Puerto Rico Attractions

Updated on July 23, 2012

Puerto Rico is a colorful, diverse and culturally unique island that offers its visitors many things such as hip, funky restaurants, Spanish forts, shopping malls, the tropical rain forests, glitzy casinos, stunning beaches and caves to explore.

Castillo de San Felipe del Morro

Commonly known as El Morro, is a 16th-century citadel located in San Juan. El Morro is now a World Heritage Site and covers over 70 acres of the craggy northwestern tip of San Juan. This is one of the most visited tourist attractions on the island. It's relatively inexpensive to stroll throughout the old ramparts, costing less than $5 and providing an afternoon worth of entertainment.


The Vieques Biobay

The Vieques Biobay could be listed as one of the natural wonder of the world. It is one of the most bioluminescent bays with its geography, climate and local conservation. The microscopic organism responsible for the glow in the water by night is caused when a protozoan of the family dinoflagellata, is agitated. The most common protozoan in Puerto Mosquito's waters in the Pyrodinium bahamense.


El Yunque

El Yunque Peak is the Caribbean National Forest where more than 100 billion gallons of rain fall each year, creating the lush forest with an incredible variety of plants. This variety consists of more than 240 species of trees, 50 species of ferns and 20 varieties of the tiny conqui frog.



Culebrita is an unpopulated, small island just off the east shore of Culebra and one of the most interesting tropical paradises on earth. It is a nature reserve and home of one of the oldest lighthouses in the Caribbean. The island is only accessible by private boat from the main island of Culebra.There are six beaches on Culebrita, the chief being Turtle Beach. The beach is named for the many sea turtles that use the beach for breeding grounds and the surrounding waters for grazing.


Rio Camuy Caves

Some of the most important caves in the west hemisphere can be found in Puerto Rico. At Cueva del Infierno, over 2000 caves have been discovered. In these caves you will find more than 13 species of bat, the coqui frog and an arachnid called the “guava”. On Wednesday to Sunday guided tours are available for around US$10 per adult and US$7 per child.
