D'frozz, only ice cream in vieques, puerto rico, ice cream on the island of vieques, traveling with kids, family travel
Of course we couldn’t say no to stopping for ice cream.

Restaurante El Hamburguer, Hamburgers by the beach, Escambron Beach, Hamburgers in Puerto Rico, traveling with kids, family travel

Balneario El Escambron Beach, family beach in san juan, puerto rico, traveling with kids, family travel
A trip to the Caribbean means water, at least for our family. We pack just one or two outfits for the trip and plan on spending the entire time in our swimsuits covered in sand. We might leave for an hour or two to get some food, but all that is second to jumping over waves, digging holes in...
