7 Days of Eating, Exploring & Adventuring in Puerto Rico
Arts & Culture
Puerto Rico will always have a special place in my heart because my now husband and I got engaged here! Whether you travel here as a couple's getaway or a family friendly adventure, there is something for everyone to enjoy. I would even venture to say that San Juan itself has more vibrancy and culture than any other island in the Caribbean.
