Outpost of Spanish culture and tropical beauty

On these sands, you can pretty much do anything your heart desires, from strolling along the shore to jet skiing over aquamarine waters. Just as beautiful is the tropical island landscape, including lush mountains and leafy jungles, home to a variety of wildlife and free-growing bananas you can pick off the tree. Zip line, rappel, rock climb or hike through it all, pausing only to admire another surprise waterfall.
Proud of its people and prouder still of its history, Puerto Rico’s forts, lighthouses and historic areas testify to its storied past and Spanish background. World-class resorts poised along the beaches or on the edge of the rainforests offer visitors the unparalleled luxury of exceptional service and authentic dining, all within proximity to nightlife, where salsa is king. Pick up the “bomba” and “plena” rhythms to impress your friends back home.
Puerto Rico’s mascot is a tiny tree frog called the coqui, which makes a distinctive ‘co-KEE’ mating call at night.
