The Afar Guide to
Puerto Rico

Close your eyes and imagine a tropical island where the sun paints a watercolor palette across the sky, birds and frogs sing you to sleep, and you wake to a turquoise-blue ocean at your fingertips. You sip water from a fresh coconut and snack on seafood-filled empanadillas. You’re envisioning the Caribbean island of Puerto Rico—the island of enchantment, with a rich cultural history and a geography begging to be explored. The wonders of this island can only be described by the phrase Puerto Rico lo hace mejor!
