Fajardo or Humacao

We're planning a Christmas trip to Puerto Rico and plan to rent a condo as our base for exploring parts of the island. We are nature enthusiasts, food lovers and are traveling with our 13 year old daughter. Considering a couple of properties on the island and not sure which would be better, Fajardo or Humacao. Both places look lovely, just can't decide. Any advise would be great. Thank you!

If you want to visit the rainforest and biobay, then Fajardo is a better choice. You will also find more restaurants there. The beach is nicer than the one in Humacao.

Humacao is also nice, but slightly less developed than the Fajardo area.

We're planning on visiting El Yunque, going kayaking, snorkeling, riding Paso Finos, hopefully. Visiting Vieques looks like a nice day trip, if we have time.

If by Humacao you are looking at Palmas del Mar there are some things worth noting. Palmas is a large, gatedd, very densely packed retirement type community. It is a bit removed from the major attractions you mentioned. The properties there range from very nice to not so much. The community has had some major financial difficulties recently, though seems to be coming out of them. It is very different from anything else on the island.

I would agree that Fajardo or Luquillo may be a better bet.
