    La Fortaleza and San Juan National Historic Site in Puerto Rico

    Puerto Rico is an archipelago in the Caribbean Sea consisting of the main island, four small islands, and hundreds of cays and islets. The island territory is only 100 miles long and 35 miles wide (8,870 square kilometers). Still, it packs a fantastic diversity of sights, scenery, and culture.

    The real charm of Puerto Rico is its people. The people of the Island are charismatic, hospitable, super joyful, and passionate. They will make you feel like you belong and will even invite you to dance with them. Boricuas, as we call the locals, are optimistic and energetic people, proud of their cultural heritage and history, which emerges from a mix of Taíno, Spanish, and African traditions.

    You can experience the Island in an immersive way through its food, drinks, and music! Taste exotic infusions in dishes and cocktails, dance to the rhythms of salsa, reggaetón, and more, experience first-hand the pride of Puerto Ricans in exciting festivals. But there is so much more to explore in Puerto Rico. Do you dare to discover it?
