A great way to save money on your trip is to purchase
one of the many Puerto Rico vacation packages available.
As with most travel packages, the most common combination
is that of hotel and airfare, since you will often get
reasonable discounts. Puerto Rico vacation packages come
in all shape and sizes, though, so you have a lot of freedom
to plan out your itinerary. If you have any inclination
whatsoever to explore the more secluded of Puerto
Rico's popular beaches, one thing that is essential
to Puerto Rico holiday packages is a car
rental. While public transportation is a cheap and
easy alternative for exploring the main tourist areas
of San Juan and other outlying areas - depending
solely on buses means you will miss out on a lot of Puerto
Rico's finest sights.
Puerto Rico all inclusive vacation packages are a little less popular, but by no means unusual. The island only has one proper all inclusive resort, the Paradisus, located where the outlying San Juan suburbs and beach communities melt into the less crowded beaches of the northeastern shores. Puerto Rico all inclusive vacation packages will undoubtedly bring you to the Paradisus, and it would be hard to believe anyone would be let down by this charming resort. If it's possible to be tired of Puerto Rican beaches, the pool here is unrivaled.
You can get Puerto Rico holiday packages to any section of the island you choose, so the trickiest part will be deciding which of the great cities here you will select as your temporary home. San Juan has by far the most options, and many of the best options include a stay within the aging walls of the Old Town. Immerse yourself in Puerto Rico's rich heritage as you explore the capital city, its museums, architectural highlights, nightlife and laid-back cafes and lounges. Rincon is another place that features numerous Puerto Rico vacation packages, as the city is quite popular with surfers, swimmers and anyone who likes a little activity on their trip to the Caribbean.
If you are heading to Vieques or Culebra Island, it's
nice to include the necessary transportation from the
main island. Whether by plane or ferry, having these short
trips all mapped out ahead of time will save a lot of
time once you get to Puerto Rico.
If you are lucky enough to be traveling during one of
the island's many festivals, Puerto Rico holiday
packages should include at least a short stay at Ponce,
which tends to take these festivals a little more seriously than anywhere else. Carnivale
is especially huge here, so make sure you get any Puerto
Rico vacation packages during this pre-Lent holiday well
