- Wedding: September 2014 - Cadillac mountain
We are staying at the San Juan Water & Beach Club hotel on Isle Verde in Puerto Rico for a week for our honeymoon in September. I have life threatening food allergies, so I’ll need to call ahead to restaurants – does anyone have any suggestions for places in Puerto Rico? We will have a rental car so we aren’t limited by travel. Also, any ideas for fun things in Puerto Rico are welcome too! 🙂

U def have to go to El Yunque rainforest. It is not that far of a drive. You can also book tours ahead of time or Im sure ur hotel could help with that as well. I did a catamaran boat trip where we went snorkeling (very fun) that we booked through our hotel. You could also checkout the bioluminescent bay. Of course u have to explore viejo San Juan. Wear comfy shoes as there are cobblestone streets. Have fun! I LOOOOVE PR & need to go back.

There are a couple of apps that might help you out with your food allergies. They will allow you to show people in Spanish what you’re allergic to.
Good luck! I know traveling with severe food allergies can be difficult, but you can still have an amazing time and eat delicious food!

jessica.lanphere: I totally agree with Chula_784: . Do the rainforest, old San Juan site seeing, and the biobay. FH and I did the full day tour for El Yunque ( day time ) and the biobay kayak (at night). It was awesome. There are outlet shops on one street in Old San Juan. You can find maps of all the OSJ sites online. OSJ is definitely a walking place. It’s small and parking is nearly non- existent.

Yes, definitely go to El Yunque rainforest. You can do hiking tours or ziplining, which were both really fun. I also went to Fajardo and did a zodiak/snorkeling tour which was BEAUTIFUL. We booked all of our activities through the hotel and we also had a rental car which made it really easy.
For San Juan restaurants, there a ton in Old San Juan which are great. I’m not sure what food allergies you have, but my fiancé and I LOVED a restaurant called “Aguaviva” which specializes in seafood but I’m pretty sure they have other stuff too. Good luck!

If you guys plan on going out at night, definetly walk down to the El San Juan, SUPER nice hotel with a Vegas feel. Salsa dancing in the lobby and a club as well (lots of younger folks-took a lot of tequila to go inside but we had som much fun).
Also the rooftop bar on your hotel is really really cute.
