We have planned a very last minute trip w/ our two older kids to Puerto Rico over the holidays. anymore. We love the beach, but also would like to get out and explore without constantly relying on buses/taxis for restaurants, sightseeing, etc. Which area Isla Verde or Condado would you recommend and why? Thanks so much!!

Isla Verde is a great area to stay at, but its not the best for snorkeling. The best snorkeling can be found of the east coast town of Fajardo. There are 2 islands named Culebra & Vieques that have great snorkeling conditions. You can take a cheap ferry ride from Fajardo. Also the smaller cays of Palomintio & Icacos have great snorkeling but there are not ferries, you can pay a boater to take you over.

The Isle Verde beaches are superior to the ones on the Condado.
Ilse Verde is much more spread out and family oriented. The Condado is closer to Old San Juan and the many restaurants, stores and scenic attractions located there.

When I travel to PR, my wife and I stay on the Condado (Condado Plaza, La Concha, or Marriott) as we visit Old San Juan often.

Distant attractions are accessible from both locations.

Hope this helps.
