I've had Puerto Rico on my mind lately. I can't explain why. Maybe it's the slammin' good deals Travelzoo keeps sending me for this sandy locale. As a former volleyball player, I seem to hear Puerto Rico come up a lot in conversation, mainly because it's pretty common for American volleyball players to play professionally in Puerto Rico. It always sounded like such a good gig to me: poolside in the morning, volleyball in the afternoon, beach in the evening. While I think it's safe to say I won't be playing pro volleyball in PR any time soon, I'd love to visit there and walk around Old Town San Juan, eat some amazing fresh produce and, yes, take a dip (or two or three or four) in the warm Caribbean Sea.
