If you’re anything like us, you love a good photo. The problem with taking photos on vacation, is that often times you don’t know where the best places are before you get there. Or that all the good places are over saturated with tourist. Then, you have to spend hours waiting for tourists to finish touristing before you can do your photo ops. So here is a list of awesome Puerto Rico stops for content creators.
The Best Stops in Puerto Rico for Content Creators
If you haven’t heard of it, it’s a tiny (as in narrow) two story house which is well known for its narrow-ness. We did not even know this existed, but were so glad when we found it. It’s picturesque, out of the way, and a nice walk around that area. We had to wait for two other parties to take their picture, but it was certainly well worth it. It’s in Old San Juan, and if you google it it should come up. It was raining when we went, so maybe it will be a bit more crowded when you go.
Senor Paleta is a small shop in old San Juan, with the biggest, and wildest variety of Paletas I have ever seen in my life. A Paleta is essentially a frozen popsicle, but it’s usually made of fruit and in this case, made locally and with great ingredients. We tried two different flavors and could not have been more pleased. Full disclaimer: I regret not buying two.
Old San Juan is super picturesque and even though it can be very crowded on a cruise ship day, if you’re patient enough, you can get a really cool photo. We waited for some cars to pass and set up the camera across the street. Then with a clicker, we got this really cool photo. Since it is a well transited area full of businesses, you’re usually safe.
Though on the other side of the island, if you’re visiting the south of Puerto Rico, this is a great stop for content creators. The town of Ponce is beautiful, but aside from this the cathedral is very well kept. It’s a colonial building in the center of town and it makes for wonderful photos.
Tip: the south of the island is much hotter than the north, so if you do plan to go there, wear light clothes.
Fortaleza Street is that street in old San Juan that used to be covered with umbrellas. Now, it sports a giant Puerto Rican Flag. It’s also in the tourist area, so you might have to wait for people to take photos, but in my opinion, it is well worth the wait. If you visit old San Juan, chances are you will be around here anyway.
Let’s face it, Puerto Rico is a beautiful island. I could sit here and tell you that this beach is better than that beach, but the truth is, I have yet to find an ugly beach in Puerto Rico. I am a firm believer that creativity can be found anywhere. In the case of this island, I found it in every single beach!
My favorite beach: Playa Sucia, in the south west.
The Rooftop at Verdanza Hotel
Verdanza Hotel is simply amazing and we loved our stay there. I could write an entire blog post for why this place rocks, but aside from being an overall fantastic place from which to enjoy San Juan, it’s a great place for photo taking. They also have two restaurants and one cafe on site, so if you’re feeling like staying in, it’s ideal. The rooms are also GREAT for photos, but the rooftop (which is by the gym) makes for a fantastic view!
Overall, I think the entire island is a paradise for content creators. These are only some of our favorite places.
