Any Places Tourists Should Avoid When Visiting Puerto Rico?

Ready to go to Puerto Rico but heard traveling in the Caribbean isn't safe?
Puerto Rico is very safe, obviously use commonsense no matter where you travel and keep your valuables out of site and use hotel safes for anything you can't replace if you're worried about the honesty of the hotel or resort workers. Lock your doors when you're in your room and obviously when you leave.

We've traveled back and forth from the U.S. to P.R. numerous times over the years and have only found one area in San Juan that you should avoid. La Perla, a pretty name for a not-so-pretty, crime ridden area. San Juan has the same problems as any other urban metropolis and as long as you follow the same tourism tips you would follow anywhere else, you can easily avoid becoming a statistic. Puerto Rico has public housing areas called "caserios" and generally they are economically downtrodden areas off the tourist path. Avoid those areas and you should have a safe and fabulous vacation.

Overall, Puerto Rico is a very safe destination for tourists and you can't go wrong with a visit to the west side of the island where San German and Rincon are located - it's well worth the trip.

You can't go without a passport and you'll need a certified copy of your birth certificate to get that, call our offices today at 855-715-1062 or visit our order form to get started right now.

Yeah There's a Gilligan's Island in Puerto Rico

One destination that is gaining popularity with destination weddings and honeymooners alike is Gilligan's Island.

It really has nothing to do with the television show, however it is very private. Imagine a tropical paradise with white sand beaches, mazes of mangroves, crystal clear waters and just a handful or so of other residents on "your" island.

This is an ideal place to plan a private, no stress family vacation, a romantic getaway for just the two of you or even a destination wedding following by a private honeymoon in a place where both bride and groom as well as their guests can enjoy the private paradise.

The shallow waters around Gilligan's Island hold fantastic opportunities for snorkeling because the waters are so visually clear and they are teaming with marine life. Be sure to take your underwater camera on this retreat!

Gilligan's Island is formerly known as Guánica and is between Mayagüez and Ponce in the southwest. For more information, please call: (787) 821-4941.

If you're ready to book your trip, make sure you have a current passport that meets the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative compliance regulations or you can find yourself denied re-entry into the United States.
