We’re so excited to introduce our latest villa destination: Puerto Rico! Puerto Rico is an ideal island for travelers seeking a laid-back beach getaway with rich culture and friendly, welcoming locals. With a mix of Caribbean, African, Hispanic, and U.S. influences, Puerto Rico manages to pack a varied cultural punch – from art galleries to surf shops, golf courses to reggaeton clubs, this island offers it all.
For a relatively small island (about the size of Connecticut), Puerto Rico offers a wide range of landscapes as well. You can surf and snorkel, hike steep mountain trails, or explore El Yunque National Forest, the only tropical rainforest in the U.S. National Forest System.
Puerto Rico is also home to some of the deepest caves in the world. Rio Camuy Cave Park (Parque Las Cavernas de Rio Camuy), an enormous 268-acre park of underground caves, is a must-visit for kids and adults alike. You can ride a tram down to the caverns, then get out and explore by foot. In addition to stunning stalactites and stalagmites, you’ll witness plenty of underground wildlife, including bats, frogs, and crabs.
Another unique attraction is the Arecibo Observatory, the world’s largest and most sensitive radio telescope. Learn about astronomy in the visitor center’s museum after you take in the views of the 1,000-ft.-wide dish.
For those members of the group who can stay out long past sunset, a tour of Bioluminescent Bay in Vieques is a must-do. Kayak out on a dark, moonless night for the best view of the microscopic glowing organisms floating in the bay. It’s a surreal experience you won’t soon forget!
