Ticking all the right boxes for a picture-perfect Caribbean getaway, Puerto Rico provides a heavenly blend of Spanish, Indian and African influences.

"A great island to explore by car on day trips, taking in the time-capsule charm of Old San Juan, the designer boutiques of Condado and pristine beaches of Culebra, reached by ferry."

A self-governing commonwealth of the United States, it’s awash with white sandy beaches, diverse tropical terrain, easily accessible diving and snorkelling spots, plus the bioluminescent bays of Vieques that give you some brilliantly unique marine-based experiences.

There’s a fun melting pot of culture too, not to mention an abundance of heritage and an ever-expanding dining and nightclub scene to explore.
