Puerto Rico is still feeling some of the effects of Hurricane Maria...yet, it remains one of the world's best romantic getaway destinations. Not only is this Caribbean island wide open for honeymoon business, but there are lots of great reasons that 2019 in particular is the perfect time to visit. Here are our favorite reasons to take a romantic getaway to the Isle of Enchantment:
The Beautiful Beaches Are Ready
A honeymoon to Puerto Rico isn't complete without a trip to the beach. Thankfully, Puerto Rico's idyllic tropical beaches are ready for you to splash, sunbathe, and relax the days away. Puerto Rico has some of the best beaches in the world, and after being cleared post-Maria, they are as beautiful as ever.
Hotels & Resorts Are Open
A large number of Puerto Rico's most beautiful and romantic hotels and resorts are open for business. From high-end resorts to charming beachside boutiques, from quaint island B & B's to everything in between, hotels in Puerto Rico are ready for you. They would love the chance to make your honeymoon unforgettable!
Top Attractions Are Open
Puerto Rico's top attractions are open. The jungly trails of El Yunque rainforest with all its lush foliage and wildlife, beckon couples to explore. Tour operators are ready to take you on adventures by land, air, and sea all over the island. Beautiful colonial Old San Juan is also ready for your honeymoon in Puerto Rico, with restaurants and shops serving visitors as always. History buffs can explore the fort overlooking the sea on the edge of town to their heart's content.
Puerto Rico is an Affordable Honeymoon
For an affordable honeymoon that doesn't skimp on Caribbean beauty, luxury, or fun, Puerto rico is perfect. Things tend to be less expensive here than in the continental U.S., and the airfare is cheaper than it is getting to many other Caribbean islands. As if you needed another reason to take a getaway to Puerto Rico, affordability makes it a no-brainer.
The Islands Await You
Enchanting offshore islands like stunning Vieques await, with restuarants, hotels, and beaches ready to embrace you. Known as "The Spanish Virgin Islands" to some, Vieques shines with quiet untamed beauty. From incredible sunsets to wild animals including lizards, turtles, and almost 200 bird species, Vieques is a nature-lover's paradise. Kick back, relax, and enjoy the chill vibe as you discover miles of virgin beachfront, where there's nothing but soft sand and swaying palms.
Your Honeymoon Helps the Island
This is our favorite reason of all. Your honeymoon, and all tourist revenues, help the island rebuild and keep workers paid. It keeps restaurants, attractions, beaches, and hotels in business, and puts money into the local Puerto Rican economy. By taking a honeymoon in Puerto Rico, you are literally helping Puerto Rico rebuild from Maria. Every dollar you bring to the island helps its habitats, business, and people recover from the hurricane and become stronger than ever. So book that trip and order that mojito!
Oh, and hey -- if you want to take your honeymoon do-goodery to the next level, there are tons of great organizations in Puerto Rico that make it super easy to volunteer. You'll both feel good that you spent part of your honeymoon really giving back to the island!
