What do small-batch rum, radio telescopes, and glow-in-the-dark fish have in common? A recipe for a radioactive ceviche cocktail? Nay, dear traveler. They are three things unique to the Puerto Rico experience, which you can discover when you book a stay at a Travelocity Puerto Rico all-inclusive hotel like the Shearaton Old San Juan Hotel. The fact that Puerto Rico produces well more than half of the rum consumed in the United States should come as little surprise. But what may be surprising is that the first asteroid images were recorded at the largest single-dish radio telescope on the planet at the Arecibo Observatory. And the island territory has not one, but three bays where bioluminescent sea life shine like an underwater starry night. Those aren’t the only reasons to visit Puerto Rico though. The inviting waters, seemingly endless beaches, and subtropical rainforest do a grand job of attracting tourists as well, but the rum does help.
What are the best beaches in Puerto Rico?
- Flamenco Beach: Not only is Flamenco beach a superlative sandy shore for Puerto Rico, but it’s highly regarded as one of the best beaches on the planet. With the vibrant blue water contrasting with the white sand, you’ll have a tough time leaving the lounge chair when it’s time to head back to your hotel.
- Palomino Island: If a more secluded beach is your ideal vision of tranquility, spend an afternoon away from the throngs of people on Palomino Island. This is, after all, your getaway.
- Caracas Beach: At some point, you are going to want to put the daiquiri down, get up from the lounge chair, and go for a refreshing swim. Noted as the island’s best swimming beach, gorgeous Caracas Beach is a perfect destination to let your cares float away.
When you book your vacation through Travelocity, not only will you have your pick of the best all-inclusive hotels in Puerto Rico, you’ll also be close to the most amazing beaches on the island, whether you need natural beauty, romantic seclusion, or simply a dip in the big blue sea.
Where is a good place to honeymoon in Puerto Rico?
If you are searching for a memorable location for your honeymoon getaway, you really can’t go wrong with any of the all-inclusive hotels in Puerto Rico. But one that stands out above the rest is the Ritz-Carlton, San Juan. With a private beach, a world-class spa, and an exciting casino, this luxurious coastal paradise will certainly contribute to your post-wedding day bliss. Other options for newlyweds are Isla Culebrita and Punta Soladado on the small island of Culebra. Take your pick of white sand or pebbly beaches, or snorkeling and a couple’s massage. You can’t go wrong, either way. If you are more of an adventurous duo, you could stay at one of the resorts on the main island and trade the private beach for a pulse-pumping turn on the world’s longest zip line, a hike in the rainforest, or a kayak tour of one of the bioluminescent bays.
Let Travelocity help you book your upcoming Puerto Rican vacation. Whether you want relaxing days on a quiet beach, a round on a championship golf course, or some quality time with the local subtropical flora and fauna, the U.S. territory has it all. Plus, rum. They have rum, too.
