What to do in Vega Alta Puerto Rico

My favorite three things to do are going on a road trip to discover new places, going to the beach and food. Trip to Vega Alta had them all!

Vega Alta is located on the northern coast, near the towns of Morovis, Dorado and Vega Baja. This destination in Puerto Rico is known for the breathtaking Vega Alta Forest, Cerro Gordo beach and some great places to eat some delicious local food.

Cerro Gordo This is a favorite beach among locals, with families often making a full-day excursion out of visiting Cerro Gordo. What’s also cool is that there are a government-run parking lot and facilities including bathrooms and food and drink concessions. There is also a fun restaurant/bar overlooking the beach which has a cool vibe. Sol y Mar.

The beach has delicate white sand, lined with palms and other trees that provide shade, as well as gazebos, picnic tables, and showers. The water is a bright blue with gentle waves and a sandy bottom, making it a perfect bathing beach.

If you follow the road up the hill you’ll reach the campgrounds and eventually the mountain bike trails. This upper section of Cerro Gordo has spectacular views of craggy cliffs framed by the deep blue of the Atlantic.

El Batey the Recuerdos was a place I had wanted to visit for a while. Casual local dining experience yet very special. You buy food per pound or halves, there are no just little bits or portions. The service was very pleasant and nice and to food to die for.

This was a casual trip that made my soul and my belly happy

Moje ulubione trzy rzeczy to podróże w celu odkrycia nowych miejsc, pójście na plażę i jedzenie. Podróż do Vega Alta miała je wszystkie!

Vega Alta znajduje się na północnym wybrzeżu, w pobliżu miast Morovis, Dorado i Vega Baja. To miejsce w Puerto Rico słynie z zapierającego dech w piersiach Lasu Vega Alta, plaży Cerro Gordo i wspaniałych miejsc, w których można zjeść pyszne lokalne jedzenie.

Cerro Gordo Jest to ulubiona plaża wśród mieszkańców, a rodziny często wybierają się na całodniową wycieczkę po zwiedzaniu Cerro Gordo. Fajne jest również to, że istnieje rządowy parking i udogodnienia, w tym łazienki oraz koncesje na jedzenie i napoje. Jest też fajna restauracja / bar z widokiem na plażę, która ma fajną atmosferę. Sol y Mar.

Plaża ma delikatny biały piasek, wyłożony palmami i innymi drzewami, które zapewniają cień, a także altany, stoły piknikowe i prysznice. Woda jest jasnoniebieska z delikatnymi falami i piaszczystym dnem, dzięki czemu jest idealną plażą do kąpieli. Podążając drogą pod górę, dojdziesz do kempingów, a ostatecznie szlaków rowerowych. Ta górna część Cerro Gordo ma spektakularne widoki na skaliste klify otoczone głębokim błękitem Atlantyku.

Cos dla ciała. El Batey the Recuerdos było miejscem, które chciałem odwiedzić od jakiegoś czasu. Dorywczo lokalne doświadczenie kulinarne, ale bardzo wyjątkowe. Kupujesz jedzenie za funt lub połówki, nie ma tylko małych kawałków lub porcji. Obsługa była bardzo przyjemna i miła, a jedzenie za które można umrzeć. To była swobodna podróż, która uszczęśliwiła moją duszę i brzuch.
