annaHi:) I’m Anna, I’m 19 years old and currently an Au Pair in Guadeloupe. I’ve been in the Caribbean for 6 months and can’t get enough of it. I will get one month off and would like to see more islands. My plan is to visit Puerto Rico, Jamaika and Cuba:)

I was there for 10 days in May. I loved Old San Juan and the feel of the city. I didn't feel unsafe although I was traveling with my sister. We took the ferry to Vieques and did some snorkeling and stayed there a couple of nights. I plan on returning someday since there are so many things to do and see!
I went to Puerto Rico solo and felt completely safe. I stayed in Santurce (not sure if that's spelled correctly but it's close). It's a bedroom community in San Juan. I felt completely safe the entire time. I did a tour of old San Juan and our tour guide was an architect there. I learned so much and toured a lot of great buildings. I didn't get to do my ocean excursions because of high tide warnings.
Puerto Rico is amazing. It was my first solo trip and I 100% recommend it. Although English isn’t the primary language, most people speak it basically fluently or understand enough to help you out, especially in tourist areas. It’s not super expensive, but not as cheap as I assumed it would be, prices were typically only a bit cheaper than where I live (NJ) in San Juan. I never felt in danger anywhere on the island really and the locals are some of the friendliest people I’ve ever met.
I absolutely love Puerto Rico. I always tell people, rent a car and go to all parts of the Island; there’s much to do outside of San Juan and the resort stretch (though Old San Juan/San Juan has its own charm!) The Caribbean coast is lovely too! The locals are kind and helpful, there’s culture and history, the food is delicious and it’s safe for solo travelers.
