Paradise

I had never hear of Puerto Rico until a  kind lady rang me up and said "you've won a holiday there!" I know a hell of lot more about the Caribbean, long haul flights, luxury hotels and the rum industry than before.

A holiday of humidity, heat, beautiful beaches, great food and utter luxury. St Regis Bahia Beach staff were the most wonderful hosts ever. They upgraded us to a suite. Yes a suite! We had a butler and literally didn't have to lift a finger. Clearly the playground of wealthy Americans. We went on trips to the rain forest, catamaran and snorkeling adventures. We hiked our selves off the to local beach  at Luquillo where the sea water was like a warm bath and the 60 odd kiosks offered every variety of food you could imagine. We opted for El Jefe for its famed burgers and the name if we a are totally honest.  We swam, slept and sunbathed. A stunning place where nothing was too much trouble.

    1. Libby, I enter loads of competitions from magazines to Twitter campaigns. Someone has to win at some point. Next time you see one you should enter, you never know
