Puerto Rico, the'rich port' in English, is a premium sailing destination in the Caribbean, ideal for a weekend break. With a yacht charter in Puerto Rico you can explore the famous Cabezas de San Juan Nature Reserve on the east of the island, part of which is the Laguna Grande, a lagoon of outstanding natural beauty, and a picturesque Hispanic lighthouse that you can spot from the sea. As an exotic island, Puerto Rico has many gifts to offer to the adventurous traveller, such as the crystal clear waters of the Seven Seas Beach. If you are into water sports and you rent a boat in Puerto Rico, you many meet manatees, dolphins, fish of all sizes and colours and even sea turtles.
Holidaymakers who rent a boat in Puerto Rico can dock in the Puerto Del Rey marina, one of the biggest marinas in the Caribbean, located in a natural bay where your boat will be safe from tropical storms and hurricanes. In the island's capital, San Juan, you can anchor in the Club Náutico de San Juan, a traditional marina with a splendid view to Old San Juan. Located on the Isleta de San Juan, this is the oldest Hispanic settlement on the island and a masterpiece of colonial architecture, famous for its picturesque coloured houses. If you charter a yacht in Puerto Rico you can admire from the sea the gracious old Spanish forts of San Juan, such as the Castillo San Felipe del Morro and its promontory whose cannons protected the island from invaders from the sea, or Castle of San Cristóbal, the largest fort built in America by the Spaniards. Hikers will particularly enjoy a visit to the El Yunque National Forest, the only tropical rain forest in a United States territory that is famous for its Dwarf forest ecosystem.
With a yacht charter in Puerto Rico you can also visit nearby Vieques, part of the Spanish Virgin Islands and home to Bioluminescent Bay (or Mosquito Bay) where the waters take an unusual green colour due to the local fauna. It's worth visiting the Vieques National Wildlife Refuge where you might come across wild horses, an unusual sight on this part of the world, and the Fuerte de Vieques Spanish fort. Those who rent a boat in Puerto Rico might also have the chance to explore the tiny island of Culebra, famous for its Flamenco and Tamarindo beaches, both ideal for a swim in their turquoise waters.
