Enjoy a walk!
Early morning and mostly everything closed meant that we had all the colorful streets for ourselves. The weather was enjoyable and we decided to take a walk and take in the delight of all the colouñrful streets and old spanish architecture.PIN IT!
Time for a treat
After we walked and took pictures in some of the most beautiful corners we decided that we needed a break and what better place to go that The Bombonera. This cafe was established in 1902 and even though it had some renovations done is still has its charm. If you ever visit you need to order the mayorcas. They prepare the mayorca in different ways, plain, with cheese, cheese and ham you name it! Oh and freshly squeezed orange juice and coffee , Yumm!
Now that our break was over we decided to go shopping. I was surprised that even though I had lived in Puerto Rico for a long time there were stores that I had never visit. The one that caught my attention the most was Ole. This store is dedicated to make custom hats and it was amazing to see the variety that they work on. This store was filled with intricate figurines on every corner enough to keep your eyes busy and happy.
Shopping spree done! and we needed to hydrate so we stopped for a coconut mojito and some sample platters full of island delicacies.PIN IT!
Our day ended but it was full of great memories. This vacation has really made me appreciate more what I always had at my finger tips. I truly encourage everyone to enjoy a day as a tourist and you will see the beauty of your home town.
