moving to puerto rico with kids

Depending on their age and dispositions, moving to a new and unfamiliar place like Puerto Rico can be very stressful for children.  Our oldest is sociable and thrives on interaction with others, so after the initial excitement of the move wore off, he was in a bit of a funk because he

Puerto rico debt crisis

afraid to move to puerto rico because of the debt crisis?

I’ve been reluctant to discuss the Puerto Rican government debt crisis and it’s effects because, frankly, there’s really not much for me to say.  We’ve noticed little that’s changed in the year since we’ve arrived.  If anything, we seem to see MORE economic activity around our neck of the woods, with new restaurants

day 4 in puerto rico

We had no idea where we were going to sleep.  Our three day stay in another unit in our complex was coming to an end.  Both it and the other VRBO unit in our complex were booked.  There was a Holiday Inn nearly 30 minutes away, but
