My flight is booked and I've reserved a room at a hostel in the middle of Old San Juan. That's it.
Luckily, I don't need a passport or vaccinations and my phone should still work the same as it does in the states. So really, there's very little prep work to do.
However, I did make one small purchase ahead of my departure. I bought a waterproof bag for my phone.
It makes me nervous as heck but the reviews were really good and I did my own testing with a paper towel inside the pouch and it stayed dry underwater so I think I'm willing to trust my phone in it now. My main reason for getting it is so I don't have to leave my phone behind when I venture out into the ocean when I'm spending time on the beach.
It also means the possibility of some pics and video while out on the water. In fact, I'm also toying with the idea of daily videos while in Puerto Rico so this option could come in handy.
What do you think? Would you be interested in video updates from my trip? Let me know in the comments. You can also take a second to subscribe to my YouTube channel so you'll be among the first to know when a video goes live.
