Top 5 / Caribbean

Bayamón might not be the largest town in Puerto Rico but that doesn’t mean it’s lacking when it comes to great places to eat. Authentic cuisine is hiding around every corner with a few foreign options that are surprisingly delicious.

Aposento

Aposento offers upscale dining in Puerto Rico at an affordable price. The authentic dishes here are made to order and are packed with delicious spices and huge portions to stuff your belly. Be sure to get your hands on some sweet plantains before you leave.

Restaurante Doña Ana

Restaurant Doña Ana is an unassuming joint tucked inside the El Mercado, but it has one of the tastiest menus in Bayamón. The menu is in Spanish so you might need a little help deciding on your meal, but no matter what you choose you can’t go wrong. Locals love the perfectly cooked bistec.

Mofongo

The best comfort food in Puerto Rico is found at Mofongo. The restaurant offers a great mix of local and mainland American cuisine, so there’s a little something for everyone and the prices are a steal. If you’ve got a heaping appetite, do yourself a favor and order the chuleta kan kan.

El Gigante Dormido

El Gigante Dormido is tucked away in a residential area of Bayamón, which only helps serve the authentic appeal. The menu changes constantly, but you can always get your hands on some mashed plantains or churrasco. For dessert, try a bite of the coconut flan.

La Fondita de Leo

Le Fondita de Leo won’t be winning any awards for its décor, but this unassuming little restaurant more than makes up for a dreary atmosphere with excellent food packed with flavor. It’s semi-authentic, so you’re able to get your hands on some churrasco with a side of French fries if you prefer.

Foods to Pack for a Long-Haul Flight (and How to Get Them Through Security)

 As airlines start nickel and dime-ing their way into the world’s wallets, travelers have had to get crafty in order to get around newly enacted add-on fees, especially when it comes to in-flight meals. Since this luxury is no longer guaranteed on some flights, particularly on low-cost, long-haul vessels, and because airport food is notoriously overpriced, passengers pack their own food to bring on these long flights. But what types of food are allowed to pass through security and also last multiple hours on a plane in varying temperatures?

Work and Play in Italy

ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.

Hotel Zeppelin, San Francisco

I lived in San Francisco during college so coming to visit the city and see all the changes was exciting. The Hotel Zeppelin was built in a once slightly shabby area that has since come alive with new hotels and restaurants for travelers looking for something different. We arrived at noon on a Friday afternoon and were immediately greeted by the hotel staff at the front desk. They were able to accommodate an early check-in, completed in just a few minutes. The lobby is as hip as the hotel name sounds, but it also offered a cozy atmosphere, with a roaring fire and comfy couches and chairs in the lounge area. Unique wall art, statues and lighting remind you of the cool factor.

Coffee Table Books for the Adult-ish Traveler

There are few things as adult-ish as a well-designed living space. When you stop strewing your Ikea coffee table with old magazines and straw wrappers, and start creating a “lewk” that’s more your style, it’s time to invest in a coffee table book. Sometimes pricey, these are not the tomes you curl up with in your cozy chair. They’re often hefty, artistic and fun and, if chosen correctly, a true representation of your own sense of style and interests.
