Visit the Offshore Islands of Puerto Rico
Just when you think you’ve explored it all, there are the offshore islands. Perhaps you didn’t know it (it’s still sort of a secret among travelers), Puerto Rico possesses offshore islands that will transport you to a different era when there are no highrise buildings or crowded scenes. You’ll find untamed natural beauty, peace, serenity and breathtaking locations you’ll have all to yourself.
Head to the west coast and visit the uninhabited island of Isla de Mona also known as “The Galapagos of the Caribbean” for excellent snorkeling, scuba diving and cave exploration. Off the town of Rincon you can schedule a tour to Isla Desecheo, you can’t set foot on this island but you can scuba dive the walls. The Parguera Natural Reserve and Gilligan’s Island make wonderful day trips for families and perfect for couples celebrating a honeymoon wishing for a little romance and uncrowded places.
For a great day trip go to the town of Ponce, make a ferry reservation to visit Caja de Muertos for the day, a snorkeler’s destination with gorgeous beaches, hiking trails and a working lighthouse.
