Old San Juan Historic District
The Old San Juan Historic District is the first place you can't miss if you are in Puerto Rico. With different places to explore, you'll be amazed at the Island's rich history and culture.
Porta Coeli Church and Museum
Heralded as one of the oldest buildings in the Americas, the Porta Coeli Church stands as a witness of Spanish domination on the Island and the way the Church dominated all things in the early centuries of the New World.
El Yunque Rainforest
With over 3 million gallons of water each year, El Yunque is the only Tropical Forest in the United States National Parks Service. With countless trails, you'll be able to explore the heart of the Puerto Rican flora and fauna. Picnic and camping areas are also available.
Caguana and Tibes Indian Ceremonial Parks
Puerto Rico is an area rich in pre-Columbian history. The local Indians, called Taínos (ta-eeh-nos) have left us with a rich legacy of their culture, customs and beliefs. Caguana, located in the Central Mountain town of Utuado, is the most magical of them. Tibes, the biggest pre-Columbian archeological area in the Caribbean, lies in the southern city of Ponce.
Camuy River Caverns
We can't leave out of this list without by far the most beautiful sights you'll see on the Island. The Camuy River Caverns is a system of caves deep in the north side of Puerto Rico. Only three caves are open to the public from the huge cavernous complex, still the thrills will be long remembered. Don't miss this one up!
La Parguera Bioluminiscent Bay
Considered as one of the most complete and preserved bioluminescent bays in the World, the Parguera Bay is a sight not to be missed. Tiny microscopic organisms light the water for a show you cannot miss! The bay itself is a protected area, so the only way to reach it is by boat. You can take any of the boating services right on the Parguera area.
Arecibo Observatory (NAIC)
The National Astronomy and Ionosphere Center, commonly known as the Arecibo Telescope, is still currently the world's biggest radio telescope. With a span of 1,000 feet, you'll stare in awe at the sheer immensity of the facilities.
El Morro Castle and San Cristobal Fort
El Morro is a long-standing symbol of Puerto Rico's beauty and historical legacy. For over 400 years El Morro has stood as an impressive witness to Puerto Rico's Spanish legacy. The San Cristóbal Fort is a smaller castle located on the bigger San Juan defense system built to defend the Island from invaders.
