A holiday to Puerto Rico will invariably be a lesson in the history of this cultural mix. The island, which has been a US territory for well over a century, experienced the influence of Spanish colonisation – including corresponding influx of slaves from Africa. Other European influences include the influx of poor migrant farmers from Scotland and Ireland, and French migration stemming from neighbouring Haiti and Louisiana in the US.
Despite the mixed history, Puerto Rico is nevertheless a fascinating assimilation of heritage, exemplified in its cuisine and personified in its welcoming people, known for their expressiveness with strangers.
The beach resorts and luxury hotels of Puerto Rico and capital San Juan are a masterclass in grand, elegant architecture and equally indulgent amenities. With private beaches, luxury spas and watersports and activities galore, you and your family will be pampered and doted on. Here also is the destination for romance, a dream wedding, or unparalleled honeymoon experience. Meanwhile the hotels’ restaurants and bars reflect the island’s diverse cultural heritage, offering a wide range of fine dining possibilities from all across the globe.
Furthermore, Puerto Ricans are particularly regarded for their hospitality and warmth of welcome.
Mainly sunny and warm most of the year – average temperature of 26C in the south, a couple of degrees cooler in the north and inland. Rainfall is fairly evenly distributed, and doubles in the rainier season from May to October. Puerto Rico does get hit by the Caribbean Hurricane season, from November to April, and frequent hurricanes occur between August and October.
