8: While waiting for the tour bus to El Yunque to pick us up, we spent some time at the pool! | Clearly all Megan needs to enjoy her vacation is a good book! (or 7!)

14: Fun on the trail!
16: The best part of the hike... La Mina Falls!
17: After hiking through El Yunque, we went kayaking in the Bioluminescent Bay in Las Croabas, Fajardo. We kayaked down a mangrove channel that was filled with the sounds of coqui frogs and iguanas climbing in the trees. Soon we arrived in Laguna Grande. It was one of the most amazing things we saw on the entire trip!! The Bio Bay glows in the dark due to the Pyrodinium Bahamense, a microscopic plankton capable of producing natural light when disturbed in the water.
18: We Love the Beach! It was right across the street from the hotel!
20: Good times at the Bacardi Rum Factory Tour!
21: Mom reunited with an old friend during the tour and we had a lot of fun posing with the liquor bottles!
22: Dinner in Old San Juan after the hunt for souvenirs. This was right before the great search for el supermercado.
23: After the great search for el supermercado, we were very tired. Instead of a big night out on the town, we opted for beer and dessert (and coffee for Mom!) in the pizzeria downstairs. Yum!

25: Megan and her new best friend, Coco!
26: Girls Night Out | El San Juan Hotel and Casino | Post wipe out but still looking good!
