Bahía Bioluminiscente, Puerto Rico
This was the experience of a lifetime. We were fortunate to be there on the required dark night with no moon. We used see-through canoes to paddle to the middle of this inlet off the Caribbean at midnight. All wildlife in the very clear water was...

142 Calle Flamboyan, Vieques, PR 00765
Just sayin'... As far as beach bars go, this town's one-street scene is all bananas. After my trip, I called one of my awesome friends from college (go Providence!) who has frequented Vieques for work (lucky her), and when I told her how shocked I...

Puerto Rico, Mosquito, Vieques 00765, Puerto Rico
The first place we went after grabbing our motorini was to check out the famous 375-year-old Ceiba tree located in a somewhat remote area. The Ceiba tree is off a main road, naturally besides a beach. I was surprised at all the information written...

Vieques, Puerto Rico
On Puerto Rico, horses roam the farms, the mountains, the town centers—and also the beaches. A couples' horse ride at sunset is a perfect way to kiss the day good-bye. With Tropical Trail Rides, in the northwestern municipality of Isabela, you can...

54 Calle Fortaleza, San Juan, 00901, Puerto Rico
End your day in Old San Juan with a pre-dinner stroll along the water, alongside the Old City Walls. It’s that time of day when everything seems to slow down, even the waters of the Caribbean Sea begin to ease into a glassy stillness -...

501 Calle Norzagaray, San Juan, 00901, Puerto Rico
Old San Juan may look, at first glance, like a few other charming cities built during the height of Spanish colonialism—Havana or Santo Domingo, for example—but what sets it apart is the extent to which its architectural infrastructure...

If the exterior isn't enough to entice you to step inside El Capitolio, the interior will definitely make you stay to admire the intricate details and the history etched on every wall. From marble walls and staircases to mosaic ceilings, there is...

PR-165, Cataño, 00949, Puerto Rico
Traveling to Casa Bacardi was an adventure in itself, and if you're staying in San Juan a few days, it's worth the trip. It's a fun look at the company's history throughout the Caribbean and Miami. What you can expect, if you take the ferry: an...

Flavors of San Juan Food and Culture Tours is a great way to learn about the history and culture of the island while also sampling delicious Puerto Rican food. My favorite things about the tour: history, culture, and best of all food!

299 Avenida José de Diego, San Juan, 00909, Puerto Rico
Arts in Puerto Rico range from lavish recitals to paintings of humble local scenes. The Luis A. Ferré Fine Arts Center in San Juan puts on various performances, including theater, concerts, ballet, and opera. The center itself is a work of art,...

148 Calle San Sebastián, San Juan, 00901, Puerto Rico
Feel instantly cool when you slip through the unmarked wooden doors and enter La Factoria. Garden lights hang from the graffiti-covered walls (designed to look artsy-shabby with a stylish restraint), seductive music plays, and the liquor bottles...
Save Place
Ensenada, Guanica, Guánica 00647, Puerto Rico
The invasive green iguana is apparently quite the nuisance in Puerto Rico, costing islanders dearly in road repairs (from their underground burrows) and in removal efforts. They can grow over 4 feet long, with a tail like a whip and exotic...

Flamenco, Culebra, Puerto Rico
Suppose I told you there was a small, remarkably idyllic and fairly unpopulated island in the Caribbean just a short distance from the mainland United States, an island so immaculate, plans were in the works to make it a National Wildlife Refuge,...

PR-191, Río Grande, 00745, Puerto Rico
Due to Hurricane Maria, El Yunque National Forest is still partially closed. Please check the Forest Service website for updates on areas available for visits.

Few visitors to Puerto Rico leave without having visited El Yunque, the only tropical...

Ensenada, Rincón 00677, Puerto Rico
The distinctive tree of Puerto Rico is the aptly named red flamboyan, also known as a royal poinciana. You can find these growing wild everywhere throughout the island during the wet season months, particularly in April in Rincon. The trees often...

Ensenada, Rincón 00602, Puerto Rico
I rescued a local gray kingsbird, locally known as the pitirre because of the unique sound of their song. You'll notice these birds nesting in awkward and unusual places, like the precarious edge of a light post along the street, or the edge of a...

Isla de Mona, Mayagüez 00680, Puerto Rico
If you ever have the chance to explore the island that is lingering 30 miles off the southwest coast of Puerto Rico.... then go! Mona Island is a marine protected area and no-take reserve. You are allowed to venture out there for daily trips to...
