Sometimes, a quick romantic getaway is what the two of you need. Work has been stressful, the kids have seemed extra noisy the past couple weeks, and you’re simply just tired of fumbling through commuting traffic every day. Fortunately for American citizens, Puerto Rico is a quick direct flight away, and you don’t even need your passport to get there.
The U.S. territory is teeming with vibrant people and a lively culture that’s sure to provide some excitement in your relationship. Go to one of Puerto Rico’s famed beaches, try some local food, or dance to your heart’s content at a nightclub. Whatever you choose to do, you’ll need a place to stay (unless you have family or friends you can crash with, but that’s not very romantic).
So, whether you’re coming to P.R. for another romantic getaway or joining thousands of others who’ve had honeymoons in Puerto Rico, check out our list of the best honeymoon resorts in Puerto Rico.
