PR probably still recovering pretty hard from the hurricanes. Definitely do your DD. Cuba is supposed to be cool though.

Just got back from PR on Tuesday after spending 6 days there. It's beautiful and San Juan is fully functional. Local businesses are suffering because there is a a lack of tourist visiting so they were extremely friendly and welcoming while I was there. I would definitely recommend it.

PR a few years back. Was ok but nothing great, I would imagine they are still recovering. Cuba 1yr ago ... Great trip (harder to do now) but certainly not a relaxing getaway. The cultural experience is great and I would highly recommend it, but to give you an idea we had hot showers only one day and that was with 4 nights at hotel national. I hope you (or someone in your party) speaks fleuent Spanish for Cuba and be prepared to be overcharged.

Depends what you want to do, was in PR on christmas. Still a lot of damage but the turist areas are for the most part operating and functional. There 108 beaches in the island you can always find a good one to chill out on.

^Stay at an airbnb in Cuba and avoid all this nonsense and overpricing

Thanks all

PR in the touristy areas have recovered and should be fine. San Juan up north is where the majority of the population is - major hotel chains and beach front- SE side is where many PR keep their beach homes and visit on the weekends, SE has some beaches and best diving (mostly wall diving, no shore) and NW/Rincon is where the expats all live and best surfing is.

Spent a week in Havana in December. Book everything before you go as most is blocked once in country if you pay with a US card. I did Sheraton 2 days, AirBnB 4 days. Get off the path and you’ll save some cash. All in all I think I was in $1200 total
