  • The sun, the sand, the sea and the view make a perfect combination for recharging your "batteries". Had the best time on the island.  more »
  • Beautiful beach off the coast of Puerto Rico. Unfortunately Palominitos, the small spit of sand, is now underwater post hurricane Maria.  more »
  • This is a very special place just off the coast, which was long a private island. Transport over by small boat and escape into Caribbean bliss.  more »

  • This is beautiful. Much beautiful than any place in Hawaii for sure.. Stunning and unique.
  • Beautiful Island, we were on a mini boat excursion at the time. Would recommend for anyone to try with the family and friends.
  • Absolutely breathing. Rich in history. Be careful traveling off of the resorts though, crime is bad and tourists are heavily preyed upon. Also, check your bill before you tip as many places pump you full of alcohol and add 20% to your tip. We found that out after a few days of paying tips without knowing they were already adding them.
  • You absolutely NEED to visit if you're in Puerto Rico. It's breathtaking in person. I've only seen water like this in Croatia.
  • Beautiful shores, crystal clear waters, spectacular sand.
