Luquillo Puerto Rico Picture Tour

Are you sick of my pictures yet?

Well, since I’ve been posting all those pictures of US Virgin Islands, I thought it was only fair that I show you a picture tour of our town. You know as they say: “there is no place like home.”

We like to travel and we like to experience new places but I think you’ll see why we love it here in Luquillo Puerto Rico. It’s beautiful, it’s warm, the people are friendly, and I am so very, very partial to the 12-miles of beach front we have. Just sayin’…

Without further ado, here is Luquillo Puerto Rico:

Playa Azul Luquillo Puerto Rico
Back to the beach – did I mention I love our beach? Playa Azul.

Say whatever you like but I love our town! Rainforest, amazing beaches, great weather, and friendly people – what else could you possibly ask for?

OK, OK – you might argue that there are even better beaches than ours and maybe there are. But, I can walk outside and walk in either direction for – literally – miles! and that’s with my feet in the water AND lots of shade from the palm trees. So, I’ll take it!

I hope you enjoyed my little picture tour of Luquillo. I’m going to get back to providing you more info about the USVI in my next post.

Cheers!

  1. Thanks for the pictures! I will be staying in Liquillo for a couple of days in February. It looks absolutely beautiful!

  2. That sure looks like a piece of paradise. All the more that, except for the shot by the falls, there are no people in the other photos… So it is just Joanna/Eve, and Tim/Adam. Just stay away from those apples and do not listen to snakes, and you will be fine. 🙂
    Seriously though, did you take these pictures at 4 AM, or has everyone moved to the mainland already??

    • Bhahahaha. Yeah, except for the summer months, when the beaches get busy on the weekends, it’s like this here all the time. Very few people around, lovely place. We have the beaches pretty much to ourselves right now 🙂 All shots were in the middle of the day. The only reason the El Yunque pic had so many people is because it was on a weekend and a some sort of school tour bus arrived with a bunch of kids. They all did the same hike we did. LOL.

  3. Love your pictures and I’m certainly not tired of them! Have you found it to be humid in Luquillo? We stayed in Rio Grande on year for about 8 days in December and it was extremely humid. We certainly enjoyed hiking in the El Yunque and went those same falls. It looks like there were a lot of people there in your photo. Hope you both are doing well!

    • Hi Barbara,
      Thanks 🙂 I don’t think Luquillo itself is any more humid than anywhere else in PR, we are on an island after all. But El Yunque, is a wet forest, so it does rain there just about every day and so it does get humid around the forest areas. But in general, we’re from the Great Lakes and it’s just as humid there as it is here. In fact, I just looked it up and we have 86 deg with 78% humidity (it’s been raining today) and Michigan has 38 deg with 75% humidity. Which would you rather have? ha ha ha
