Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico — Puerto Rico offers skyscrapers and surf, museums and nightclubs, rain forest and desert, all packed into a chunk of Caribbean territory just 111 miles by 36 miles. A UNESCO World Heritage Site and the oldest city in the U.S. and its territories, San Juan offers five centuries of Spanish-influenced history, a colorful arts scene, and vibrant dining and nightlife. Yet many cruise passengers give the city – the Caribbean’s busiest embarkation point – and the island itself only a cursory look before climbing aboard their floating hotel, destined to more escapist fantasies. Stick around and you’ll discover one of the region’s liveliest destinations.

Why Go

For superlative beaches, culture, history, art, food, and parties, not to mention easy connections to U.S. cities.
