    Puerto Rico Does It Better.

    Puerto Rico provides the ideal Caribbean getaway for those seeking the excitement and exotic atmosphere of a tropical paradise combined with the convenience of traveling within the United States. The fact that no passport is required for U.S. citizens traveling to Puerto Rico means a convenient playground awaits, and more than 420 weekly direct flights from 21 U.S. cities helps make Puerto Rico one of the most convenient Caribbean getaways.

    Travelers who seek an activity-filled, versatile getaway need look no further than the Island of Enchantment. Here, beautiful white sand beaches, historic attractions, world-class accommodations and taste-tantalizing cuisine beckon those who crave a vacation. Boasting all the benefits of an all-inclusive Caribbean resort experience but with so much more - and at a greater value – the Island truly lives up to its slogan: Puerto Rico Does It Better.

    Puerto Rico provides the ideal getaway for travelers seeking “beaches plus.” On the Island, visitors will find diverse geography and a wealth of activities, accommodations and restaurants. Whether visitors are looking for a relaxing island escape, golf or scuba vacation, an adventure trip amidst tropical rainforests or a getaway rich in history and culture, the island of Puerto Rico offers all these experiences and more.

    A perfect microcosm of the Island’s rich cultural history, Puerto Rico’s European, Afro-Caribbean and Latin American influences blend together to create one of the most palate-tempting cuisines in the world. Puerto Rico is dotted with magnificent restaurants and happening bars that are worth the trip.

    Puerto Rico provides the ideal spring break getaway for families with the excitement and exotic atmosphere of a tropical paradise combined with the convenience of traveling within the United States. The fact that no passport is required for U.S. citizens traveling to Puerto Rico means a convenient playground awaits your entire family, and more than 420 weekly direct flights from 21 U.S. cities helps make Puerto Rico one of the most convenient Caribbean getaways.

    No matter how much (week-long vacationers) or how little (cruisers and day-trippers) time one has, Old San Juan is a must-see. This original settlement of Puerto Rico is the second-oldest in the Western Hemisphere, and it is bursting with history and charm. Cobblestone streets guide tourists to attractions such as the Museum of San Juan, which hosts permanent displays of art, history and culture as well as rotating exhibits from both local and international tours.

    Puerto Rico has a reputation as a fun-loving culture, and it is well deserved. A major part of the Puerto Rican economy is rum production; in fact, 70 percent of all of the rum sold in the U.S. comes from Puerto Rico. At the Bacardí rum distillery, Casa Bacardí, visitors can take a free tour to learn about the history of sugar cane, the Bacardí family, the rum-making process and even how to make popular drinks such as piña coladas and mojitos. The tour concludes with two free drinks for those old enough to enjoy.

    Though there is more than enough in San Juan to fill even the speediest tourist’s day, there is so much more to enjoy outside of the city should time allow. Travelers benefitting from an entire day or longer in Puerto Rico should consider renting a car or taking a tour bus to El Yunque, the only official tropical rainforest in the U.S. Park Service System. Here, visitors can hike miles of nature trails, discover waterfalls and encounter more than 1,300 different species of wildlife, three of which are only found on the Island.
