The US not only has its own Caribbean Island but its very own National Rain Forest. Add in old towns that date back hundreds of years, stunning beaches, outdoor adventure and unique fusion cuisine - all of this only a 2-3hour flight from the East Coast. Currently all you need is a covid test to land and start your fun in the sun!
San Juan & El Yunque
Just minutes from the airport, you find yourself transported back in time - where the cobblestones are blue, the buildings are colorful and 2 Spanish fortresses watch over it all. This is vibrant Old Town San Juan - the beating heart of Puerto Rico. Food, History, Music and Sun make the perfect winter escape. Bonus, a mere 30 minutes away is the lush rain forest El Yunque - a hiking experience with look out towers and waterfalls to work off all the mofongo!
Make it a full Island Immersion
There is much more to this gem than just the Old Town and the National Rain Forest. The coastline stretches over 300 miles of Caribbean coastline, while the interior remains a dense jungle. Luxury Resorts carve out stretches of private beach on the east coast, while the west draws a laid back surfer crowd. The South is home to second-largest city, Ponce, making a great historical stop to an island circumnavigation route.
Vieques and Culebra
If getting away to one Caribbean island doesn't get you far enough away, Puerto Rico has 2 more islands! With easy ferry service or quick charter plane hops, you can get further off the grid to a sleepy sunny spot with more locals than tourists and a stunning Bioluminescent Bay.
