Puerto Rico Holidays

Latin infused Caribbean beauty

An island packed with fun and adventure, Puerto Rico is just waiting for you to explore.

Stroll the cobbled streets of Old San Juan, a city rich in history where you’ll feel like you are stepping back in time. We recommend visiting the forts which have some spectacular views over the city and ocean. Your Puerto Rico adventure would not be complete without kayaking at a bio bay and there are very few bio bays in the world. Puerto Rico is home to three of them, Puerto Mosquito off the coast of the island of Vieques currently holds the Guinness World Record for being the brightest bioluminescent bay. For a real thrill, try out the ‘El Monstruo’ - the longest zip-line in the world - the length of 28 football pitches.   

Complete your perfect Puerto Rico holiday by combining your stay with another destination you have dreamed of. Puerto Rico is officially a U.S. territory therefore connections from the USA are great so why not try a city break in either New York, Washington DC or Miami? Or alternatively island hop around the Caribbean with great connections to Antigua, Dominican Republic and Nevis.

Top Tips from our Experts

Martyn

Destination Executive

"For any stay in Puerto Rico i would combine the city and the beach. Spend a few nights in the fascinating Old San Juan before heading to the beach resorts".

Jas

Destination Specialist

"Although it can never be guaranteed, for the best bio bay experience head out on a night when there is as little moonlight as possible".

Tejal

Destination Specialist

"If you find 'El Monstruo' zip line too intense, there is a tamer option called 'La Bestia".
