Tourist Information

Visiting Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico has plenty to offer both the casual tourist and the adventure seeker. You may choose to book your travel through a local travel agent and stay at one of the many luxury resorts such as El Conquistador in Fajardo, The El San Juan in Isla Verde or the new W Hotel in Vieques. Perhaps a small chic boutique hotel such as The San Juan Water and Beach Club is more to your liking. There are choices for every taste and style available in the San Juan Metropolitan area. Visit our Accommodations page for more information.

For the real taste of Puerto Rico you may want to consider some "Do IT Yourself" adventures and stay at one of the government sanctioned Paradors located throughout the island. Take advantage of all that the Porta Caribe and Porta del Sol areas have to offer. Plan a surfing adventure in Rincón, camping in Guánica, rent a car and travel the Panoramic Route that runs east to west through the center of the island. These are just a few examples, contact the Tourist Information Centers listed in the table below for more information. Puerto Rico is so much more than San Juan.
