Puerto Rico's Panoramic Route
Many visitors to Puerto Rico
confine themselves to San Juan or perhaps venture westward to the surf town of Rincón or to the outlying islands of Vieques and Culebra. If they head inland, it’s typically for specific attractions such as El Yunque, Camuy Caves, or the observatory in Arecibo. Travelers with some extra time and a sense of adventure may want to rent a car and head into the heart of the island on the Ruta Panorámica, where the jíbaro
(or country) lifestyle can be observed. Signage can be poor and roadways hazardous, so confine your driving to daylight hours.
