This bustling metropolis, smack dab in the middle of the Caribbean delights visitors with both its old world charm and new world intrigue. Travel back in time to the colonial days of San Juan as you meander through the historical center's cobblestoned streets discovering centuries old forts and charming plazas. With its rainbow colored houses and dazzling waterfront, you'd be hard-pressed to find a more scenic destination.
Perched on Puerto Rico's southern coast, the country's second largest city, Ponce, is a cultural and architectural hub with a dash of extravagance. One part buzzing modern city, and one part old world charm, Ponce has always stood apart from its big brother San Juan.
Just off the coast of mainland Puerto Rico, the tiny island paradise of Vieques is the perfect place to escape the crowds and unwind. The majority of the land here has been left undeveloped due to US Navy presence, which means you'll find more secluded bays and virgin jungles, and less beachfront high-rises and shopping centers.
For those in search of top-notch beaches, unrivaled sunsets, and killer waves, look no further than West Puerto Rico. With a plethora of little surf towns, here you can find the country's surfing capital, Porta del Sol, as well as breathtaking seaside cliffs, bioluminescent bays, secluded lighthouses, salt flats, and thriving local wildlife.
