Before you check in to your Puerto Rico all-inclusive hotel, you need to get to the island, of course. Flights leave daily from major US cities to the San Juan Airport (SJU) and Rafael Hernandez Airport (BQN) daily. If you’re a U.S. citizen, you don’t need a passport or visa to visit Puerto Rico; you are only required to show a federal or state ID just like any other time you fly.
Transportation: Once you’re on the ground, rental cars are the most convenient way to get around the island. With 3,500 square miles to explore, wise wanderer, your own set of wheels makes getting from San Juan to Ponce and beyond a lot easier. Pro tip: Some roads in Puerto Rico are undeveloped, so plan your route carefully. You can get to the islands of Culebra and Vieques by ferry or small plane, and in the hub of San Juan you’re able to ditch your own car keys and hail a cab to get around or explore on foot.
Language: Want greet locals when you land? Spanish is the primary language in Puerto Rico. You can greet people will a simple "Hola, como estas?" which translates to "Hello, how are you?" Translation books and phone apps will be among your best tools while you’re visiting PR.
Helpful Tidbits: Electrical outlets in Puerto Rico operate at about 120 volts, which means most US small appliances and electronics are compatible. You may still need a power plug adapter, to fit your appliance in the socket, however. If want to bring some Puerto Rican rum home, remember that customs permits only 1 liter of liquor to be brought into the U.S. when you return. Puerto Rico uses the American Dollar (USD), but don’t be surprised if you hear it referred to as a peso.

This island paradise is in a tropical climate zone, with an average temperature of about 80 degrees near sea level and 70 degrees in the mountains.
