Itinerary


Following my visit to Puerto Rico in 2011, initially I was trying to get my head around whether the destination was trying to be Caribbean, Latin American or North American but then came to the conclusion that it’s a mixture, so suits all tastes. Las Vegas, meets Miami, meets Beverly Hills, meets Latin America.

I love the fact you can either use Puerto Rico as a one-stop shop, purely beach or combination of history and culture, beach, nature,


adventure sports, shopping, nightlife and gambling, plus a great gateway to combine with other Caribbean islands, Miami or New York or use San Juan as a weekend getaway for couples, singles or groups of friends celebrating birthdays and other occasions.
