Q: We heard that you went to Fajardo, Puerto Rico, isn't it?

A: Yes, I went to Fajardo, Puerto Rico on September 6, 2009. Fajardo, Puerto Rico is about 45 kilometers or 35 minute drive from Carolina, Puerto Rico where the Coral by the Sea Hotel is located. I stayed at Coral by the Sea Hotel during my stay in Puerto Rico from September 4-7, 2009. Please have quarters in your car always especially if you are passing their freeways because you have to pay $1 or 4 quarters in tollbooths. You have to drop 4 quarters at their machine in order to open the gate at the toll plaza.

Q: How's the weather there in Fajardo, Puerto Rico?

A: Well, the weather there is nice when I went there. It was raining during my visit there. The temperature there is 90F during days and 65F during nights. It is also humid there that's why I got sweat there. I brought some towels to wipe-off my sweat and I got wet because it was raining there. In Philippines, it is the same thing because Puerto Rico and Philippines are both located near to equator.

Q: Did you have a tour in Fajardo, Puerto Rico?

A: Yes, I had a tour at Fajardo, Puerto Rico on September 6, 2009 after I visited in Dorado, Puerto Rico. Fajardo, Puerto Rico is also a well-known place for having beaches, hotels, and resorts. It is located at the eastern part of Puerto Rico. Fajardo, Puerto Rico is also a gateway to Culebra Island and Vieques Island by ferry or boat. I went to the beaches there and there's a lighthouse that makes the whole place beautiful even at night. I had a tour there at the downtown area, ocean-side beaches and resorts, lighthouse, pier terminal where you can take a ferry that goes to Culebra Island and Vieques Island, and other historical places there. It was raining there during my visit but I like that place, too.

Q: Is your trip to Fajardo, Puerto Rico memorable?

A: Yes, of coarse. It is so memorable because it was my first time to go there. The weather there is so nice like in Philippines. Although it was raining there, I like this place, too. The people there are also approachable and friendly. I am also learning in speaking Spanish there. Although not all the people in Puerto Rico are fluent in English, they are friendly and approachable as I said. I talked to many people there. The peace and order situation there is also good because the law in Puerto Rico is also the same as in United States of America. Therefore, the area is peaceful.

Q: Do you have a plan to visit again in Fajardo, Puerto Rico in the future?

A: Yes, of course because I was not able to visit the Culebra Island and Vieques Island by ferry. Many of my friends told me that these two islands are beautiful for surfing and scuba diving. I will visit these two islands later when I visited to Fajardo, Puerto Rico later. Also, I would like to visit the other historical places there because I was stranded there during heavy rains and most of the freeways were flooded. The traffic there was so heavy because of the floods.

A: Yes, I will recommend also to anyone to visit in Fajardo, Puerto Rico. If you want to swim in many beautiful beaches, surf, and have scuba diving, Fajardo, Puerto Rico is the best place for you. This place is good also for those who like to see the museums and historical places. You must take a ferry in order to see and visit the Culebra Island and Vieques Island. The area is peaceful, too although it is far from Carolina, Puerto Rico in which I stayed for my vacation at Coral by the Sea Hotel. The people there are nice, friendly, and approachable, too.
