From urban jungle to tangled rainforest (and back again)
Puerto Rico still feels like the quiet cousin of the Caribbean. Most visitors are cruise shippers who pitch up just for the day, en route to busier, better-known destinations. But those that linger uncover an island ripe for discovery. A place where you can venture into dense rainforest and be back at one of the best hotels in Puerto Rico in time for coquito cocktails at dusk. Or spend days on near-deserted beaches and fill nights with salsa dancing.
Nowhere reflects Puerto Rico’s glorious jumble of cultural influences and captivating experiences quite like San Juan. It oozes golden-age glamour, with art deco landmarks and intricate iron balconies hanging on every-colour-of-the-rainbow buildings. And with beaches in reach, it’s the perfect base for island adventures.
