Sunsets, Salsa and Stunning Architecture: Plan a Romantic Getaway to Puerto Rico

Sunsets, Salsa and Architecture: Plan your romantic getaway to Puerto Rico

Imagine packing a bag full of swim suits, flip flops and shorts and jetting away to a Caribbean paradise for a romantic getaway with that special someone in your life.  With over 270 miles of gorgeous coastline and some of the best beaches in the world, the third largest subterranean river in the world, and the only sub-tropical forest in the United States or its territories, Puerto Rico should be on your travel radar.

Puerto Rico offers options for any budget. From luxurious travelers to those looking for budget friendly options, you’ll find it in Puerto Rico. Plus, it’s easy to get to. No passport is required for U.S. citizens and many major U.S. cities on the east coast offer direct flights. You don’t even need to stop at the bank for special currency! Your U.S. dollars are good in Puerto Rico. It really doesn’t get much easier than that!

Puerto Rico also has a colorful history, full of culture and exquisite architecture.  Put on your most comfortable walking shoes and stroll along the streets of Old San Juan to find art, fountains and colorful historic buildings with an old European charm. You’ll find over 400 restored buildings from the 16th and 17th century. Step inside San Juan Bautista Cathedral, the second oldest cathedral in the Americas or visit Castillo de San Cristobal, the largest Spanish fort built in the New World. Rent a car or take a tour beyond the city of San Juan to explore more of the island.

Puerto Rico has incredible natural beauty. By day, you may opt to take a horseback ride along the beach, snorkel off the shore, or climb to the clouds in the El Yunque rainforest. Grab your camera to capture a stunning sunset at Rincon. At night enjoy a guided kayak tour under the stars through one of the Bioluminescent bays for a truly unforgettable romantic getaway.

Dine in one of the many delicious restaurants on the island or reserve a candle-lit table on the beach and eat dinner with your toes in the sand. The food in Puerto Rico combines the unique flavors of Spain, Africa, Taino and America and will leave your mouth-watering long after your visit to the island.


For the ultimate romantic escape, splurge on a luxurious property and ask the concierge to arrange a private massage for two or salsa dance lessons to heat things up. Then plan time to soak in your private Jacuzzi and snuggle until noon. It just doesn’t get any better.

Whether you plan to visit the island to celebrate an anniversary, or simply reignite that flame, Puerto Rico has options for every budget and interest.

Puerto Rico Tourism has recently partnered with Trip Advisor, the popular travel review site to create two short films narrated by Puerto Rican stars to show you why you should visit this incredible island. These reviews will make you want to live your own 5-star vacation story in Puerto Rico today.

Was trying to pick which islands to visit when I take a Caribbean cruise and you've sold me on Puerto Rico! So Puerto Rico and the pig beach and the flamingo beach :)
