Aside from its 430 kilometers of golden sand coasts, Puerto Rico hides a colonial treasure of untold wealth. In the capital city of San Juan, signs of its sixteenth-century origins remain as well as colossal fortresses, earning it a UNESCO World Heritage Site designation. Nestled in the Caribbean Sea, this island is a water-sports paradise, renowned for diving, sailing, and deep-sea fishing. It is also home to one of the rarest bioluminescent bays on the planet, not to mention a massive rainforest and spectacular caves. Even if it is an American territory, Puerto Rico has a thriving artistic, musical, and culinary scene, and its culture and traditions are unique, rich, and colorful.
