Traveling Gluten Free in Puerto Rico
I recently took a vacation in Humacao, Puerto Rico after visiting this beautiful US territory for the first time last year. I stayed at Las Palmas Resort and I enjoyed my stay so much, I’ve already booked another week there for next year! I can’t wait to go back. Listen in to today’s gluten free travel episode where I talk about my experience in Puerto Rico, fun things to do while you’re there, and, of course, amazing gluten free restaurants to eat at when you’re in Puerto Rico.
Traveling to Puerto Rico
You can easily get a plane ticket in and out of the main airport in San Juan. And because Puerto Rico is a US territory, you don’t need a passport, but you will need a Real ID. Also, you don’t need to exchange currency as Puerto Rico is a territory and uses US dollars. It’s an easy trip to get to a tropical island that you don't need a passport to travel to if you’re a US resident!
Beaches in Puerto Rico
One of the best geologic features and most relaxing activity is to visit a local beach. Luquillo Beach is beautiful and there are restaurants and facilities (including showers) nearby. You can rent a beach chair for $25 for the day, and buy a coconut water or coco loco to sit and relax on the beach, read a book, swim, snorkel or people watch.
Where to Stay in Puerto Rico
I stayed at Park Royal Homestead, and I really enjoyed my stay at their resort! I had a two bedroom condo, with a full kitchen, right next to the pool. The resort offers free shuttles anywhere in the resort, including all restaurants and their own private beach
Make sure that you’re following the 3-1-1 TSA rule for liquids if you’re packing liquids in your carry-on. I recently got stuck throwing out shampoo and conditioner because I had too many liquids with my medicine. Now, however, I carry a medical bag so my medicine that’s considered a liquid doesn’t count towards my 3-1-1 (see medical bag link below) .
