Things To Do Puerto Rico


Beaches

There are over 300 stunning beaches in Puerto Rico to enjoy.  Visitors to the island don’t even have to leave San Juan to enjoy Puerto Rico’s gorgeous beaches.

Playa Condado, Ocean Park and Isla Verde line the shore of San Juan’s various districts.

The majority of white sand beaches are located off the east shores of mainland Puerto Rico.  One such is Isla Palominos, just one hour from Farjardo.

If you fancy a spot of surfing then Playa Jobos and Playa Crashboat, near Aquadillas in the Northwest are both excellent choices.

Another excellent choice is to head for Rincón where you will find more than 12 white washed beaches such as Playa Barrero and Sandy Beach.

The most beautiful beaches however are found in the Spanish Virgin Islands.   On Vieques, you will be spoiled for choice with Playa Sombe, Playa Media Luna, Green beach, Red Beach and Blue Beach.  But the most spectacular of all beaches is Playa Flamenco located on Culebra.


CAVING

Puerto Rico is full of caves and both children and adults will be fascinated by Rio Camuy Cave Park (Parque Las Cavernas de Río Camuy), a huge 268-acre park of underground caves.  A tram carries you down to the caverns, which you explore by foot. Look out for all sorts of animals including frogs, bats, crabs, and other creepy-crawlies.


FISHING

Puerto Rico offers excellent deep-sea fishing out of San Juan and most of the resort towns.   The North shore is known as Blue Marlin Alley.   Sailfish, tuna and wahoo are other game fish you are likely to catch.  Many world records have been set in Puerto Rico.


SURFING

Puerto Rico offers some of the best surfing in the Caribbean centered in Rincón where Rincón surf school offers classes and rents or sells boards.  Other prime surfing sites include Boca de Cangrejos, off San Juan, Play Jobos and Playa Crashboat which is in the north west of the island.


BIRDING AND WILDLIFE VIEWING

The varied ecosystems of Puerto Rico are habitats for a veritable ark of colourful creatures including 270 species of birds.   If you visit El Yunque National Forest, you are very likely to spot a Puerto Rican parrot.  Waders and waterfowl are easily seen in San Juan Nature Reserve.

If you want to see marine turtles laying eggs, then head to Vieques wildlife refuge.  And for whale watching, then Rincón is the best bet.


DIVING

Puerto Rico is a diver’s paradise with fabulous coral reefs surrounding much of the island.   In winter it is best to head to the south shore of Puerto Rico as the north coast can experience some high seas. There are almost 300 species of fish in the seas around Puerto Rico to see as well as marine turtles and large rays.


HIKING

Puerto Rico has more than a dozen forest reserves as well as lots of mountains and is heaven for the avid hiker. You can choose to do very diverse hikes. For examples one day you could hike El Yunque and the next the costal trails of Bosque Estatal De Guanica. El Yunque is the most popular trekking spot with over 36 miles of trails to enjoy. The El Toro (trade winds) trail is particularly popular as it leads through four difference habitats. The big tree trail is also very popular and it is extremely well maintained.
