Puerto Rico


Remember the song from West Side Story? "Puerto Rico, you lovely island, island of tropical breezes...always the pineapples growing, always the coffee blossoms blowing..."  Visit this U.S. territory and we bet you'll agree it really is truly lovely.


The Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, including its isles Vieques and Culebra, continues to rank as one of the Caribbean's most underestimated tropical destinations. From the stunning colonial architecture of Old San Juan to wild horses on Culebra's sands, Puerto Rico surprised us with its depth and beauty. An ideal Island Runaway, for a weekend -- or permanently!
