    Traveling While Black

    Exploring Old San Juan was a blend of history and modern flair: Streets, forts, and colorful buildings tell stories of diverse cultures. As a black traveler, those walls spoke to me.

    Condado Beach – this was my slice of paradise. Sand, sun, and relaxation without a care – Good vibes. I felt safe chilling solo in the mornings and at night.

    Recharging at the AC Hotel was essential. Modern vibes, ocean views and a rooftop pool. The hotel restaurant and wine bar served local flavors of Puerto Rican cuisine that left me craving more.

    La Placita is where I went for the nightlife, recommended by the hotel staff – they said it was a must that I check it out. Nights are alive with energy from reggaeton beats pumping from the bars, clubs and lounges. Locals and travelers, all dancing and laughing. As a black traveler, I blended right in and was able to let my guard down.

    Playita Del Condado Beach is one of my favorite beaches in San Juan, Puerto Rico. It is a perfect mix of local and tourist life. A perfect destination for a relaxing day at the beach or a prime location for water sports, you can spend the entire day here. AirBnB Experiences is an excellent resource for scouting daily activities at a convenient price point. You can set your filters to decide how much coin to want to spend then enjoy activities such as snorkeling, parasailing and kayaking. There are many hotels in the area such as the Hilton and Holiday Inn which pair well with familiar American food like Denny’s which can be found in the area. There are also many local vendors selling island favorites such as pinchos (kebabs), empanadas (beef patties) or other small appetizers and local juices. Conveniently located near the highway, this beach is easily accessible by rental, scooter, bike or Uber. Not fluent in Spanish? No worries. Due to its high tourist population, many of the vendors and instructors speak English but if you happen to stumble upon the few who don’t, there’s always somewhere near to lend a broken palabra.
