Puerto Rico is our Hawaii here on the east coast with its great waves, warms beaches, and beautiful culture. Just a short flight from any airport in the northeast region. I began coming to Puerto Rico many years ago with my firends from New Jersey. This was my fourth visit to Puerto Rico, but this time with my family and the Villalobos family.

On this trip we stayed in an apartment located a short walk from the beach in Isabela. We had some rain for the first few days, but that didn't keep the kids from swimming in the pool. For the most part, we had perfect weather through the week. We visited many beaches like Jobos, Crashboat, and Rincon where we went surfing, swimming, snorkling, and enjoyed the warm sand and sun. We also took a trip to the El Yunque National Forest (Tropical Rain Forest) on the eastern side of Puerto Rico.

We surfed some fun 3-5ft waves in Rincon, Jobos, and Isabela.
