I’m thinking of taking a vacation to the Azores in late June or early July. There are direct flights from Boston and it seems to be a fairly “unspoiled” island, with lots of great hiking and nature spots. Has anyone ever been? What did you think? I’ve read a few articles (from reputable sources) that the residents aren’t super friendly to tourists - any truth to that? My wife and I don’t speak any Portuguese (or Spanish for that matter). The best we have is a smattering of rudimentary French. Is that problematic?
Any advice or experiences welcome!
