Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico’s rich Spanish heritage makes it one of the most historic and interesting islands in the whole of the Caribbean. Containing exquisite architecture dating back to the 1500s when the Spanish first came to the region, the capital city San Juan is an essential stop on any Puerto Rican itinerary. Take in the majesty of the San Juan Cathedral and marvel at the spectacular Dominican Convent and El Morris Fortress as you absorb the colourful sights and sounds of the city. The delicious Puerto Rican cuisine is also not to be missed. Further afield, there is 500km of coastline to enjoy, with plenty of sandy beaches and warm turquoise waters in which to enjoy swimming, snorkelling and diving. Active types can also enjoy a plethora of water sports on Puerto Rico, including windsurfing, kitesurfing, paragliding and jet-skiing.
