One of my favorite parts about travel is immersing myself in a new culture, or at least in someone else's idea of a culture. This immersion starts with finding unique places to stay, and my new favorite tool for this is Airbnb. For Puerto Rico, Ryan and I both got on our respective accounts and spent hours digging through options until we stumbled upon the Dreamcatcher Guesthouse. We immediately knew this was the place. As the images will show, it was an absolute dream.
Surrounded by a lush garden, Dreamcatcher was a serene respite from the bustle of San Juan. There were communal living areas with wide doors opening into tiled patios with gorgeous green plants spilling out of every nook and cranny. A guitar was permanently propped against a settee for guests to play, and herbal teas were always at the ready when ever you needed to just sit and relax for a moment.
We stayed in the Moroccan Room which came with its own entrance and side porch with a small table and chairs. We happily finished each evening on the porch under the glow of a lantern, listening to the birds hum the night away. I promise I'm not making any of this up.
