Puerto Rico

Rich in culture and nonstop fun

Puerto Rico is another Spanish-speaking tropical paradise in the Caribbean. Like most of the other Caribbean islands, Puerto Rico is a river of diversity, both in culture and in the meeting of the old and the new. The island’s capital, San Juan, is modern, with beaches a stone’s throw from many modern city amenities. No visit to Rico is complete without stopping in historic San Juan, with its blue cobblestone streets and colorful houses. Animal lovers are warned, the bloody sport of cockfighting (peleas de gallos) is legal, and enthusiasts are not in short supply. Street food is cheap and surprisingly tasty; so tasty that sampling the island’s "Nosh Pits," a reference to roadside food, is highly recommended. Puerto Rico’s El Yunque rainforest is a well-preserved enclave of the island’s tropical diversity. The name means “forest of clouds,” and one will see the aptness of the name upon entering. Lucky visitors may have the good fortune of seeing a Puerto Rican parrot, a species that is now becoming rare. With its fantastic mix of tropical climate, beautiful beaches, and natural beauty, Puerto Rico awaits.
