INSIDER TIPS

Puerto Rico isn't just stunning beaches, it has beautiful rainforests and one of the largest cave systems in the world

There are smaller offshore islands off the main part of Puerto Rico, Culebra and Vieques are two of the most popular. On Vieques you can visit Mosquito Bay which has the brightest bioluminescent water in the world or the famous black sand beach of Playa Negra
