Puerto Rico Travel Guide

Often referred to as the land of 1,000 blessings, the tropical island of Puerto Rico is one of the hidden gems of the Caribbean. With cultural influences from Africa, Europe, and the Caribbean, over three hundred miles of stunning beaches, lush rainforests, secluded waterfalls, and mouth-watering cuisine, Puerto Rico has something for everyone - whether you are a beach bum, a culture vulture, or an adventure junkie.

Things to Do in Puerto Rico

Many visitors to Puerto Rico will no doubt fly into the capital of San Juan. With some of the hottest nightlife spots on the globe, a quaint old town, and home to the island's much loved Condado beach, you absolutely must spend a portion of your vacation here, however we urge you to venture off the beaten track and explore some of the lesser known regions and sleepy beach towns on the island which allow you to escape the tourist hoards and witness the true beauty of the island's culture.

The only tropical rainforest in the U.S, El Yunque offers hiking trails through lush forests filled with fragrant flowers, tropical wildlife, and winding streams. Located in northeastern Puerto Rico, it is possible to explore the park either independently or with a guide.

The two Spanish 'Virgin Islands' , Culebra awaits just off the east coast of Puerto Rico. Accessible by plane or ferry, the island is home to the undisturbed Flamenco and Tamarindo beaches and offers up tranquil scenes that make you feel like Robinson Crusoe!
