Many people who visit Puerto Rico only know about San Juan, or even the Isla Verde area right around San Juan International Airport, particularly if they have only been boarding a cruise ship. But the entire island of Puerto Rico is indeed rich in many vacation options, it’s difficult to know where to begin to list them.

Most Caribbean islands have lovely beaches, but Puerto Rico has 262 miles of them, 4 of them blue flagged, from fully developed Balnearios (beach parks) to almost completely secluded coves on its offshore islands.

Puerto Rico’s interior offers ecotourism activities, from the most congenial to the most demanding. Puerto Rico’s culture is vivid, its history is long and memorable. And Puerto Rico is a U.S. territory, so no passports are required.

San Juan, the capital city, has a unique history, and it has many, many colonial period buildings, of which it is very proud. In fact, UNESCO has designated La Forteleza and San Juan Historic Site as a World Heritage Site.

Puerto Rico has a large number of deluxe resorts – Caribe Hilton; El San Juan Hotel; Ritz-Carlton, San Juan; Westin Rio Mar; Paradisus; El Conquistador; and Hyatt Dorado; plus more. There are also several excellent 3-star resorts, including the Sheraton Four Points Candelero at Palmas Del Mar; Rincon-By-The-Sea and the Rincon Beach Hotel, in the newly named Porto del Sol on the west coast; and the Copamarina Resort on the south coast.

Puerto Rico is Hot! Puerto Rico is Cool! It’s busy with corporate activity, and relaxed with vacation options. It offers more of nearly everything to nearly everyone. In its own words, Puerto Rico is the Island of Enchantment.

Not To Be Missed – The offshore island of Vieques has a wonderful bioluminescent bay.
