ah...Aibonito, what a nice place!
Aibonito is the town of with the highest elevation in PR.
Green, and nice and cool.
I met this lovely young lady in her early Twenties picking up my Jeep at a local Jeep dealership near my home in NJ 2 years ago.

I told her I was going to PR, she said her parents lived in Aibonito...we got to talking and she and she asked me if I would consider dropping off a package to them on my way to my place in Rincón from SJU...she would alert them that we were coming.

Having never been to Aibonito, we agreed.

She said she felt bad that she hadn't been to visit them in two years, and with sadness in her eyes, she lamented they were 'getting old'

We rolled up to their place around 3 pm on a Friday afternoon, expecting to see some old busted down Viejos gimping out of the casa to greet us...

Her Mom and Dad bounded out of the house to greet us..turns out her Mother was 48 and her Dad 51. they looked about 10 years younger.

I guess age is relative.

What a pair of sweethearts, they cooked for us, we ate and drank like Gypsies and ended up staying the night at their insistence.

what a great experience.

Thanks guys, didn't want to highjack the thread, but Aibonito is a lovely town, with lovely people.

I am not bragging, but I have pretty much seen a whole lot of this big world and have found Puerto Rico and it's people to be some of the most hospitable and friendly people I ever met.

( even though they drive like maniacs )

hey since we're talking Aibonito: el Canyon de San Cristobal.

Camped out there one night. I'd never heard of it until that day. Very Impressive.
