Natural Marvels

From a coastline of nearly 300 sandy beaches to maze-like caves to bioluminescent pools, there’s much to explore here. Puerto Rico is home to three of the five bioluminescent bays in the world (Laguna Grande in Fajardo, Mosquito Bay on Vieques and La Parguera in Lajas). These bays are an awe-inspiring sight at night, packed with millions of single-celled organisms that light up the water like glowing stars. The island is also home to several caves, including the famous Cañón de Tanamá in Utuado, where visitors can explore a network of caverns, canyons and tunnels amid limestone cliffs.

 

Adventures by Land and Sea

From land to sea, there’s plenty to keep visitors busy in Puerto Rico. Tour the only tropical rainforest in the U.S. National Forest System, El Yunque, to witness a wide variety of plant and animal species – some only found here. Located in northeastern Puerto Rico, the forest has several trails for hiking and is also home to ancient petroglyphs. Architecture lovers will want to explore some of the centuries-old buildings here, including historically significant forts and museums. Cool off
