Five Romantic Things To Do in Puerto Rico…

Traveler's Joy have listed the top 5 romantic activities in Puerto Rico that honeymoon couples simply shouldn't miss out on.

Swim in Waterfalls 

One of Puerto Rico's greatest gems is El Yunque National Rainforest located in the northeastern mountains of the island. It is here where you'll hike the trails of the rainforest, marvel at its beauty and surrounding flora, and swim in its waterfalls. Couples should hike Mt. Britton to the tower, but do not miss La Mina Trail, for it leads to the ever-popular La Mina Falls, where you can swim in the dipping pool and marvel at the waterfall.

Romantic Sunsets in the West 

Located on the western end of the island, the sleepy surfing town of Rincon is one of Puerto Rico's most visited and celebrated spots. About 90 miles from San Juan, Rincon has its beautiful sunsets, private beaches, and quaint hotels. Because it's a few hours from San Juan, Rincon is secluded, less touristy and romantic.

Visit Old San Juan

Visit El Morro, the Spanish fortress that once protected the city from invaders. Do a little shopping and spend the day walking its narrow streets filled with shades of blues, greens and yellows. With colorful buildings, enough restaurants to satiate your every taste and quaint parks all around, there are plenty of reasons why this gem of a city is a favorite place for romance.

Take a Ferry to Culebra 

If you've ever dreamed of walking on long stretches of white sand and looking out at crystal clear blue water, Culebra is the place. Having been voted as one of the top ten beaches in the world for many years, Flamenco Beach should be your first stop. Make it a side-trip on your Puerto Rican vacation and consider staying a minimum of two days in this little piece of heaven. Couples can choose to relax and be lazy or try some great snorkeling after a brief hike to Carlos Rosario Beach. Also on the to-do list, venture south to Zoni Beach for another stretch of paradise that can't be missed.

Learn How To Salsa 
Arguably one of the sexiest dances known to man, Salsa is one of Puerto Rico's national dances and continues to engulf couples in its moves. Couples who love to dance or want to do something memorable on their honeymoon should take a salsa dance class at the Nuyorican Café, located in Old San Juan.
