With numerous mysterious caves, rainy parks, beautiful beaches, great mountains, swashbuckling history, and incredible climate, Puerto Rico has something for everyone. Here is your Puerto Rico travel guide.

Puerto Rico and Hurricanes

Puerto Rico has seen it all and weathered several storms. Just recently, Puerto Rico was anxiously preparing to face two of the worst hurricanes in the Island’s history, hurricane Irma and Maria. Hurricane Irma struck first, causing havoc and extensive damage on the Vieques and Culebra Islands. Hurricane Maria would strike after one week, causing more severe damage than hurricane Irma. It is the worst hurricane to have hit this grand Island in 89+ years.

Although hurricane Maria caused severe damage, Puerto Rico continued to persevere as it always does. La Isla Del Encanto has gone through so much, but it always comes out on top.
