Around Puerto Rico

An interesting round trip through the east half of the island can be done by a series of públicos from San Juan-Río Grande-Luquillo-Fajardo-Humacao-Yabucoa- Guayama- Cayey-Aibonito-Barranquitas-Bayamón-San Juan. If travelling by car, a variant between San Juan and El Yunque takes you on Route 187 from Isla Verde, outside San Juan, to Loíza along a stretch of the north coast, which includes the Piñones State Forest, a sand-blown and palm-lined road. There are some huge resorts and golf clubs in the Río Grande area.

A round trip through the west half of the island would take in Ponce, the second city (reached by motorway from San Juan via Caguas), Guánica, Parguera, San Germán, Boquerón, Mayagüez (the third city), Aguadilla, Quebradillas and Arecibo, with side trips to the Maricao State Forest and fish hatchery, the Río Abajo State Forest and Lake Dos Bocas, the pre-Columbian ceremonial ball-park near Utuado, and the Arecibo observatory.
