Orlando is a favorite destination of my family. We travel there three to four times a year because it is about a six hour drive (ten if you add the bathroom and snack breaks)....
See Puerto Rico
Last year was my first visit ever visit to Puerto Rico. I had thought about visiting before, had lots of friends tell me that it was amazing but for some reason, a visit just never worked out in my travels. Until last year.
Puerto Rico was one of the Ports of Call (stops) that our cruise ship was making during our week long cruise. I began to research much like I do before taking any vacation. The first thing that I did was visit SeePuertoRico.com and then start planning my trip.
