What About Puerto Rico? 

Is Puerto Rico Ready? 

After Hurricane Maria hit in 2017, there is no doubt that Puerto Rico and its infrastructure took a hit. However, Maria served as a true test to the people's strength and resilience. While many hotels, resorts, and venues used this opportunity to refurbish and update their properties, almost all well established locales are back and in full force!  

Even after all of the damage that was done, Puerto Rico, and more specifically the San Juan area is MORE than ready for you!  

 

Culture, History, & Sights

With history dating back to Spanish settlers in 1521, Puerto Rico boasts a rich and extensive history. From its early days of Spanish settlement, to becoming a U.S Territory in 1898, the story of Puerto Rico will blow you away.  

Additionally, Puerto Rico is renowned as one of the most naturally diverse and beautiful islands in the Caribbean. With rainforests, jungles, beaches, and the world's most famous bioluminescent bays, the adventures to be had are unlimited! And we haven't even touched on the people, music, city streets, food, or dancing! 

No Hassle Travel & Easy Access

Anyone who has been to Puerto Rico knows that you get a taste of a completely different culture and way of life from the mainland U.S, yet you get the benefit of high-end infrastructure and accomodation.  

In addition to this, there are many direct flights into San Juan International Airport (SJU) from all over the country, including Washington, D.C & Virginia.  

EVEN BETTER...  

Since Puerto Rico is a U.S Territory, NO PASSPORTS ARE NEEDED!
