Fora’s Take

Puerto Rico is an amazing destination for a quick get away from the States. It's also one of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean and an affordable destination. This island is very diverse. You can enjoy tropical beaches, but at the same time you can go hiking El Yunque National Forest or enjoy some time in the country side. You can enjoy many travel experiences designed to connect you with locals.
