It's finally time to leave, we've been here in Puerto Rico for almost a month and we now have our weather window to sail to the Bahamas. We'll miss this place a lot especially the laid back way of life of the Latin American people, so friendly and welcoming.
We're currently anchored off the town of Boqueron on the western coast and tomorrow morning will up anchor to head for the Bahama islands. Not sure how far we'll go or where we'll make first landfall but really excited to get into some new cruising grounds.
We may not be near internet for a while but we now have a new tuner for our SSB radio which means we should be able to send updates to our cruising log. Just click the link up above and we'll try and keep you posted!

Puerto Rican road trip

Sunday 15th April
Time to get off the boat and do some exploring! We rented a car here in Salinas for $30 a day and hit the road. The interior of Puerto Rico is really stunning with switch back roads over the Rain Forest covered mountains. Our first destination was the Arecibo Observatory, the world's largest single-dish radio telescope.   

Culebra to Puerto Rico

Tuesday April 10th
These have been some of the views from the boat here in Puerto Rico,we really love this place and had forgotten how beautiful the anchorages are. Since leaving Culebra we've been slowly making our way west along the south coast of Puerto Rico,we plan to stop at the town of Selinas to rent a car and explore in land for a couple of days before moving on to the Bahamas.

Culebrita Island - Spanish Virgins

Thursday 29th March
This Beautiful spot is the tiny island of Culebrita off the larger Spanish Virgin island of Culebra. We've been looking forward to returning here as it has one of the most beautiful beaches we've found and hardly anyone around to share it with! There's some great hiking trails through the brush, one of which leads up to an old light house with these spectacular views. We picked up one of the free mooring balls in the northern bay (we're the boat on the left in the photo above) and after catching a spanish mackerel on our way in we enjoyed a tasty grilled fish dinner on our first night.
