Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico is an unincorporated U.S. territory in the Caribbean islands. San Juan, the capital of Puerto Rico, is the largest city in the island. It is also the busiest and largest cruise port in the Caribbean. Puerto Rico attracts tourists with its rich heritage and dynamic culture. The island has a beautiful landscape of mountains, waterfalls, and colorful Spanish colonial buildings. Make sure to have El Marro and the El Yunque tropical rainforest in your list of places to visit.

These photos are from our Eastern Caribbean cruise trip during the second week of February, 2019.
