Fajardo is a small city and municipality in Puerto Rico (U.S.) located in the east region of the island, bordering the Atlantic Ocean, north of Ceiba and east of Luquillo. Get outdoors at El Yunque Rain Forest and Waterskiing & Jetskiing. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Luquillo Beach and Balneario Luquillo. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Fajardo: Punta Tuna Lighthouse (in Maunabo), Estudio de Arte Samuel Lind (in Loiza) and El Yunque National Forest (Cascada La Mina (La Mina Falls) & Yokahu Observation Tower). There's much more to do: add some adventure to your tour with a kayaking and canoeing tour, step off the mainland to explore Icacos Island, wander the wide-open spaces of Carabali Rainforest Park, and get interesting insight from Tours.

For sixty years until 2003, most of the Isla de Vieques was closed off to the public, with the US Navy using the island's beaches and surrounding waters for drills and testing of new military machinery, such as bombs.
You've now added Caracas Beach to your itinerary. On the 7th (Wed), take an in-depth tour of Fortin Conde de Mirasol Museum, steep yourself in history at Isabel Segunda, and then enjoy the sand and surf at Caracas Beach. Here are some ideas for day two: enjoy the sea views from Puerto Ferro Lighthouse, delve into the distant past at El Hombre de Puerto Ferro, and then kick back and relax at Sun Bay.
