‘You’re not dreaming…’
Volcanic outflows, ancient civilizations and lapping tides have all formed the fascinating island of Puerto Rico. Explorers will find a mysterious land overcome with uncharted terrain and striking relics from the lost Taino culture. These wonders are complemented by the elaborate casinos, thumping discos and premier Puerto Rican restaurants that fill the resort areas. Swaying palms border the soft sands and clear waters of Puerto Rico’s beaches. Miles of breathtaking coastline introduce the island and have spawned the useful slogan, ‘You’re not dreaming… you’re in Puerto Rico.’
The story of Puerto Rico is told through the mysterious ruins, ancient structures and astonishing museums that adorn the island. Tour through a 16th century gothic church or visit the stone courts of a forgotten tribe. Centuries of world influence have created an eclectic culture with Indian, Spanish and African heritage. The dynamic background of the Puerto Rican people is seen through the songs, dancing and delicious food that accompany every festival.
Rugged Mountains and White Streams
The volcanic origins of Puerto Rico have created an island rich in tropical flora, rugged mountains and white flowing streams. Repel down rocky cliffs. Climb to towering vistas.

No matter your location, Puerto Rico’s beautiful terrain is a backdrop that can’t be ignored.
The capital of Puerto Rico is also known as the capital of Caribbean nightlife and entertainment.

Visitors will enjoy the live music, bustling bars and nightly entertainment provided by many of the resorts.
Weddings and Romance
From the sand on the shore to the peaks of the mountains, Puerto Rico is an island made for romantic endeavors. Stand barefoot on brilliant white sands and let the setting sun witness your union.

Many all inclusive resorts in Puerto Rico offer comprehensive wedding packages and expert advise for the flawless implementation of your destination wedding or honeymoon.

Puerto Rico, meaning “Rich Port,” has been a coveted island since it was first inhabited in 4500 B.C. These mysterious people dominated the island until their replacement by the Taino Indians in 800 A.D. It wasn’t until Columbus’ famous 1493 voyage that European contact was made. Flourishing coffee plantations and slaves from Africa contributed to the success of this now Spanish colony. In 1898, Puerto Rico officially joined the United States as a result of the Treaty of Paris, paving the way for a blossoming tourism industry. Old forts, mid-century churches and ancient courtyards still stand as a modern testament to Puerto Rico’s history.
The most exuberant display of Puerto Rican culture is found in the Le Lo Lai Festival. This is a great way to see Puerto Rico’s history of Taino, African and Spanish influence in its finest harmony. Native music, colorful dresses and traditional dances clash several times a year at this all-encompassing celebration. Even during the “off-season” of this festival, the spirit of Le Lo Lai can be seen every night through the delicious dishes and cheerful faces of the Puerto Rican people.
