Is it Puerto Rico?

You're right, Ewe, it is San Juan, Puerto Rico. I've never been there, but I will be going to Puerto Rico for a week and a half and then a cruise for a week for my summer vacation. Can't wait!

Puerto Rico is a place I am dying to visit...I wonder what airlines go there and if we have any points!!!

Gabe, the pictures are so gorgeous! Let me know if these destinations are kid-friendly.

Diana,

I've never been to Puerto Rico. My father who lives in Kansas City, MO has a business trip there for about a week, so I thought I would meet up with my parents there and then take a cruise to some Caribbean Islands with them.

My ticket from Washington to Puerto Rico is only $277 roundtrip on United. Tickets are cheap to Puerto Rico because it is a hub for airlines and for cruises.

According to the Lonely Planet guidebook, Puerto Rico would be kid-friendly and a good place to bring your family.
