Here's the thing about Puerto Rico: it's kiiiinda awesome.
I mean, it's a U.S. territory (meaning no passports for Americans, no changing money, no language barrier), a short flight from the lower 48, AND an affordable place to escape to for a few days.
Oh, and did I mention that it has a tropical Caribbean climate year-round?
Yeah, Puerto Rico really impressed me. Not only is it easy to travel to, but it's also got just about everything you could want in a destination – pretty beaches, rainforest, cute cities, culture and history, delicious food, and plenty of adventure beyond the big resorts.
And I think Puerto Rico might just impress/surprise you, too.
I could go on and on about why Puerto Rico makes a great travel destination. But, for now, I'm going to let these photos do the convincing.
(But stay tuned for a more in-depth post on what to do/see in Puerto Rico later this month!)
