Puerto Rico The Hidden Island Party Spot

Bacardi Bar

Taste the rum and practice the Salsa on the Caribbean island paradise of Puerto Rico.

The islands are located in the Caribbean sea, just east of the Dominican republic, with about 3/4 Spanish and 1/4 English speaking natives. But don’t worry: all tourist areas are primarily English speaking. Puerto Rico is a commonwealth of the United States which includes one main island, Greater Antilles, and several smaller islands and keys.

While largely mountainous, you’ll find spectacular, sandy beaches along the northern coastline.

Sandals left on Seven Seas beach in Puerto RicoImagine sunbathing, surfing, kayaking and golfing by day, then partying by night within mild, tropical marine climate ranging between 75 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit year-round. Escape from the rat race and experience some of the finest dining, gaming, pulsing discos and bars.

Indulge on the finest Spanish cuisine with a unique American, African and Taino twist. Taste succulent corn and fruits, crunchy cod fritters, black bean soup, kettle-cooked stews, lamb, fried beefsteak and onions, plus barbecued pig. For desert, island guests enjoy some of the finest banana cupcakes, custard and nisperos de batata, or sweet potato balls with cloves, coconut and cinnamon. Then, don’t forget to tantalize your taste buds with Puerto Rican coffee, beer or rum of any shade, the national drink.

As the sun sets, the fun explodes from the cobble-stoned city of San Juan to Santurce and the Condado-Isla Verde strip. Place your bet at hotel casinos, enjoy fantastic live jazz and wild nightclubs. Then take a midnight dip in the temperate tropical waters.
