Puerto Rico is one of the most popular destinations in the Caribbean. Thanks to being US territory, Puerto Rico remains one of the few destinations in the Caribbean which can be visited without a passport.
With mild climate all year round and lovely beaches to soak up the sun, Puerto Rico attracts a lot holiday makers each year. Diving is great here as well and you can find some decent surfing. Don’t forget to try the local food.
Generally speaking, when we start planning our vacation, the money spent on the hotel weigh a lot in the total budget. If you are the active kind of traveler and only use the hotel to catch some sleep then a budget hotel is exactly what you need. If, however, you are traveling with the kids, it’s a good idea to look into booking a room in a family hotel, while if you want to surprise your significant other with a romantic getaway, it’s always a good idea to look for hotels specialized in pampering their guests and which offer romantic packages.
Here at WhyGo Caribbean, we tried to select some of the best resorts for each type of traveler.
For a romantic escape
Puerto Rico has always been one of the favorite places to spend a romantic vacation or a honeymoon. There are plenty of resorts catering for this type of traveler so it can be a bit tricky to find exactly what you want.
Hix Island House is a good choice if you plan to really relax and not stay in contact with the rest of the world. There aren’t any phones or TV’s within the resort. On the other hand, the atmosphere is very relaxing and the resort is adults only.

For the families
Planning to take the kids with you on a Caribbean vacation? Then Puerto Rico is a great choice. While it’s quite easy to plan a vacation for two adults, when children are involved, we need to think about their needs as well. Do you need a nanny? Does the hotel offer a game room? How about a pool for the kids?
El Conquistador Resort & Golden Door Spa is one of the best choices for families. It offers a large water park with plenty of rides for the kids.
If you’ve got toddlers, a good choice is The Rio Mar Beach Resort & Spa which offers a swimming area for them as well as other interesting activities.

If you prefer to golf, then El Conquistador Resort & Golden Door Spa is a good option. Try their golf course and then relax at the spa. Special packages are available.
For the budget traveler
The idea of budget resorts in Puerto Rico is a little different than what you might expect. While usually the cheapest hotels only offer the minimum of facilities and you can forget about finding a beach right at your door steps, things are different here.
Parador Villas del Mar Hau are located right on a sandy beach and offer a lot of places to have fun (tennis court, volleyball court). There’s a restaurant on site as well.
If you want to stay in the heart of San Juan, choose Comfort Inn . It doesn’t look stunning but the rooms are clean, you get free breakfast and there’s a swimming pool on site.
