Only three weekends left in Puerto Rico and today we did some outlet shopping, drove along the beautiful northern coast from Barceloneta to Arecibo and had a delicious seafood meal.
I have to confess something; it is actually the third weekend in a row that we go to the outlets! 😕 Maybe we are shopaholics but the clothes are much cheaper here than in Europe and we might as well aprovechar (take advantage) while we are here! Especially as we do need to update our wardrobes for the colder climate in Belgium.

Swedish B had decided to join us for today’s excursion and we met in Barceloneta where the huge Prime Outlets mall is located. We only went into a handful of shops and actually only shopped in RL and BR. As O likes to say, we were not “very inspired” (despite the above purchases), and maybe we are quite “shopped out” after the last weekends’ shopping sprees.
Our second destination was a restaurant that B has been telling us about but we haven’t had the opportunity to check out:
It was a lovely place and we fully enjoyed the late lunch and the views over the ocean, the lighthouse, the surfers and the lizards on the beach (no lizard photo today though). Definitely worth the drive to Arecibo (79 km from San Juan).
*) We hardly ever pay the full [outlet] price when we shop at the outlets, and always look for “Clearance” and today we also had extra discount vouchers of 15% in Banana Republic and 20% in RL, hence the low prices…
