Puerto Rico for couples
Puerto Rico combines classic Caribbean romance with its own special twist. From the heady flavours of rum to the rhythms of salsa, couples holidaying here will find everything they need to make this their most memorable getaway yet.
The beauty of Puerto Rico lies in no small part in its variety. Here you can lounge under a Caribbean sun with your feet buried in soft sand, but the islands offer much more than classic beach break fare. This is a land where you can discover colonial architecture one day, go scuba diving the next and sway to salsa music the day after. So, it is truly a destination with a lot to offer all kinds of couples.
Plus, it's possible to pick from luxurious beachfront hotels or smaller, cosier establishments for a more secluded experience. So, whatever your idea of the perfect romantic place to stay, you'll be able to find it in Puerto Rico.
Puerto Rico has so much to offer couples keen to share some thrilling, unforgettable experiences together. Few activities are more romantic than a spot of snorkelling or scuba diving in sparkling Caribbean waters, and the calibre of the sea life here can compete with the finest in the region. Together, you can discover underwater caves, drop-offs, reefs and much more.
Back on dry land, you can enjoy an exhilarating hike to the spectacular La Mina Falls. Taking approximately 45 minutes from the Palo Colorado Visitors Center, this hike is best completed early in the morning to avoid the crowds and give you the opportunity to bask in a little romantic seclusion in front of these sublime 35 ft falls.
In the evening, why not head out for a little salsa? Puerto Ricans love to spend their nights salsa dancing, and it's easy even for total beginners to join in - there are just six basic steps that are simple to get to grips with. You and your partner will be swaying to the sounds of salsa in no time.
Ultimate romantic experiences
If you like the sound of classic romance, Puerto Rico's beautiful beaches are a natural place to visit. However, you can make your trip all the more special by seeking out one of the destination's arresting bioluminescent beaches, such as Bioluminescent Bay. For the best experience, book yourselves on a guided tour to see the magic of the water lit up with shimmering green sparks, and find out exactly what it is that causes the enchanting phosoherance.
Another good choice for an evening for two is sampling Puerto Rico's fabulous cuisine, which blends Taino, Spanish and African flavours and culinary styles. Here, you can taste some of the most varied dishes in the Caribbean, prepared by some of the region's finest chefs. Among the highlights are the high-end restaurants in Old San Juan and the roadside stalls in Guavate.
End your day sipping rum cocktails on the west coast as the sun slips below the horizon. An impressive 70 per cent of the rum consumed around the world comes from Puerto Rico, and its longstanding rum traditions make this one of the world's finest destinations for enjoying the spirit at its best.
With so many tempting possibilities for couples, Puerto Rico manages to combine classic and singular attractions to make this one of the most exciting romantic destinations in the Caribbean.
