A U.S. territory encompassing one big island and several smaller ones, Puerto Rico appeals to visitors from around the globe with its rich history, pleasant climate, natural beauty, and renowned local cuisine. Most tourists take a vacation in Puerto Rico for that classic seaside experience, though the island offers much more than just sun and sand. Tours of Puerto Rico usually start in the city of San Juan, which boasts a trendy bar scene and plenty of art museums for visitors looking to add a bit of culture to their vacation. A short drive from the island's urban centers, pristine rainforests serve as peaceful retreats from the city bustle and ensure plenty of chances to spot wildlife and take exhilarating nature walks.

Antigua and Barbuda travel guide

4.1
Scuba & Snorkeling · Beaches · Lookouts
Escape civilization with a holiday in Antigua and Barbuda, a beachgoer's paradise. The shorelines of the two islands are dotted with many beaches, from long stretches of sand to tiny coves and picturesque lagoons. While the larger Antigua houses its fair share of high-end resorts and contains the country capital of St. John's, Barbuda is remarkably undeveloped, boasting swathes of pink sand where you can go for hours without seeing a single person.
