Puerto Rico was a first in many ways: not only did I book the flight on a whim with low expectations, but it was also my first mother-daughter trip! Luckily Puerto Rico surprised me and I was truly able to experience it like a local by spending the week driving around the island rather than sticking to San Juan and the surrounds. For those of you that are interested in seeing what Puerto Rico has to offer outside San Juan and the beach (I did those as well), read on. This is Puerto Rico, off the beaten path.

Monterey County is one of those quintessential California areas that most Californians visit at least once, but apparently, I suck at exploring my own backyard. Well, the Monterey tourism website is all about grabbing life by the moments, which is why I’ve decided to spontaneously visit Monterey later this month! #GrabYourMoment, they said, so I listened. In the meantime, I couldn’t let my research go to waste so read to discover why Monterey should be your new favorite travel destination.

My trip to Puerto Rico was booked on an unexpected whim, thanks to an amazing flight deal. I’d never had any real desire to go, but when I saw a flight for $100 round-trip, my mom and I couldn’t resist.

Although my expectations were initially a bit low, I took the advice of some fellow travel bloggers and opted for a road trip around the island rather than sticking to the well-known tourist spots. I was impressed by how much the country has to offer both on and off the beaten path. These are the five things not to miss in Puerto Rico.
