About Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico is a 110 by 35 mile island with beautiful beaches, great diving, and many other activities, both natural and man made. Coupled with first-class hotels, easy access from the US, affordable dive accommodation packages, and a choice of rural or urban settings, it is gaining popularity as an all-around vacation spot for divers visiting the Caribbean. Puerto Rico is located att the eastern end of the Greater Antilles chain, and has the Atlantic Ocean to the north and the Caribbean to the south. Vieques and Culebra islands lie to the east, and Mona Island is to the west. There are 3.5 million residents of Puerto Rico, with about one million in the San Juan metropolitan area.

Puerto Rico offers many Scuba Diving and snorkel Adventures for both experienced and novice divers. From reefs to walls, underwater caves and wrecks, warm water and great visibility will greet you as you descend into deep blue. The small islands shown on the map below offer a special treat to divers, including Mona, which is known as the "Galapagos of the Caribbean"

Getting There

Getting to Puerto Rico almost always means flying to Luis Muñoz Marín (LMM) International Airport. The gleaming white terminal located just outside of San Juan is ranked 34th among passenger airports in the United States.

Most U.S. and many international airlines offer direct flights to Puerto Rico, and making connecting flights is easy. LMM is one of the largest airports in the Caribbean and is a popular place for hopping over to the U.S. Virgin Islands and other Caribbean destinations.

Transferring from the airport to your hotel usually requires taking a taxi, although some hotels provide complimentary transportation to their properties in special buses. Puerto Rico Tourism Company representatives at the airport will assist you in finding the right transportation. Major car rental agencies are located at the airport, and others offer free transportation to their off-airport sites.

Although there is no regular passenger service to Puerto Rico by sea, more than a million passengers visit the island on cruise ships every year, whether on one of the many cruise lines whose homeport is San Juan, or on one of the visiting lines.

Entry Requirements

When traveling from the United States to Puerto Rico, U.S. citizens are not required to carry their passport although some form of government issued picture identification card is needed.

If you are a citizen from a country other than the United States, a visa is required to enter the island. These requirements are standard and are the same as for entering the United States. A standard 90-day non-immigrant visa will be required if you are just visiting for vacation..

Getting Around

Ground transportation in Puerto Rico can mean a taxi, a tour bus, a rental car, a ferry, a small plane, a charter boat, a Metrobus, or a público. In the near future, you will also be able to get around part of greater San Juan in a shiny new Urban Train.

By Ground

Most of the major car rental companies have offices at the airport, in San Juan and in the larger cities and towns. Roads are clearly marked and maps are available. Note that speed limits are indicated in miles per hour, but distances are shown in kilometers.

Taxis are available at the airport, hotels and major tourist points. In the tourism zones, rates are fixed and posted. Outside the zones, taxis are metered and can be hired by the hour.

Public transportation in the metropolitan San Juan area is convenient and practical, with regular bus service on established routes.

By Air

You can fly to many of the cities and towns within Puerto Rico, including Vieques and Culebra, by chartering a small plane or taking one of the regularly scheduled commuter-type flights from the Ribas Dominicci Airport in Isla Grande, San Juan, or other local airports. If you are staying in the west of the island, look into direct flights to and from the Aguadilla airport.

By Water

Ferry service to Culebra and Vieques is available at the small port of Fajardo on the east end of the island. Private boats can also be chartered at many of the marinas on the east coast.

By Publico

Among the most interesting and adventurous ways of traveling in Puerto Rico is by público. Públicos are independently owned and operated vans that service hard to reach urban areas. They also travel between island towns; if you have the time and inclination, they can be an inexpensive and fascinating way to learn about the island. You may find yourself riding with a family on its way to see a grandmother on the other side of the island, or a half dozen ballplayers on their way to a game. All in all, públicos offer visitors a terrific opportunity to meet Puerto Rico and its people.

Dining & Nightlife

San Juan is the Caribbean capital of nightlife and entertainment, where you can indulge in bar hopping, enjoy fine dining, partake in Vegas-style gaming or anything in between.

Throughout the San Juan area, bars, discos and popular restaurants are found on nearly every corner of the city, but be sure not to miss the vibrant nightlife out on the island, including the special charms of resorts in Dorado, Rio Grande, Ponce and Mayagüez. Discover all of Puerto Rico's Top Entertainment Areas .

Activities

Whether you're dreaming about spectacular surfing waves, a challenging golf course, or the perfect sunbathing beach, Puerto Rico offers the active traveler a tremendous array of opportunities. Surfing and golf compete with tennis, fishing, kayaking, SCUBA diving, and horseback riding, not to mention windsurfing and parasailing, for your active time. Our perpetual summer weather begs you to enjoy the sport of your choice!

Beaches

Puerto Rico is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, and its hundreds of miles of coastline harbor an almost endless selection for the beach lover. Beaches come in every size, color, and form, from the pure white dunes of Isabela to the black volcanic sands near Punta Santiago. You can find a beach for any level of seaside activity, from a stroll in the shimmering shallow waters at Luquillo to a thrilling ride in the boisterous surf of Rincón.

Getting To Culebra

The easiest way to reach Culebra is via San Juan. San Juan International Airport is served from the U.S. Mainland by American Airlines, Delta, TWA, USAir, Carnival, Continental, Northwest, PanAm, and United. Culebra has daily flights arriving from the San Juan International Airport on Isla Nena Air Services (787-741-1577), and from San Juan Isla Grande Airport on Vieques Air Link (787-722-3736). A 1 1/2 hour ferry ride is also available from Fajardo, a sea port on the east shore of Puerto Rico, about 1 1/2 hour drive from San Juan.
