Known as the "Land of Giants" in honor of its celebrated residents--including poet Julia de Burgos and baseball player Roberto Clemente--Carolina makes a living as both an industrial center and a hub of tourism.
On the 17th (Fri), look for gifts at Coqui International, then delve into the lush surroundings at El Yunque Rain Forest, and then revel in the low prices at Trollbeads. Here are some ideas for day two: enjoy the sand and surf at Luquillo Beach and then buy something for everyone on your list at Plaza Las Americas.

To see where to stay, other places to visit, maps, and more tourist information, read Carolina online trip maker.

Newark, USA to Carolina is an approximately 7.5- hour combination of flight and car. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Newark to Carolina due to the time zone difference. Plan for much hotter temperatures traveling from Newark in April, with highs in Carolina at 87°F and lows at 75°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 18th (Sat) early enough to travel to Isla de Vieques.

Isla de Vieques

Isla de Vieques ©
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.
Visit Sun Bay Beach and La Chiva for some beach relaxation. For shopping fun, head to Fish Market or Isla Vida. Next up on the itinerary: view the masterpieces at Siddhia Hutchinson Fine Art Gallery, stroll through Media Luna Beach, take some stellar pictures from Puerto Ferro Lighthouse, and explore the galleries of Serenity Point Yoga & Visionary Arts Space.

To find photos, maps, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the Isla de Vieques day trip site.

Do a combination of car and flight from Carolina to Isla de Vieques in an hour. Alternatively, you can do a combination of car and ferry; or do a combination of shuttle and ferry. In April, daytime highs in Isla de Vieques are 85°F, while nighttime lows are 75°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 21st (Tue) early enough to travel to Culebra.

With much of Culebra a nature refuge, the tropical island has been protected from overdevelopment, chain hotels, and the cruise set.
Kick off your visit on the 22nd (Wed): kick back and relax at Tamarindo Beach, then stop by Zinkowski Art Studio, and then enjoy the sand and surf at Zoni Beach. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 23rd (Thu): stroll through Flamenco Beach.

Plan my trip to Culebra with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Traveling by combination of car and flight from Isla de Vieques to Culebra takes 2.5 hours. Alternatively, you can ride a ferry. April in Culebra sees daily highs of 85°F and lows of 76°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
