A Quick Get Away to San Juan, Puerto Rico!



 Quick little get away.
 
 
I was tired of this cold weather so I decided to get away for a few days to somewhere warm. Why not San Juan? I stayed at the San Juan Water Beach Blue Hotel.
 
 
 
 
 
Even though it rained at some point during every day I was there, it was still much warmer than Virginia during this time of year. High 80's, who wouldn't want that?  Even though it was so warm, there was still a sense of Christmas in the air which was evident by this fun display in the lobby!
 

 
 
Since it was pretty rainy there, I didn't get as much pool time or beach time in as I would have liked. There was a rooftop bar that was nice to have a few drinks at (good thing it was covered). 
 
 
I appreciated the rooftop bar at the San Juan Water Beach Blue Hotel, but there seemed to be much more to do over at  the El San Juan Resort and Casino  which was within walking distance. I had a relaxing spa treatment at the spa and  tried my luck at the resort casino! I was happy to have won some money at the casino, which paid for a great dinner at a nice steakhouse that evening!
 
 
The next day the sun did come out just enough to enjoy the pool for a bit and a walk on the beach!
 
Amazing pools!
 


                                                                   Beautiful Beaches!


What's the weather like were you live? Do you ever feel that you want to go to a different climate? If so, where would you choose to go?

  1. That looks like a beautiful resort. I love to travel and since we have lived overseas, we have enjoyed many remote locations on our travels. I'm looking forward to a 10 day Caribbean cruise after the Dopey Challenge!

  2. That looks stunning. Perfect getaway for this time of year! Currently the weather in Houston is cold and overcast...hoping to see an upturn in the temps soon. I think I would love to be in the Bahamas right now... I've never been before and I bet it's nice and warm!

  3. So jealous of your little getaway! It looks gorgeous there! I'm in North Carolina so the weather isn't too bad yet, but still not as good as San Juan :)

  6. what a nice little getaway! I live in LA and the weather has been cool, but it's supposed to get up into the 70's this weekend with the santa ana winds. It's just so unpredictable. But with that come incredibly DRY weather. I'd love a little tropical-ness in my life right now. I might need to break out my humidifier. :)

  7. Wow, what an amazing resort. Must have been quite the getaway. It's not that cold where I live, but it rains all the time. I'd love to go somewhere with snow so I can finally have a white christmas. :)
