Check out the gorgeous pics of these gorgeous men who went to Puerto Rico

As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words, and after so many headlines about storms and earthquakes in Puerto Rico, it is refreshing to see the island looking great once again.

Daniel Antillón (above) and his husband Brian Bonci live in New York, and they took a much-needed winter holiday to Puerto Rico in January 2020, to soak up some sun and explore the island. They had a great time at San Juan’s gay bars in The Condado, and Daniel enjoys the Puerto Rican cuisine (“I ate mofongo every day,” he told GayCities), and their photos of the beaches around Puerto Rico are stunning.

Take a look at the gorgeous beaches that they discovered, as they drove around and explored the northern coast of Puerto Rico, including a stop on Vieques Island. Some of these photos could be postcards. Go now before those beaches get crowded again.

   

The beaches on Vieques are stunning.

Wild horses live on Vieques, and wander around the Crab Island Run Distillery, which makes premium rum, making Puerto Rico’s most famous export. Crab Island offers tours of their plant, and of course lots of rum varieties are for sale.

Travel to and from Vieques includes a short ride on Vieques Air, which is fun for anyone who is not scared of flying on small planes.


Back on the main island, Playa Mar Chiquita is on the northern coast, west of San Juan.

The boys continue their journey west, to Guajataca Beach

The Guajataca Tunnel, in Quebradilla, on the northwest coast. The beaches here are popular for collecting seashells.

The boys pose for a photo in Mayagüez , on the western coast of Puerto Rico. Mayagüez is an important industrial center of Puerto Rico, and home of the prestigious University of Puerto Rico-Mayaguez. Outside of the city, this western district of the island is less developed and has more of a tropical vibe.

Don’t stay out too long or you’ll have a stripe for a tan line.
