Must visit places in Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico can leave you bewildered if you are a first time visitor. There are so many places to visit it may happen that you don’t cover what you absolutely must visit. If you are in such a position, here is a helpful list of the topmost places in the city that you must visit.

For history buffs, an absolute must-see place is that of El Morro. The visit will have to start at Fort San Felipe del Morro. This is in the northwest part of Old San Juan. The fort was built by the Spaniards to guard and protect the San Juan Bay. This was a place that saw a number of attacks. Today it has become a National Park as well as a World Heritage site. Go all the way to the top for some of the best views of Old San Juan.

Culebra Island is another place that you must visit. Don’t be put off by the fact that the name literally translates to Snake Island. This name came from its shape. This is one island where many people from America and even the mainland of Puerto Rico come for a good time over the weekend. It has some of the world’s most clear waters and has scenic beaches that extend a great length. Flamenco Beach is one of the most popular beaches on this small island.

The bioluminescent bay is something that you must not miss at all. It is on Vieques Island, which in itself is famous as being a bombing testing ground for the US Navy. The bioluminescence that you see in the bay is thanks to millions and millions of microorganisms in the area that tend to leave a long trail of neon blue in the water when disturbed.

Nature lovers can visit El Yunque, Puerto Rico's own tropical rainforest that is located in Río Grande close to some spectacular beaches. There are numerous peaks and troughs to climb through, making it fabulous for those who love to trek.

For those who love to party and love their rum, visiting the Bacardi Factory should definitely be on the cards. You learn about the history of the ingredients. You will even be taught to mix a few drinks yourself.

Puerto Rico has so much to offer. For every kind of experience you seek, you are sure not to be disappointed here.
