attractions

Bioluminescent Bay, Vieques for Thrill- seekers

Vieques is a small island off the east coast of Puerto Rico with spectacular beaches and local character. The beaches, restaurants, wild horses, and local colour all make Vieques worth atleast a few days’ visit.

Old San Juan for Urbanites

If you are craving a trip to Europe, You just have to spend a little time in Old San Juan to get your fill of old-world charm. Cosmopolitan and quaint, colorful and gritty, old-school and edgy all at once, Old San Juan is packed with eclectic restaurants, hip bars, and lively music venues.

Luquillo Beach for Family Fun

Luquillo Beach is the perfect place for families, as parking, bathrooms and food—three crucial items for families with kids—are all easily accessible.

The waves are minimal and the current is almost never strong, so it’s perfect for our 2-year-old to wade in and out with ease

Hotel El Convento for the Fabulous Set

It would be hard pressed to stay anywhere else in Old San Juan.

A former convent that retains a feeling of serenity within the chaos of the city, El Convento has bright, spacious rooms, a charming lobby, and extremely helpful staff.

Flamenco Beach, Culebra for Sun-Worshippers

Although Culebra is even smaller than tiny Vieques, You can’t resist travelling here at least once a year to enjoy one of the most beautiful beaches I’ve ever seen.

Flamenco Beach is consistently ranked one of the most gorgeous beaches in the world, and it’s easy to see why.

Ponce Art Museum for Culture Lovers

When you are all beached out and need a dose of culture, this place does the trick.

The largest art museum in the Caribbean, the Museo de Arte de Ponce (MAP) houses an impressive collection of European and Puerto Rican art, and recently underwent an extensive renovation.

El Morro Fortress for History Buffs and Families

Yes, it’s touristy, but still well worth a visit, especially for history buffs or families with kids. Built by the Spanish, attacked by the Dutch, and used as a U.S. Army military post during the 20th century, Castillo San Felipe Del Morro is now a museum open to the public.

Parrot Club  for Foodies

It’s hard to choose a top food spot in San Juan, as there are many great options.  Parrot Club is one of our favourites: It consistently serves fantastic, fresh, and flavourful Nuevo Latino food in a lively atmosphere.

Mona Island for Nature Fanatics

Mona Island lies about 40 miles west of the main island and is accessible by chartered boat. It’s been compared to the Galapagos Islands because of the long list of endangered species that make it their home, and its rugged, untouched beauty.

Rincon Beach for Surfers

All the surfing buddies can’t say enough about the waves at Rincon beach. We love this laid-back beach town for its eclectic charm. Well-known as the best surf spot in Puerto Rico, Rincon is in the northwest part of the island where waves can reach up to 30 feet high.
