After a great complimentary breakfast at the hotel, we check out and begin our drive to El Yunque Rain Forest that is just southeast of San Juan.
The GPS takes us up this road, and into the Caribbean National Forest, there was the sign saying we were there. Then the road ended as there was a gate and road closed sign across it. So we …
We are up at 6 and on the road before 7, finally on our way to visit Old San Juan. The traffic is light and at Aricibo we go onto the toll highway.

When we got to the San Juan Gate, we went inside the city ...

We found this great hotel at the last moment of our searches. We were going to stay at a big chain, and so glad we stayed here. The room was clean, ceramic floors, clean and stocked washroom. Not to mention a great price. There is free laundry on the 4th floor! Yes, we would stay there again.
Front desk friendly and helpful as to where to park, catch the bus, eat and get to the rain forest..
Breakfast is included, not just a bun and banana, there was cereal, toast to be made, with butter and jam, 3 juices, coffee, fruit and a choice of 2 different buns and a muffin to choose from. We left full.
Nice neighbourhood too!
