20 things to do

All Places Puerto Rico

El Conquistador Resort & Golden Door Spa

Highly over-priced (min $200/night after the added fees), this resort-style accommodation is so far removed from anything else that you are forced to eat on site or drive for a relatively far distance. The service from the staff can be bad at times, and a overwhelming aura of apathy exudes from many there, especially at the front desk. Check in/out is horrifically slow, especially if you feel the need to actually debate the random charges appearing on your bill that shouldn't be there. There are many other options in the area with equally nice views at a more realistic price.

About Fajardo

Known as "the city that guards the sun of the Caribbean" (La Metrópolis del Sol Naciente), Fajardo is on the east coast of Puerto Rico, north of Ceiba and east of Luquillo.

One of the main attractions is the Bio-Luminescent Bay. A 1.5 hour tour, you will kayak in through a Mangrove forest at night to the bay, where luminescent plankton glow bright blue every time the water is disturbed. Most tours cost $45, and combo packages with tours of El Yunque Rainforest are available and quite a good full-day trip.
