It’s there on the map. A faint purple line that transects the entire island. The Panoramic Route through the mountains. We’re mountain driving pros, right? Let’s go see what we see.
The route starts/ends in Mayaguez so it was an easy start. We weaved, we wended. We missed a turn, we back tracked. We saw a few vistas, but it was not a scenic drive like in the Rockies. Mostly you get to see what life is like up in the hills.
We ended up in the tiny town of Maricao. Small square, but a cute Cafe Gelato where we had lunch. This town has a coffee festival in February 🙂
