Though Puerto Rico is still considered an unincorporated territory of the United States and not yet an official state, it does get credit for being home to the oldest city in the United States territory in San Juan.
Puerto Rico is also differentiated from the United States in its geography—nestled in the Caribbean near Jamaica and the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico’s climate is just about as perfect as you could ask for if planning a Caribbean all inclusive vacation.
Puerto Rico averages a temperature of about 83 degrees in the winter months and about 85 degrees in the summer months, and is temperate most of the year round, though there can be hurricane seasons during May through November, and the peak tourism season for Puerto Rico all inclusives tends to be December through April.
Like many of the nearby Caribbean Islands such as Punta Cana or the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico offers a slew of all inclusive vacation packages, resort hotels and championship internationally recognized golf resorts.
Geography for the All Inclusive Tourist
Puerto Rico’s northern coast is considered the main hub—here you’ll find attractions such as historic Old San Juan, and the tranquil white-sand beaches of Dorado.
On the East coast, roughly 45 minutes from San Juan is where Puerto Rico departs from its old-town charm and exhibits some splendid greenery in its place—the El Yunque Rainforest is located in this region and friendly to Caribbean vacation-goers wishing to hike through it. Central Puerto Rico contains amazing green landscapes, more areas of rain forest and the famous Botanical Gardens in Caguas.
If you’re into surfing or diving, check out the western coast of Puerto Rico—it’s home to some of the best surfing destinations in the Caribbean, including the uninhabited Isla de Mona.
