A Road Trip in Western Puerto Rico!
|Summertime, in Rincon, checked the beach bars
and nothing's happening. Not even a volleyball game on the beach today. What
to do? Why of course, do A Road Trip. Gathered up a few people looking for
some low key adventure and headed for the mountains! Went for a quick route to Hwy
2, then buzzed along to the Moca turn off and soon we were on little windy roads heading

of the road trip. We'll be back!
||The crew is tired of the mountains and heads
to the coast for the short trip back to Rincon. Sights like this abound on the way
back. Would you like a close up of this beautiful coast? Scroll down one row.
||Here are three intrepid young ladies exploring
the very coast seen above.
Intrepid? Well, they
are just about 50 feet from the road and the car, but Puerto Rico is an easy place to
