    As a US territory, Americans do not need a passport to travel to this Caribbean island. Discover this island that has plenty to offer in the way of mountains, rainforests, and – of course – beaches.For a small Caribbean island, Puerto Rico has an extensive array of unique attractions spread throughout its historic cities, dense rainforests, towering mountains, and white sandy beaches. Puerto Rico presents a strong mixture of Native Taíno, African, Hispanic, and American heritages in everything from its buildings to its people – a blend of over 500 years of the island’s rich history into a vibrant culture.

    Christopher Columbus landed on the island of Puerto Rico in 1492 and originally named it San Juan Bautista in honor of Saint John the Baptist. Ponce de Leon was the next visitor to the island, starting a four hundred year occupation by the Spanish. Puerto Rico became United States territory under the Treaty of Paris, which also ended the Spanish–American War. Today Puerto Rico exists officially as a commonwealth and a territory of the United States.

    Enjoy the charms of the island by tasting its many delicious traditional dishes, dancing salsa all night, stepping back into its colonial history, and relaxing on its pristine beaches.
