Travel is a big deal to me. Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve been a bit of a gypsy. I’ve lived in several US states, traveled all over North America and lived for over a decade in Europe, traveling between several countries. But one of the places that I long to explore is Puerto Rico. Rich in culture, with beautiful beaches and rainforests and some of the best food in the world, the All-Star Island is one of those places that is a no-brainer to visit. As an American citizen, you don’t even need a passport or to visit a currency exchange! Just hop a plane and Live your own 5-star vacation story in Puerto Rico.
Imagine it! Puerto Rico has 270 miles of coastline and featured in the Top 10 Beaches from Travel Channel — including Flamenco Beach in Culebra, often cited as one of the best beaches in the world. It also contains the only rainforest under US national park service – El Yunque. San Juan, the capitol city, is full of history and old world charm – perfect for those who want to learn and explore. And the food! Not only are there several Puerto Rican delicacies to discover (Mofongo. Asopao. Lechón.), but more than 70% of rum sold in the US comes from Puerto Rico. You can even tour the distilleries!
Puerto Rico Tourism recently partnered with popular travel review site Trip Advisor to transform real traveler 5-star reviews into stunningly beautiful short films narrated by Puerto Rican stars.

I’ll be honest – this amazing paradise is one of the top places I want to visit in the next couple of years. It is the perfect family-friendly vacation that would be such a great experience for our kids. My heart soars just thinking about the adventure. Whether it is kite flying on the grasses of El Morro (a fort on the Atlantic) or exploring the Museo del Niño (children’s museum) in Old San Juan or even seeing the Parque de Bombas – the first firehouse in the Caribbean, there are plenty of attractions that are perfect for children.
