Puerto Rico...Don't send me to San Juan please!

Wife and I are readying to embark for the weekend and next week for Puerto Rico. We've lined up a few things to do with our resort, which seems like they will be fun and/or relaxing. My question for you lovely people is: What are some interesting, not too rigorous activities to partake in Puerto Rico?

Couple things I think will be helpful to know for advice here:
1. We are not athletic. Not terribly out of shape but definitely not triathletes. (i.e., we picked the "walking" tour instead of the "hiking" tour of El Yunque Rainforest.

2. We're staying on the northeast part of the island. We don't want to rent a car, willing to take cabs or shuttles.

3. San Juan is too big and crowded for our purposes of this trip, which is of course to relax away from bustle and experience some new things.

4. Oh yeah, it's forecasting to rain a lot, so my prescribed beach time is being act of God'd out, hence the asking for more things to do.

Thanks in advance!

    Hey, my fiance and I are going to Puerto Rico next week too for our honeymoon. We'll be staying on the SW part of the island though

    I've heard the bioluminescent bay tours on the SE part of the island are pretty awesome. I believe you can take shuttles there if you book it through a tour

    That's a good idea, we had considered that already but I had forgotten since that session of vacation planning. So thank you for the reminder! Hopefully the rain doesn't put a damper on those bioluminescenting things though.

    Congrats by the way!

    Bioluminescent bay, definitely. El Yunque isn't bad. Which resort? I just went swimming/snorkeling and hung on the beach, but my resort had a private island that wasn't packed. I hear vieques is awesome to check out as well.

    Las Casitas, which is either the same place you are talking about or just another one with it's own island. Vieques looks interesting, hadn't thought of or known about that one!

    Thanks!

    Don't count out the beach. It rains a ton in PR, but it's often in short bursts, not an all day downpour.

    The bio bays are great, but check the phase of the moon. If its half-full+ it'll only be worth going on a very cloudy night.

    I always stay in the San Juan area so I can't advise on specific places, but ask around for a bar where you can listen to live music; something local.

    I'm not sure if anything's in season, but a little deep sea fishing might work nicely.

    There's great snorkeling of course.


    That's all I've got off the top if my head.

    Good ideas there! Thanks!
