Puerto Rico Caribbean Vacations
Puerto Rico is where four centuries of Spanish Caribbean culture comes face to face with the American convenience store.
Travellers who venture into the island's mountainous interior or explore its undeveloped coasts come across stately hill towns where the locals in the plaza seem to have been feeding the same pigeons for decades, and reefs where divers can see 30 species of fish in as many seconds.
Puerto Rico's tropical climate and variety of land and seascapes make the island a perfect place to get active outdoors. Lovely sandy beaches and protected bays let you indulge in swimming, body surfing, and kayaking just offshore. The lush mountains are great for hiking, birdwatching and relishing the sounds of croaking frogs.
