    Sounds like you guys are settling in. We’ve always encountered very friendly people in PR and have never felt unsafe. We stayed maybe twice for one day each in SJU as our travel day was long so I can’t say for the safety there but everywhere else we’ve been, everyone has been lovely. Is your condo a new construction…is that why no screens on the windows yet?

      Hi Barbara. Yes it is “new” construction in the sense that we are the first occupants. The building was actually finished in 2009 but the original developer went bankrupt shortly thereafter…

    CostCo (in Caguas or Carolina) sells Coconut oil, maple syrup, and a few more of your pantry staples. Sam’s Club selection is disappointing and we have not gone back.

      Alas, Costco is too far for us here on the west coast. Thank goodness for Amazon subscribe and save! :)

    David i disagree a little about driving in Puerto Rico. I find driving in New York City, Rome Italy and Mexico City Mexico drive worst the Puerto Rico.

      Shortly after I wrote this post, we watched a documentary about Iran with the boys. They said wow that looks crazier than PR! That should be the highest difficulty level in our hypothetical video game! :)

    The recently completed PR shop at SJU has ‘Forteza Caribbean Chocolate’, in a cute tin… & the 80% dark chocolate is 100% PR cacao. Discovered it on my flight out in early May 2016.
