There is more than enough sand and ocean for everyone in Puerto Rico, with the country boasting 270 miles of beaches.
Puerto Rico is home to the world’s largest telescope called the Arecibo Observatory. It is used to look at asteroids in space, and determine if any ever get too close to the Earth’s surface.
Spanglish is commonly heard throughout Puerto Rico, due to the influence of the English language.
Puerto Rico is home to the Pina Colada and rum is the libation of choice for locals. With major distilleries such as Bacardi residing on the island, 70% of the rum sold in the U.S. comes from Puerto Rico.
Daytime temperatures in Puerto Rico stay in a relatively tight (and warm) range, with highs hitting the upper 70s to upper 80s (Fahrenheit). The winter months are considered peak season for visitors, with temps usually in the 80-degree range. Spring is pleasant, summer tends to be a little hotter and rainier, and the fall months from October to mid-December are ideal. Low temperatures on the island don’t usually drop below 70 degrees (Fahrenheit), meaning that packing for a winter trip to Puerto Rico does not require much more than a light jacket or sweater.
