Puerto Rico boasts more than 300 beaches and year-round temperate weather.
But, that’s not all – although Puerto Rico is often under-rated as a destination, it packs a mighty punch for tourists.
An unincorporated territory of the United States, Puerto Rico is situated less than 1600 kilometres from Miami, Florida. With hundreds of flights each week from the US, Puerto Rico is a great addition to any state-side trip.
It’s no secret that Puerto Rico is blessed with beautiful beaches, but it also has a plethora of natural forests. In fact, it is home to the only subtropical rainforest in the United States. Be sure to visit El Yunque where you will find a unique mix of flora and fauna, rivers and trails to hike. It is a must for any nature-lover.
Puerto Rico also has three bioluminescent bays. Considering there are only five in the world, Puerto Rico is a must-visit destination for this concentration of bioluminescent bays alone! While there, it’s only right to also explore Puerto Rico’s amazing cave systems!
Puerto Rico is more than natural beauty though – it has a depth of history and culture to keep you entertained. Puerto Ricans have a rich mix of African, Spanish and Tainos heritage which lends itself beautifully to the local cuisine, arts, crafts, music and traditions. By far, Spanish is the dominant language so Puerto Rico is an ideal destination for those who want to brush up on their Spanish!
It is also a perfect destination for anyone who wants to unwind and unplug from the grind of daily life. With so many stunning beaches, wonderous natural reserves and welcoming people, there is so much to love about Puerto Rico.
