Our Puerto Rico favorites:
Puerto Rico is an amazing island to explore. The culture is a sensational mix of Caribbean culture, with four centuries of Spanish culture and a strong contemporary American influence. The mountainous interior, which is carpeted in tropical rainforests and the beautiful golden sands of the beaches mean that tourist flock to apartments to rent in Puerto Rico.
The scuba diving holidays in Puerto Rico are absolutely sensational. The wonderful coral reefs that surround the islands attract divers from around the world to Puerto Rico apartments for rent, as there are an incredible range of marine species living in such a tiny area. The colours you will see on a scuba diving holiday in Puerto Rico are brilliant, and if you have no experience, lesson and qualifications can be earned during your stay in Puerto Rico accommodation.

There is a great range of excellent nightlife in Puerto Rico, with all types of music heard drifting in the balmy evening air, from American big band and swing to Latino.
The secluded beach town of Rincon is a magnificent place to take Puerto Rico accommodation. The more relaxed atmosphere in Rincon means it is an idyllic place to enjoy the sea, sun and sand of Puerto Rico, surf large waves, snorkel in the sheltered bays to the south and even watch whales from the shore. Puerto Rico accommodation in Rincon is also an excellent spot from which to start many of the nature trails that lead into the hills.
The peak season for tourism in Puerto Rico is between December and April, when apartments for rent in Puerto Rico come into very high demand.

Hurricane season falls between late May and early November.
