All of OSJ is now with power and businesses have reopened.

We can also provide you with a pin/googlemaps to get to the Angelito Trail which is open and is safe for kids.
• Bio Bay, Las Croabas, currently open but the bioluminescence has not been restored 100%
• The Bio Bay (Mosquito Bay) in Vieques has recovered to 100% but would require one to stay overnight at the island
• San Felipe del Morro Fort and San Cristobal Fort have reopened
• Paseo de la Princesa was closed for repairs due to hugewaves that hit PR beginning of March 2018, but has been reopened temporarily
• Hacienda Carabali, operational, including ATVs and horseback riding, Luquillo
• For salsa dancing: Nuyorican Cafe, Old San Juan, has closed but Latin Roots has reopened

Guest access
Full access to Master Suite and Octopus Room, two full bathrooms, livingroom, kitchen and two terraces, including laundry in kitchen. Two sets of keys are provided to enter the building after hours.

Other things to note
This is an old world meets new. You and your friends should be ready for a few "old way of doing things", including a super cool entry way through a small bazaar. Birds may be seen flying through the living room area, entering through the terrace doors and exiting throught the large window. LARGE TERRACE: Small lizards may be seen in and around the plants, but don't worry they're harmless and help with bugs. Green parrots may be heard flying around OSJ and one of them likes to hang out above the large terrace(around 5pm).
