Puerto Rico is considered one of the most beautiful places in the world to visit (especially in my family), so much so that my sister-in-law had a destination wedding on one of Puerto Rico’s stunning beach resorts. It’s a 5-star vacation destination that really does have something for everyone, whether you love to eat, enjoy adventures, golfing, or being a beach bum (raises hand).
I live in New York, and for those of us on the east coast, Puerto Rico just a quick plane ride away. No need for a passport, no need to convert your dollars into foreign money…just hop on a plane and go!
Puerto Rico Tourism recently partnered with popular travel review site Trip Advisor to create beautiful short films, narrated by Puerto Rican stars, out of the five star reviews from past travelers to Puerto Rico…they truly display its beauty and will inspire you to live out your own five star dream vacation in Puerto Rico! (It’s also fun to hear actors I love, like Luis Guzman, narrate about his beloved country).
I love beaches, so Puerto Rico’s coastline, all 270 miles of it, including Flamenco Beach, would be a dream to visit this summer. The explorer in me however would also want to make sure I make lots of time to explore the caverns of Camuy, which run through the third largest subterranean river in the world!
I love nature and the outdoors, and the mountainous El Yunque is the only rainforest under US national park service. It’s peaks actually reach high into the clouds, so trekking up with your family would literally be walking on the clouds, and you can find this stunning rainforest in beautiful Puerto Rico.
I’ve never been to the Bioluminescent Bays, so learning that wading in it makes you glow like an ethereal being, truly luminescent…it’s a MUST DO!! Plankton living in the waters glow when the waters are disturbed, and at night it’s an utterly magical vision, very romantic.
Puerto Rico in general is very romantic, a great place to enjoy delicious foods, strolls through charming towns like San Juan, and much more, but it’s also wonderful for families to enjoy and adventure together. It’s a perfect vacation spot for my family.
