Travel to Puerto Rico

The Commonwealth of Puerto Rico is officially an unincorporated territory of the United States. It is part of the Greater Antilles and enjoys a warm Caribbean climate.  Several smaller islands are included in the territory designation, including Vieques, which has an extensive wildlife refuge that was once a bombing range for the U.S. Navy.

Blue Beach, Red Beach, and Green Beach on Vieques are often listed as some of the best beaches in the entire Caribbean.

Visiting El Yunque is an excellent trekking adventure. This beautiful waterfall is accessed through a wooded trail that is well marked. Many visitors try to access “forbidden” trails to see the waterfall, but fines are levied against those who don’t use the marked path. Although many have gotten lost while visiting El Yunque, a little planning can make all the difference in the world.

Puerto Rico is also an island of color. The homes that line the beaches are beautiful and vibrant, as are the fishing boats that are left on the beaches, waiting for the next opportunity to bring in the catch of the day.

As part of your stay, be sure to visit the Old Town of San Juan. Its historic ramparts merge with narrow cobblestone streets and colorful homes to create stunning vistas that one must see to believe.

Puerto Rico is an island that is brimming with energy. Catch a baseball game during your stay, have some barbecue at the beach, and explore the history of this island to have a one-of-a-kind adventure.
