Explore Puerto Rico with Elegant Resorts
Puerto Rico (meaning ‘rich port’) is an exotic hideaway packed with pristine beaches, lush mountains, rainforests and valleys, a melange of Spanish Colonial and Neo Classical architecture and a melting pot of warm and friendly nationalities. Additionally, it is not only the home of the largest rum distillery in the world (which produces the most famous brand of Puerto Rico’s national drink, Bacardi), but also the Latin American salsa.
Our featured properties are located on the eastern side of the island. The cosmopolitan, fast-paced capital, San Juan, is earning itself a reputation as one of North America’s trendiest urban destinations and is ideal for a short stay to enjoy the cultural aspects and shopping opportunities of its Old Town, while seven miles off the coast is the much smaller, more unspoilt and laid-back Vieques Island which comprises superb white-sand beaches which enfold the island, coral reefs, palm trees, pretty little fishing villages and verdant countryside.
You’ll find a wealth of activities to enjoy here, including scuba-diving, hiking, mountain-biking, horse-riding and zip-lining. And being less than four hours away from New York City by air, for example, Puerto Rico also offers a great option for a superbly eclectic two or three-centre holiday, with excellent flight connections to and from the Americas and Europe.
