Preparing for Peru: Postponed

Unfortunately, my trip to Peru has been postponed since there weren’t enough participants on that departure. Hopefully, I’ll get to go sometime next year.

I had set aside a large chunk of my vacation days for it, and since I can’t carry them over to next year, I had to find something else. So my wife and I are going island-hopping in the Caribbean. A few days in Puerto Rico, and then a cruise to the US Virgin Islands, Antigua, Dominica, and Grenada. I’ve got bird guides lined up in the latter two. Anyone have suggestions/tips for the others?

    Too bad about the trip to Peru, but it seems you have definitely salvaged your vacation days. I went to Puerto Rico a couple of years ago and really enjoyed two places in particular. There is a rain forest called El Yunque located towards the eastern end of the island; I stayed in a “eco-lodge” and had a blast, lots of interesting birds and other wildlife and environments to see. I also spent a couple days on a small island off the eastern coast of Puerto Rico, it was called Vieques; again, I had a blast there. I would definitely recommend either or both locations as great destinations. Have fun!

    Hope you get a good trip. It sounds very nice indeed and something your wife will enjoy. I also hope to see you (both?) next year in Peru. Did you see Rick Wright’s trip reports from the trip you were going to do?

    Let’s try again in 2011 or 2012.

    Thanks, Gunnar. Oh yes, I saw Rick’s reports. Looks incredible. I very much look forward to it.
