Our home base for the week was the Marriott Resort in the Condado district of San Juan. The resort was in a great central location to shops, restaurants and was a five minute drive to Old San Juan. The beach was steps away and the views were spectacular. My feet were grateful for the soft sand after a day of travel and the beach was picture perfect. The ocean temperature was just right, it was calm as a lake in the morning and a little wild with the afternoon storms. At night the rustling palm trees lulled us to sleep after a long day in the sun. Despite all that you expect from a tropical paradise, the thing that caught our attention the most was the beautiful nature of the light in the tropics. From morning to noon everything was bathed in a golden cast and at night the most beautiful royal purple I'd ever seen crept over everything. The sunrises and sunsets did not disappoint, hopefully these photos will give a glimpse at the incredible show the Carribean put on for us every day.
