Nearly any time of the year would be the best time to visit Puerto Rico! But of course, it’s different for everyone. So, to give you a better handle on why it’s great to visit Puerto Rico at almost any time of the year, here are some of the most interesting reasons you should consider:
Beaches for Romance and Adventure
Puerto Rico is one of the few countries in the world that have beaches which are perfect for idyllic and romantic moments where you can spend building memories that will last over the years. Complementing those romantic beaches are the ones that nature made to enable visitors to engage in fun and exciting adventures: snorkeling, swimming, sailing, and fishing.
Puerto Rican is not so exotic that you’ll automatically balk upon being presented with them, but neither is it also run-of-the-mill bland, tourist dreck. With a socio-cultural heritage that includes the distinct flavorsome tones of Spanish and Caribbean cuisine, it’s impossible to miss with Puerto Rican tapas. However, don’t think that all that Puerto Rico can offer is local food. There are numerous food establishments that cater to various tourist tastes, ranging from Continental to Asian culinary delights.
If your idea of a fun vacation is an energetic round of partying the whole night through, night after night, you’ll surely be satisfied with the Puerto Rico’s club and bar scene. From dive bars to floating nightclubs and elegant, sophisticated dance clubs, Puerto Rico has it all. Cities with popular restaurants and bars are San Juan, Bayamón and Carolina.
Heritage Sites and Other Tourist Spots
Puerto Rico has a rich socio-cultural history, and you’d be hard-pressed to find anything to complain about regarding its abundance of tourist spots to visit. Cathedrals and ancient churches with relics of some religious still buried in them, battle forts with plenty of ancient weaponry, and museums that showcase lives of tribes in times long gone can fill your days with a lot of sightseeing and photo opportunities.
Something for Everyone All Year Round
Puerto Rico truly has something for everyone at anytime of the year, which is why it is not really practical to recommend only one tourist season that’s great for visiting. After all, it is your interests that will determine the places you want to visit. Your itinerary, in turn, can also be determined by your availability, as well as the flight and hotel bookings that you made. Just to be on the safe side, though, keep in mind that for those who are averse to natural challenges while on a trip, the following pieces of advice from Frommer’s, a highly credible and respected travel website (that started out as a series of travel guidebooks) may still prove useful:
Hurricane and Peak Seasons
Frommer’s states that while there are tourists and travel organizations that are wary of the hurricane season (June to November), it is actually in August and December when the most damaging storms have been recorded. And here’s another wise word from Frommer’s: since mid-December to mid-April sees the highest tourist traffic, it’s best to place your reservations at least 2 to 3 months in advance, to be assured of being able to spend winter in Puerto Rico.
