Some of the Top 10 Tourist Attractions of Puerto Rico

It may be a small island, but it certainly has a lot to offer for tourists and visitors to Puerto Rico. Trying to pinpoint the Top 5 attractions is no easy matter! We can say, however, that the quality accommodations are extremely important to tourists and the very best are attractions in their own right. Among the very best resort accommodations in Puerto Rico are the Palmas Del Mar Beach Resort and Paradisus Puerto Rico. Palmas Del Mar is located in Humacao just a short drive from San Juan. It features luxuriously appointed rental villas for tourists. Visitors to Paradisius, located in the Coco Beach area of Rio Grande, enjoy an on site casino, 2 golf courses and a lagoon-style swimming pool.

Definite "must sees" in Puerto Rico are the four UNESCO World Heritage Sites on the island. The San Juan National Historic Site and Fort San Felipe del Morro include most of the surviving fortifications from the early Spanish colonial era. La Fortaleza was first built in 1533 and has been the residence of 170 governors. The Porta Coeli ("Gateway to Heaven") cathedral is located in San German and was originally built in 1606. Restored and now serving as a museum, Porta Coeli is one of the western hemisphere's oldest churches.

The Luis Munoz Rivera Park in San Juan is a welcome attraction for tourists tuckered out by climbing old fortifications, spiraling lighthouse steps and even San Juan's expansive shopping malls. The park spreads over 27 acres at the entrance to Old San Juan and dates back to 1928. A thorough reconstruction in 1990 brought the park back to its original lush state, and visitors can enjoy the fragrant breezes and lovely views of the city from the comfort of a shaded park bench. All in all, Puerto Rico has so much to offer its visitors that tourists quickly lose count of all the wonders they see!
