One of the northernmost islands in the Caribbean, Puerto Rico is aptly named. “Rico” means rich in Spanish and this island is positively overflowing with natural riches. First settled some 4,000 years ago, the island is part of an archipelago that includes Vieques, Culebra, with its 28 uninhabited islands, Culebrita, Cayo Luis Pena and Palomino Island.
Sparkling beaches, such as La Perla and Flamenco, wrap around the main island’s forests and towns, and cover the many smaller surrounding islands. With so many uninhabited islands, there’s plenty of unspoiled paradise for you to discover.
Explore the Mona Island, the “Galapagos of the Caribbean”, UNESCO forts and, of course, try the delicious local rum and piña coladas. If you love wildlife, there are 20 beautiful forests, such as El Yunque National Forest with 20 species of orchid. La Coca waterfall is worth a visit, as are the bioluminescent bays, such as Mosquito Bay, where the waters glow as you swim. If you are a foodie, order mofongo, a mound of mashed fried plantains and one of Puerto Rico’s most famous dishes.
