Wikitravellers are, in general, an independent bunch. In keeping with that spirit, there won't be any tour buses, flag or sign waving tour guide leaders or minute-by-minute agenda. Puerto Rico is a reasonably sized island-- you can drive across it in a couple of hours or spend weeks lingering in tiny towns and historic cities. Plan on doing whichever strikes your fancy. Some folks will be renting cars, others setting out on foot or bus or motorbike.

Please also record when you're arriving or leaving, so we know who's around at any given time. If you have an idea or a destination, add it below:
