So I didn't really do much in Fajardo (shocking, huh? I didn't really do much this whole trip but lay on the beach:)) and knew that would probably be the case so I had booked a room with a place that I had found easily online, Fajardo Inn. After landing at the Fajardo Airport in the 8 seater, walked into the terminal and it was absolutely crazy! It was probably 8:30 or 9 and I think all of the flights to Culebra were already booked. When John picked me up the next morning he said that he had taken people to the airport 5:30 that morning and it was already hoppin'. The check in is quite late at the Fajardo Inn (4PM) but they stored my luggage and I was able to grab breakfast and then go and hang out at the pool.
I had actually chosen to go through Fajardo in order to be back on the big island the day before I was going to catch my flight out just to be safe and I had thought at the time I booked that maybe the Fajardo Inn would have a shuttle or some knowledge of something cheaper than a $80 taxi ride when I had booked. I didn't ask since I already had arranged for John to pick me up, but there wasn't anything obvious that I could see. I also had booked with them b/c I was able to make a reservation that I could cancel with 24 or 48 (I don't recall) hour notice and pay for it upon check out rather than advance (also a bonus:))
Got to the airport with LOTS of extra time (which is rare for me!) and hoped maybe to find something to charge my phone so that I could call my friend who was picking me up when I landed.
So, basically besides the ferry, airport, and Fajardo Inn...I can't tell you much about Fajardo:( The beach there, Seven Seas was also "closed" to swimming along with all of the ones along the north side of the island (per report) due to the storm system. When we were driving to the airport I did spy some spots where the waves were pretty huge.
