Today on the LastMinute Transfer blog, we take you on a journey through this island corner full of surprises.
Discovering Puerto Rico
Puerto Rico’s main beach is a crescent of golden sand imported from the Sahara, contrasting with the turquoise blue waters of the Atlantic. Due to its location between two large cliffs, it is shielded from the winds, ensuring a generally calm sea and a sunny ambiance almost all year round.
One of the highlights of this area is that you can not only relax on the beach, but Puerto Rico is also an ideal starting point for numerous water activities. From boat trips that take you to spot dolphins to sports like jet skiing or diving, the options are varied for those seeking adventure.
On the other hand, Puerto Rico’s marina is a vibrant place where yachts, fishing boats, and leisure vessels mix. Here, as dusk falls, Puerto Rico comes alive with a variety of bars, nightclubs, and restaurants offering everything from traditional Canarian cuisine to international dishes. It’s the perfect place to enjoy a dinner with a sea view and then dance to the rhythm of music or explore shops selling everything from souvenirs to high-end fashion.
But beyond the coast, the mountains surrounding Puerto Rico offer the opportunity to delve into nature. The trails take visitors through ravines and valleys, providing panoramic views of the coast and the vast ocean.
Nearby, the Tauro Valley is a natural gem with a desert landscape, cacti, and palm trees. It is also home to one of the most picturesque golf courses on the island, offering sports enthusiasts a unique experience.
