Well, Puerto Rico is as diverse a destination as you can imagine.
It is an exotic Caribbean group of islands, yet still part of the United States. So you do not need a passport if you are a U.S. citizen.
In Northwestern Puerto Rico, you can experience part of the third largest underground river cavern system in the world.If you like adventure, Puerto Rico is the place for you. You can hike El Yunque National Rainforest which is a finalist as one of the New 7 Wonders of the World. Or you can have the thrill of you life as you fly 1000 feet and 200 feet above ground on one of Puerto Rico’s zip lines. ATV’s and horseback rides through the rainforest are other options.
Perhaps the crystal clear water of the Caribbean is why you go to Puerto Rico. Just lounging on the beach may be your perfect day. But once again, if adventure is more what you like there are plenty of water activities. Go sailing on a catamaran, surf, snorkel or scuba dive.
Have you dreamed of being on a deserted island? Puerto Rico has one. Gilligan’s Island. The island forms part of the Guanica Biosphere Reserve. It can be easily reached by ferry for a small fee and is the perfect place to go snorkeling, swimming and sunbathing. Access to the island is limited so you can enjoy a little bit of paradise.
Looking for something very unique? How about water that seems to glow a magnificent blue-green at night? Although there are seven recorded places in the world where this natural phenomenon occurs – three of which are in Puerto Rican waters – it is widely accepted that the picturesque Puerto Mosquito Bio Bay is top of the list when it comes to the quality and brightness of the bio-luminescent experience.
Puerto Rico seems like the perfect place to go for adventure, relaxing and a little bit of the unusual.
