Puerto Rico in a nutshell
Puerto Rico is a predominately mountainous Caribbean island in the Greater Antilles, and is an unincorporated territory of the United States. Other main islands in the Puerto Rico archipelago include Vieques, Mona and Culebra. Puerto Rico itself measures approximately 100 miles by 35 miles. Modern and busy Puerto Rico does have an old town and heritage sites you can explore, and there are fourteen state forests – that includes the Guanica Dry Forest (a UN Biosphere Reserve) and El Yunge rainforest.
The lush and quiet island of Vieques, located seven miles off the east coast of Puerto Rico, boasts gorgeous unspoilt beaches (both white and black sand), a bioluminescent bay, classy accommodation, and a chance to “get away from it all”.
