Find art splattered in Santurce’s lively and colorful district, a friendly neighborhood adorned with bright murals, amazing restaurants, theaters, museums, and more. Wherever you go, there are many ways for you to experience the welcoming Boricua spirit of Puerto Rico.
From Beaches to Mountains
The Island is the ideal destination to embrace natural beauty through scenic routes and picture-perfect beaches. Venture into the sole tropical rainforest within the U.S. National Forest System, El Yunque, boasting abundant flora and fauna, over 20 waterfalls, several rivers, and ancient petroglyphs. Or take a scenic drive to the northwestern region and journey underground to the Río Camuy Caves, the world’s third-largest underground river and one of the most complex cave systems on the planet. Puerto Rico has you covered on your beach-bumming, with nearly 300 miles of coastline. Find a wide range of aquatic activities available, such as swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, and surfing on award-winning beaches like Crash Boat and Flamenco.
Puerto Rican cuisine is a delightful fusion of many influences, creating a unique burst of flavors to excite your palate. The thriving restaurant scene can be experienced throughout the Island, with each town having its own take on traditional and staple dishes. From street food to fine dining, you can relish flavorful traditional dishes, such as alcapurrias or mofongos, and international twists with locally sourced ingredients. Explore iconic places like Guavate’s pork route or new entertainment centers like Distrito T-Mobile; local restaurants showcase Puerto Rican gastronomy in different lights, but they will surely satisfy.
