Puerto Rico - El Yunque and San Juan

Going to be staying at the Wyndham Rio Mar in a couple weeks and will have a car. Looking for suggestions on restaurants in El Yunque area close to the hotel and in San Juan. Will probably drive into San Juan a couple of times for dinner and possibly for lunch. Want to avoid the true 'tourist traps", food and atmosphere are the priority.

  1. just got back from San Juan and will be posting when I have a moment but I will say I had a memorable meal at Marmalade in Old San Juan and the setting was exquisite

      Some years ago I had a lovely brunch, or maybe lunch, at Hacienda GripiƱas in Jayuya. Beautiful drive through the mountains to an old coffee plantation.
