A natural lazy river on Guilligan’s Island, Puerto Rico

It was one of those drives. You know–the two hours drives that magically turn into four hour drives after your GPS reroutes you through the smallest towns and biggest mountains.

After getting lost in the mountains in the heart of Puerto Rico, finally arriving to Guilligan’s island was such a relief. Although we were only able to go there for 3 short hours (the last ferry back to the mainland is at 5), my friend Isabel and I were able to enjoy these mangroves. I did a bit of snorkeling through the mangroves, which was slightly difficult on the way upstream, definitely more relaxing on the way back. It is definitely a must-see in Puerto Rico if you are near Guánica.

We went to Guánica one other time during my two weeks in Puerto Rico to go scuba diving off the wall, but it’s safe to say we took the correct way there, cutting the drive almost in half.

Sometimes you have to trust a map over a GPS.
