Puerto Rico, a Paradise on Earth

Puerto Rico
Scented by slow roasted port and sea breeze and coloured by swashbuckling history, the sun washed medley of Spanish and American influences is a paradise seeker’s pleasure dome.

Puerto Rico is blessed with towering mountains, rainforests, white sandy beaches along the Caribbean shores and a vibrant culture forged from a mix of Caribbean, Hispanic and African. This place is as exciting as Miami or Las Vegas and the sophisticated fashion sense of the city and its inhabitants will genuinely impress visitors. Puerto Rico is a crowded island. Tourist is generally safe and a crime in a tourist district is rare. The tropical climate, delicious cuisine and rich history make it a popular destination for tourists. And for sure the beautiful blue Caribbean Sea and sandy beaches have a lot to do with it as well. Beautiful palm-lined beaches, some with calm warm waters lapping the golden sand and others with huge waves and famous breaks draw all kind of beach seekers from couples and families to hard core surfer.

You can spend lavishly and enjoy just about any vacation your heart desires when you come to this island, but it’s also nice to know that you don’t have to break the bank to have a good time. In fact you have your choice of free activities in Puerto Rico to enjoy.

Puerto Rico INSPIRES Caribbean daydreams for good reason. It can satisfy both the lethargic beach bum and the budding big wave surfer. All in a long weekend.

El YUNQUE NATIONAL FOREST: it is one of Puerto Rico’s most popular natural attractions and is often visited on a tour from San Juan. Some of the main highlights in El Yunque National forest include La Coca Falls, Yokahu Tower, Bano Grande, Bano de Oro and La Mina Falls.

SURFING AND WHALE WATCHING AT RINCON: it is often called PUEBLO del Surfing (Surfing Town) and little Malibu,” Rincon is known to Puerto Ricans as a Gringo paradise. It became a surfing mecca after the World Surfing Championships in 1968, when images of Rincon and the frequent 15 foot high waves were transmitted worldwide. Rincon is also one of Puerto Rico’s main areas for whale watching excursions.

ISLA VERDE: For the all-inclusive crowd looking for the nice resorts and a decent beach within easy reach of a major airport, Isla Verde is just the answer. Everything an overworked, sun-seeking, beach-loving vacationer could ask for. The water is calm lined by a white sandy beach and backed by palm trees and resort. Isla Verde is a tropical get away with all the comforts.

ZIP THROUGH THE AIR: if your idea of getting outdoor involves swinging from a steel cable and flying through the air across a forest valley then try out one of the many zip line parks in Puerto Rico.

Ever tried kiteboarding? Well if you’re visiting Puerto Rico you can put it on you’re to do list. The good folks at 15 knot will teach you how to go about. Kiteboarding is a combination of water skiing, windsurfing and paragliding. The waves, currents and adrenaline rush make it a great afternoon out.

GLOW IN THE DARK: if you want to experience the outdoors in a truly unique way, book a kayak tour to a bioluminescent bay or bio bay. Puerto Rico has three of them, in itself a natural phenomenon unparalleled in the world. One of the Mosquito bay is recognized as the most brilliant bio bay in the world. As for what is baobab is, imagine water that glows neon green whenever it comes in contact with another object like a darting fish the oar of kayak or a human hand.

Touring coffee plantations and tasting the incredible food is a must. Like Mofongo which is a fried plantain dish stuffed with a variety of meats. And the Puerto Ricans serve the best beans and rice in the world.

There are many fantastic resorts in Puerto Rico and staying at a Choice Hotel property in the Caribbean is a great way to save money with free breakfast and wife at their comfort inn locations.
