Next morning we headed to the south west cost path, where all the towns were lovely and the beaches gorgeous. Puerto Real, Boqueron, La Parguera; are some of the coastal villages we stopped by. Then we headed to Ponce, the second capital of the Island, first autonomous city. Very interesting place with another Holidays Inn with a casino as well.
We registered in the Hotel and then went to explore the city of Ponce, named after the Capitan General Ponce de Leon. Again a lot of history and interesting building, by this time, unfortunately my phone was full and my camera ran out of batteries. I got a few pics from our friend traveling ensemble.

Surprisingly Puerto Rico has all the corporation business we got in the States, when we got hungry for dinner we drove into the mall and found a PF Chang's China Bistro. It truly felt like we were in South Point Mall in Durham, NC. And Next morning when we left Ponce, Crispy Kreme hot sign was on and then I tried for the first time a hot donut, just fresh out of the oven, melting over my tongue, so sweet and soft I swore I'd never do that again. Not kidding! On top of that they make a very good café au lait. Oh, Mamacita! Save me from the Crispy Kreme, that I save myself from the rest!
