3. Travel with a tour group, instead of alone.
I was hesitant to do anything with a tour group because it seemed expensive and due to being vegan, but it would be worth the expenses.
First off, the traffic is a hot mess. We almost got into a few car accidents. No, they weren’t people cutting us off with a turn. Instead, a white pickup was inches away from ramming into my shotgun door. I was looking forward to being in the hospital for the remainder of the trip.
Then, GPS maps are extremely outdated. If you want to follow them precisely, prepare to drive through some gates, the wrong way on a one way, and into several houses.
Plus, even if you want to use instructions whatsoever, many of the tourist sites don’t have real addresses. Instead of 123 Park Blvd, you would get something like F9V5+385, Arecibo, 00612, Puerto Rico. That’s the address to Cuerva del Indio (Indian Cave). Good luck putting that into your navigational app.
