Near San Juan we booked a surf lesson at Playa Maderas. Unfortunately we were not very talented, but had a great time and the class was really cheap. Our teacher spoke excellent English and tried hard to get us stand up on the board! After this, our local Toña beer on the beach tasted even nicer!

Tip from Renee:

In San Juan there are many nice restaurants along the boulevard and the beach, but if you want something different, join a local fisherman and catch your own meal. Restaurants also prepare what you’ve caught and fish doesn’t get any better or fresher than this!
