Kite flying by the seaside is something all the family can enjoy. If it's a breezy day, why not see if you can launch one at Playa Cofresi? But the excitement doesn't end there.

Nothing's wrong with an ordinary retreat lazing beside the swimming pool, but traveling's all about broadening your horizons. So why don't you plunge headfirst into some amazing new adventures? (That way, you'll have tons more to brag about when you arrive back home!)
