The weather was so depressing at the end of October. I decided to go to my new friend the computer. After looking up travel guide on the Internet up came Puerto Rico average teem24c Hotel Gloria Palace . Said to my darling wife what do you think she had one look at it and said that is for us. Booked it for 11Th of November for one week. Arranged a flight with Air Lingus after a couple of weeks of we went with bags packed just like a couple of teenagers. We were collected by the hotel coach from the airport half hour drive signed in directed to our room by the porter.Had a lovely room with large balcony with sea view.It took eight hours from leaving our home in Dublin not bad. Now if you can bear with me I will show some photos of our stay.

I cringe when I see the destruction of the environment with those monster resorts that so many seem to enjoy.

A pity you did not have the chance of checking Lanzarote.
Cesar Manrique Cabrera, probably one of the best landscape architects for dry/hot gardening environments.
