch "Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations" Airbnb for stay, if your budget is tight?, stay away from San Juan tourist areas, you missed Icacos Island, Boqueron Beach, There's also the Camuy Caverns and SETI (worlds largest radio telescope) in Arecibo.

    And yeah ofc don’t expect anything to be cheaper. Everything if anything is more expensive bc our government is corrupt and they don’t like to fix the roads, they put very high taxes.
    We’re a beautiful island with truly beautiful natural sights but just remember that there are a lot of flaws to this islands as well as violence.

    Nice overall trip! I'm always happy to see people visit more then just the touristy area. && I agree that to be able to explore the island we have to spend a little more then we want, but there are a lot of cheaper options around. Like other commenters said, when you visit PR, you gotta befriend some locals they will point you to financially comfortable places.

    Hello jumping places!!!
    I have to say, sadly but true, Puerto Rico 🇵🇷 wich is my land, my home my whole life, ITS TOO EXPENSIVE, i use to watch a lot of videos about traveling and most of the countries are half or quarter cheaper than here in my island, there are a lot of puertorrican that will say is not true or will say anything negative from this fact, i was in boracay and I know you was in el nido and you can do a lot more with the quarter of the money you expended in here, obviously due to many reasons, government issues, taxes, expensive essential services, the import and export issues, poor local agricultural industry, poor or non fishing industry, government makes public transportation the worst and expensive, making people to not provide better or cheaper public transportation as use to find in others countries, most of the biggest issues is the colonial status imposed by USA 🇺🇸 wich is a huge factor of rising cost of life, we had way a lot more like a train system made by french and spain but was destroyed by USA to make people to buy cars, our lands where we grow our food was sell to pharmaceuticals industry brought by USA our fishing industry killed by the government same with the tourism industry that can not provide better prices to the tourist, and lot more, that’s to be honest and to mention few of the biggest problems here and the fact of the expensive cost of life, im so glad to watch your video, and honestly im glad you say the truth about how expensive is traveling here, many people said you better get some local friends but I think is not fair, we should have better prices inexpensive places to eat good food made and harvested localy, not from others countries, im not meaning to down my own island, but i can not lie about it because the thing is that people is traveling the world and find so cheap places and we here in Puerto Rico 🇵🇷 are loosing that tourism.... thanks for coming and sharing your videos about us!!! 😎👍🏼🇵🇷

    Everything we sell in Puerto Rico we can't get from any country. Everything goes first to US and then to the island. So, because of that since everything is imported from US, its expensive for us, so we charge higher.

  • Gogofan240

    The speed limit in PR is 60 on highways and your supposed to drive 10 m/hr under if you’re driving at night.

    • Gogofan240
      Gogofan240 5 months ago

      True that, if you ever visit again try going to Crash Boat Beach. Also did you go to the bio luminescent bay?

    • Jumping Places
      Jumping Places  5 months ago

      Yeah I think I forgot the limit at the time of the vid, 50 still not a nice speed to go into a pothole though

    Renting a car in San Juan, It was almost double. If you land in Aguadilla it would be better. Only issue the flights land real late at night. Cheaper cost for Car rental and AirBNB.

  • David Rosario
    David Rosario 5 months ago

    Man We had a spot for $17 a Night. I rented the Whole House one time for $30 a Day. in Aguadilla on AirBNB and it was closet to the Airport, Also It was about 15 Minutes to Crash Boat. Our Rental Car was also under $25 a day. They took care of us when we landed and we picked up the car and was on the road ASAP, under 15 minutes to our room. I have family out there so getting cheap food was easy. Plus we had Coffee every morning at the Airport in Aguadilla. It was a 30 Minute Drive to Rincon and all the Beaches to see the Sunset. Deals are there and Know where to stay is on the West side. Staying on the East side cost more and is not a safe place at night. Glad you had a great time out there. We did the Sailing Catamaran for about $80 per person. Best 6 hours with unlimited Drinks and Food. Even got a chance to sail the ship myself. It was great.

    YES!! Finally someone who ventures out of the San Juan area!!! Cueva Ventana used to be free until they privatized it. I find the entry fee excessive tbh. Love Playa Buyé and Crash Boat. A couple of weeks ago I went to Vieques and fell in love! You should visit the Bioluminescent Bay there! The tour guide told us it has a Guinness Record for how bright it shines!! Great video! Glad you enjoy the Island I call home! ❤️

    advice, Gustazos and Ofertones, and Clasificados online, all ways to find a place. and rent a car is best and the farry will take your car for less then a rental to Viueques or culebra

    Idk what is “cheap or expensive” but when i went for my first time i honestly thought it was VERY affordable, theres A LOT of cheap places and my wife that’s originally from there took me to a lot of places and we didn’t spend a lot. Now obviously it depends where you go etc but PR is NOT an expensive place. Went with 1,000 dollars and came back with 400 in my pocket now do the math.
