Puerto Rico IslandPuerto Rico

Discover pristine beaches, explore caves and hiking trails, and immerse yourself in the relaxed local culture of this Caribbean island.

Puerto Rico has a rich history, pristine white-sand beaches and forested mountains, and a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Puerto Rico is made up of several islands and keys; Puerto Rico Island is the largest island and the main hub.

Explore Puerto Rico’s fascinating cultural and indigenous past in the Old San Juan district in San Juan, the capital city located on the northern coast of Puerto Rico Island. Major historic attractions include El Morro (Castillo San Felipe del Morro) and Fort San Jeronimo (Fortin de San Gerónimo de Baquerón). To learn more about contemporary local culture, visit the Museum of the Americas (Museo de Las Américas) and Museum of Art of Puerto Rico (Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico).

Enjoy traditional cuisine and cocktails at one of the island's many fashionable bars and restaurants. The Ocean Park area offers beachfront dining and a relaxed island atmosphere. Venture further afield to try regional street food at Luquillo Beach, where there are dozens of kiosks selling typical snacks, such as pinchos (chicken, pork or shrimp kabobs) and tostones (fried green plantain).

Much of Puerto Rico Island is covered in forest that is excellent for hiking. Explore the network of caves at Rio Camuy Cave Park (Parque de las Cavernas del Rio Camuy), or hike through waterfalls in El Yunque National Forest.

All along the coast you’ll find stunning beaches. Condado Beach and Isla Verde Beach are just minutes from downtown San Juan. The island’s tropical climate means it’s warm enough to dip into the ocean year-round. The height of tourist season is December through April; be aware that hurricanes can crop up the rest of the year.

Puerto Rico is serviced by the Luis Muñoz Marin International Airport in San Juan, and can be reached from destinations across the Americas. The public transportation in Puerto Rico is limited to parts of San Juan, so you’ll need to rent a car or travel by taxi if you want to explore the countryside.
