Puerto Rico (puerto-rico) — resorts, tours and holidays in Puerto Rico!

The secret of Puerto Rico’s unique atmosphere lies in the history and culture of this island. On the one hand, every visitor feels like in the USA: laws, regulations, modern technologies and even school buses — everything is like somewhere in southern California. On the other hand, Puerto Rico is a tropical paradise, with turquoise oceans, colorful fish, palm trees, lush tropical greenery, sweet scents of exotic flowers, and rosy sunsets. On the third hand, this is certainly Latin America, and on the fourth, this is, of course, the story of great navigators, the discovery of the New World, fearless filibusters and lost treasures. All this makes Puerto Rico an amazing island, attracting more than 8 million tourists annually, mostly from the United States, of course. They appreciate this island for its cosmopolitanism and openness, and for its total lack of prejudice.

Puerto Rico is divided into 78 municipalities, which in turn are divided into districts, and those into sectors (Mona Island is part of the municipality of Mayagüez (Spanish: Mayagüez) Each municipality has its own mayor, elected for a 4-year period. The first municipality (formerly known as the «city»), San Juan, was formed in 1521. In the 16th century, two more municipalities were formed, Coamo (Coamo) and San Germán (San Germán), both in 1570.

Airports:

Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport (IATA: SJU, ICAO: TJSJ, FAA LID: SJU) is an international airport, one of the largest in the Caribbean, that receives most of the international and domestic flights. Located in the town of Carolina, 14 km from San Juan.

History

During his second expedition to the New World in 1493, Christopher Columbus declared the Puerto Rico archipelago the property of the Spanish crown. The indigenous population, the Taino Indians, were enslaved, and as a result of infectious diseases introduced by Europeans, they practically disappeared from the face of the earth. Spain ruled Puerto Rico for over 400 years, despite attempts by France, the Netherlands and England to take over the island.

As a result of the Spanish-American War of 1898, Spain ceded the island to the United States. Currently, Puerto Rico has a republican form of government under the jurisdiction of the United States. The chief executive of the island is the governor, and the head of state is the President of the United States. Puerto Rico is a US territory, not a state, and since 1917 all Puerto Ricans are American citizens.

The nature of relations with the United States is at the center of the lively internal political life of the island. The registered four political parties have been debating among themselves for many years whether Puerto Rico should remain an American territory, become a full US state

or an independent state.

The capital of Puerto Rico, the city of San Juan, was founded by the Spanish colonizers in 1521. It is not only the oldest city in the United States founded by Europeans, but also almost the oldest European city in Latin America, in second place after Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic. Unlike neighboring islands, Old San Juan has been perfectly preserved in its original form thanks to the efforts of local cultural figures who have achieved a ban on new buildings and demanded that any restoration work, even in private mansions, be coordinated with the local Institute of Culture.

Currently, Puerto Rico has become a major tourist center with a developed infrastructure.

Geography

Puerto Rico consists of the main island of Puerto Rico and many smaller islands and reefs, including Mona (Isla de Mona), Vieques (Vieques), Culebra (Culebra), Desecheo (Desecheo) and Caja de Muertos (Caja de Muertos). ). Of the last five islands, only Vieques and Culebra are inhabited throughout the year. Mona Island is inhabited only by employees of the Puerto Rican Ministry of National Resources.

Mountains in Puerto Rico

The main island is 170 km long and 60 km wide, mostly mountainous with large coastal areas in the northern and southern parts. The main mountain range of the island is called «La Cordillera Central», which means «central ridge», it is also home to the highest point of Puerto Rico — Mount Cerro de Punta (Cerro de Punta), an altitude of 1338 m above sea level. Another important peak, Mount El Yunque, 1065 m above sea level, is located in the Caribbean National Forest in the municipality of Sierra de Luquillo. The island’s capital city of San Juan is located on the northern coast of the island.

Puerto Rico has 17 lakes, none of which are natural, and over 50 rivers, most of which flow from the main mountain range. In the northern part of the island, the rivers are wider and more full-flowing than in the southern.

Rio Camai National Cave Park is a karst area in northeastern Puerto Rico. This area is famous for its completely surreal limestone formations and is rightfully considered one of the best places in the world for caving. More than 200 caves have been discovered in this region, some of them have a colossal internal volume, and the Kamai River is one of the largest underground rivers in the world.

Attractions

The secret of the unique atmosphere of Puerto Rico is hidden in the history and culture of this island. On the one hand, every visitor feels like in the USA: laws, regulations, modern technologies and even school buses — everything is like somewhere in southern California. On the other hand, Puerto Rico is a tropical paradise, with turquoise oceans, colorful fish, palm trees, lush tropical greenery, sweet scents of exotic flowers, and rosy sunsets. On the third hand, this is certainly Latin America, and on the fourth, this is, of course, the story of great navigators, the discovery of the New World, fearless filibusters and lost treasures. All this makes Puerto Rico an amazing island, attracting more than 8 million tourists annually, mostly from the United States, of course. They appreciate this island for its cosmopolitanism and openness, and for its total lack of prejudice. Only here you can find a Miami-style shopping center-style mega-mall located right in the middle of the jungle, here you can spend a crazy evening in a trendy club located right by the walls of a 15th-century fortress, or spend money in a casino located literally on the beach.

And if you are tired of the rhythms of modern life — go to Isla Mona, a real «Jurassic Park». Here, the history of our planet will appear before you as an open book: unusual geological formations, flocks of huge iguanas like dinosaurs that came from a distant time, bats catching fish from the sea in flight … Or go to the small island of Culebra to dive in coral reefs and relax on almost wild beaches. And surfers at certain times of the year can wait for the legendary 15-meter waves.

Old San Juan will be a real discovery for those who are interested in the times of the development of America by Europeans: this is the best surviving city of the colonial period. In the city, an inquisitive tourist will find many museums dedicated not only to the Spanish history of the island, which began in the 15th century, but also to the pre-Columbian history of the Taino tribe. Despite all the efforts of the conquistadors, the culture of this tribe is still alive and has quite a big impact on the culture, cuisine and atmosphere of the island today. In addition, old San Juan (or it would be more correct to say Puerto Rico — «Rich Port», as the city was called until the 19th century, and the island was named after the Spanish tradition of one of the saints — San Juan, but later geographers confused the two names and the modern version has been fixed on maps) is a wonderful place for walking: old houses and churches, cozy squares, art galleries, restaurants and cafes, small shops and a special Caribbean flavor.

Kitchen

Puerto Ricans call their cuisine «cosina criolla» and trace its ancestry to the traditions of the Arawak and Taino Indian peoples. However, the cuisine of Puerto Rico is very different from the original Indian cuisine, which was based on cereals, various root vegetables, fruits and seafood.

As a result, the mixture of all these components has formed an exotic modern Puerto Rican cuisine, widely known far beyond the borders of the country.

Puerto Rico, and especially its capital, will delight you with an abundance of first-class restaurants specializing in both local cuisine and Spanish, Chinese, French, Greek or Italian cuisine.

All kinds of stews dominate Puerto Rican cuisine. Here you should try «carne guisada puerto ricana» — Puerto Rican beef stew with peppers, onions, garlic, potatoes and olives, as well as «pastellon de carne» meat pies, which are an integral part of the dinner. Soups are also very popular on the island.

Widely known throughout Latin America, frijoles negros soup, made from black beans, is considered by Puerto Ricans to be their “most popular” dish, but there are still disputes about its origin. Another classic soup is chicken and rice sopon de pollo con arros, which is so popular that there are about two hundred recipes alone. Also in the cuisine of Puerto Rico, great attention is paid to fish and seafood.

One of the traditional desserts is pies with fruit jam or custard, it is also interesting to try jelly and guava pies, orange and sweet potato pies and coconut fruit pies.

Puerto Rican strong black coffee is considered the national drink. Tea is popular only as a daily drink, but all kinds of iced fruit juices can be found almost everywhere.

Since the island does not produce wine, the most popular alcoholic beverages are rum and beer — «cherves», the most popular brand of which is Medalla.

Puerto Rico is one of the leading rum producers on the planet — 80% of the rum consumed in the United States is imported from here, so you can find about 200 varieties of first-class rum in any establishment on the island. Imported drinks are also available in most restaurants and bars.

Shopping

The island is often called the Caribbean capital of shopping — in San Juan there are huge modern shopping centers, where even residents of the surrounding islands come to shop. Here is the «Plaza Las Americas» — the largest shopping center in the Caribbean.

Local fashionistas usually dress as if every outing is their last, so shopping lovers will feel at home … and even better, since prices for famous world brands are much lower here than in Europe. In Old San Juan, you’ll find everything from traditional craft shops to famous brands such as Ralph Lauren, Coach, Burberrys, Reebok, Custo Barcelona and Guess as you walk along its cobbled streets. Lovers of jewelry and watches can wander through the jewelry stores, many of which are inherited from generation to generation, and often the connoisseur himself explains the intricacies of his business to stopping by buyers. The main shopping streets in the old town are st. Cristo, Fortaleza, San Francisco. The most popular souvenirs are figurines of saints made of wood (handmade), frogs “coca”, carnival masks made of coconut and papier-mâché, lace (“mundillo”), musical instruments (“quatro”) and, of course, our Bacardi rum, Don Koo and Barrilito.

Don’t forget to buy local coffee, famous for being supplied to the Vatican since the 19th century. The largest mall in the Caribbean, Plaza Las Americas in downtown San Juan, has over 300 stores, including well-known brands such as Carolina Herrera, Michael Kors, BCBG, Victoria’s Secret, Zara and everyone’s favorite Macy’s.

By visiting factory outlets located outside the city limits, you can save more than half the purchase price compared to European stores by purchasing products from Kenneth Cole, Lacoste, Nine West, BCBG, Calvin Klein, Banana Republic, Gap, Tommy Hilfiger , Nike, Nautica, Polo Ralph Lauren

Sports and outdoor activities

Which Puerto Rico beach is the best for you? Puerto Rico’s large coastline stretches for over 270 miles and is teeming with a variety of beaches and water activities. But which beach is the best for snorkeling? Which beach is the cleanest? Which beach is the best for walking? Which beach is best for water sports?

Best private beach

Along the coastline of Puerto Rico there are many secluded beaches where you can find yourself completely alone. On the island of Culebra, this is Resaca Beach, remote from tourist routes and usually deserted.

To the west of San Juan in Manati, there is Mar Chiquita (“Little Sea”) beach. Situated in the shape of a crescent, this picturesque beach is protected by rocks from strong winds and ocean currents.

Not far from the Guánica Dry Forest biosphere reserve is a two-mile stretch of beach called Ballenas Bay, which is more frequented by sea turtles than by humans. Not far from it is an isolated rocky beach Caña Gorda.

If you are sailing from Fajardo, then you can visit the beach on the idyllic Icacos sandbar.

Best Surf Beaches

The best conditions for surfing in San Juan are offered by Punta Las Marias Beach in Ocean Park. In neighboring Manati, Los Tubos beach and La Pared beach in Luquilla are the most popular among surfers. However, the best beaches in Puerto Rico for surfing are located on the west coast of the island in the tourist region of Porta del Sol and its capital, Rincón. The main surfing center here is Maria’s Beach, Punta Higuero, Puntas Beach and Spanish Wall Beach are also very popular. In the rest of the Porta del Sol region, Surfer’s Beach, Wilderness, Playa Crash Boat, Shacks Beach and Jobos Beach are popular among surfers.

Best diving beaches

The coast of Vieques Island has a number of beaches that are great for diving, the best of which are Blue Beach and Playa Esperanza. On the island of Culebra, the best beach for underwater sports is Carlos Rosario, the rich underwater world on the island also features West Beach, as well as the southern coast of the island in the Culebra reef area. Playa Shacks is famous for its «Blue Hole» for snorkeling.

The cleanest beaches in Puerto Rico

According to the international volunteer program The Blue Flag, the following beaches are the best in terms of water quality in Puerto Rico:

— El Escambron in San Juan;

— Carolina Beach in Carolina;

— Flamenco Beach on Culebra Island;

— Seven Seas Beach in Fajardo;

— Punta Salinas in Toa Baha.

The best beaches for excursions, walks and active beach holidays

If you like to be the center of attention and want to see something interesting, then the best beaches are the beaches along the strip in Isla Verde and Condado. Sun Bay Beach in Vieques is a real center for beach lovers. And the famous Flamenco Beach is one of the main reasons to visit Culebra. Sandy Beach in Rikon is perfect for an active beach holiday. Not far from Fajardo is the picturesque island resort of Palomino, which is part of the El Conquistador Hotel and Golden Door Spa.

Beaches with selected attractions

Some beaches in Puerto Rico are known for specific things. So on the beaches of Puntas Beach and Domes Beach in winter, you can watch whales. In Ricone at Antonio Beach and in Vieques at Playa Cofi you can observe smooth rocks and sea glass resulting from natural erosion. The secluded beach of Puerto Hermina in Quebradillas once served as a cove for smugglers and pirates and may still hold pirate treasures.
