Destination Puerto Rico

The Caribbean island of Puerto Rico has been attracting tourists for decades, and there is no question why. This stunning tropical paradise has everything that visitors could want, and more!

Getting to Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico is one of the most accessible islands in the Caribbean, and a large amount of air carriers fly there from the USA. Most international or domestic US flights arrive and depart from San Juan International Airport, which lies about 2km eastwards of the city. From here you can take a taxi or hire a car to get to the city centre. Alternatively, many travellers take a short domestic flight on from here to one of the smaller islands, situated off of the coast of Puerto Rico. San Juan is also one of the largest cruise ship ports in the Western Hemisphere. It is possible for couples and their guests to arrive or leave as part of a cruise ship party, especially if you are interested in taking in the rest of the Caribbean.

Where to go in Puerto Rico

San Juan, the capital city of Puerto Rico, is an excellent starting off point for those who want to explore the island. It is easy to take in most of the sites of the island, using the capital as a base. Other popular destinations include the romantic islands of Vieques and Culebra, which can both be reached by boat or light aircraft.

Relax on a Beach

There are so many wonderful beaches on Puerto Rico that it can be hard to choose which one to go to. Many of the best beaches, such as Playa Tortuga are only accessible by water taxi, so if you are lucky, you may even have the whole beach to yourself.

Historical Sites

Puerto Rico has a very rich and varied history, and the island has a wealth of historic sites for visitors who enjoy getting a taste of the past. If you only have the chance to visit one historical site during your stay on the island, the Castillo de San Felipe Del Morro is well worth your time. This 16th century citadel helped to protect Puerto Rico for well over 400 years, and will help you to properly understand the island’s turbulent history.

Spectacular Natural Highlights

The island is home to a wide array of spectacular natural highlights, including the United State’s only area of natural tropical rainforest. There are several trails through the rainforests on which it is possible to amaze at the abundant flora and fauna, ranging from light strolls to harder climbs. Along the trails there are also various waterfall bathing points. For those who fancy something a little more adventurous, the Camuy cave system offers visitors the chance to explore Puerto Rico from below.

Experience Real Magic

Visit Vieques Bay on a moonless night and you will have the chance to experience nature’s magic first hand. This rare bioluminescence bay is filled with millions of tiny, single celled organisms which begin to glow whenever they become agitated. This means that they glow whenever a fish, or a person, or any other object comes into contact with them. On a dark night, the effect is truly magical.

Golf

The island has a number of different golf courses which are open to non-members, including the Trump International Golf Club, which was designed by PGA pro Tom Kite. For those who enjoy a challenge, the courses of Puerto Rico offer a variety of different types of course terrain.

When to Visit Puerto Rico

The best time to visit Puerto Rico is between mid-December and late-April, although prices are higher and hotels are busier during this period. The island can be especially busy during the Christmas and Easter holidays, although shops and restaurants may be closed completely on national holidays. June through to November is hurricane season across the Caribbean, and is best avoided.
