The capital city of San Juan buzzes with energy, as historic fortresses line cobblestone streets, and colorful colonial buildings house bars and nightclubs. Peace reigns on the nearby island of Vieques, home to undisturbed beaches, mangrove forests, and wildlife refuges.
Puerto Rico features everything from 5-star accommodations with beachfront villas and private pool cabanas offering bottle service and massages to cozy boutique hotels with courtyard hammocks and yoga classes. Plenty of hilltop rental homes include poolside lounges and panoramic Caribbean views.
San Juan offers plenty of water-based adventures off the coast of its massive beaches, including snorkeling, swimming, and jet skiing.
