We took the Monday after our wedding off then headed back to work for a week before leaving for our 2-week long honeymoon. With all the wedding planning stress, it was nice to have that week to pack & prepare for our trip! We flew from Orlando to Puerto Rico, where we spent 7 days in Casa Cubuy, the most fabulous little bed & breakfast atop a mountain in the El Yunque Rainforrest.
Every morning, we would wake up to a breakfast of freshly picked fruits, a variety of fresh squeezed juices & delicious local cuisine. We would eat family style with the other 10-15 guests while looking out into the rainforrest. There were hammocks everywhere, and no need for AC, due to the altitude, so we slept with the balcony doors open & even had a baby iguana visitor at one point!
Fun Fact: You don’t need bug spray in the rainforrest either, thanks to a special tree frog that keeps the area mosquito free!
We traveled all over the island, eating our body weight in beans, rice & plantains, hiking through the rainforrest to find waterfalls, salsa dancing, touring the Bacardi distillery, visiting the beaches, exploring historic Old San Juan, and even drove through John’s mom’s hometown, Guaynabo! Here are a few pictures & a little driving tour video from our amazing trip:
Our Puerto Rican holiday was amazing – there are even multiple vegan restaurants there! We ate enough beans, rice & plantains for a small army then came home to enjoy the last few days of our honeymoon relaxing together. We miss that place a lot & hope to return soon with an extra little passenger & maybe even the whole family!
