Planning a perfect trip to Puerto Rico is an easy task. The hardest part will be deciding on what great experiences make the “must do” list and which might have to wait for another trip. No matter how much time you have, vacations tend to go by faster than we think. Puerto Rico is perfect for adventure seekers as well as travelers looking for rest and relaxation. With so many things to see and do on the island, Puerto Rico can be the trip of a lifetime. What’s so perfect about Puerto Rico?
If we had to answer that question in a single word, we’d say “everything!”. Besides the fact that Puerto Rico is part of the Caribbean (in case you need more than that) and we are known as the Island of Enchantment, there are so many unique things to see and do here on this magnificent island. Oh yeah…and don’t forget that if you are traveling from the U.S., you don’t need a passport to get here! Or to learn a new language (although it is always appreciated when island visitors speak Spanish with us!).
But if you need more reasons as to what makes Puerto Rico so perfect, then here you go:
The island is full of adventure. You can find eco tours at organic farms or the rainforest. Take a fabulous hike in the El Yunque National Rainforest, or visit some incredible waterfalls. Don’t forget there is always ziplining through the forest, breathtaking snorkeling and scuba diving. Fishing for game fish like wahoo, tuna, white marlin, snook and more is always an adventure in Puerto Rico.
The El Yunque National Rainforest is said to be the United States’ only tropical rainforest.With four different ecosystems, this rainforest is full of biodiversity. Magical views of the rainforest canopy, bird watching and a swim in the waterfalls are among some of the favorite things to do in the rainforest. Oh yeah, and how incredible is it to spend the day in a rainforest?!
It has been said that “Puerto Rico is not in the drink you choose, but in the beach you drink it on!” And we’ve certainly got our share of amazing beaches. Flamenco, Luquillo Beach, Seven Seas Beach and Playa Escondida are such beautiful places to spend your days. Swim, sunbath, relax, beachcomb or snorkel your way through the day and feel the peace and beauty of the Caribbean.
History lovers rejoice here as the island is brimming with amazing history. Castillo San Cristobal and El Morro are incredible landmarks that everyone can enjoy; not just history lovers. With over 500 years of history on the island, you will learn how fascinating life on our island has been for centuries.
Art and Architecture
Old San Juan is the perfect place to unique architecture also dating back several centuries. And with art all around you, you will not want to miss spending some time in Old San Juan. Museums, hundreds of restored buildings and even a trolley ride are an incredible part of what makes Puerto Rico so perfect. The character and charm is like no other.
This has a really cool double meaning here in Puerto Rico. First, for those who enjoy the lively scene, San Juan offers a vibrant and fun nightlife for the partier in you. Cut loose and enjoy the bars and clubs while you are here. You’ll have the time of your life. The second meaning for nightlife around these parts is nature and science at its best. Check out Bioluminescent Bay. While a bit more calm than the nightlife of San Juan, the bay features naturally glowing microorganisms. Take a kayak tour at night to experience the underwater glowing.
