Things to do in Puerto Rico

La Dulce Vida Mountain Bike Tours in Vieques

This sweet mountain-bike tour takes visitors on the muddy trails, beaches and back roads of Puerto Rico's former U.S. Navy territory. Bat colonies now dwell in huge bunkers that were once ammo storehouses. Part of the trail winds through the Vieques National Wildlife Refuge, where cyclists can break for a dip in the Caribbean Sea.

Beaches

Put on your shades and grab the cocoa butter. The locals prefer Luquillo Beach, near El Yunque, for its calm waters, eateries and palm-studded shoreline. Surfers dig Crashboat, an expert "hang-ten" spot on the island's northwestern tip. The serene Flamenco Beach in Culebra offers great snorkeling up the long horseshoe coastline.

El Yunque Rain Forest

Get up-close-and-personal with nature at El Yunque Rain Forest. Located about an hour east of San Juan, this eco-tourism haven offers lush rewards. Enjoy a picnic beside a cool river pool as the calls of exotic birds echo through the forest. Walk trails suited to your skill level that lead to waterfalls, dramatic rock formations or sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea. Hard-core hikers: Put some muscle into El Yunque Peak Trail, a strenuous hike to the 3,496-foot summit.

Rio Camuy Cave Park

Only have time for one day trip outside San Juan? Then the Rio Camuy Cave Park should be it. Descend to subterranean paradise aglitter with stalactites, stalagmites and one of the largest underground rivers in the world. A tour guide leads you through the Cueva Clara, Tres Pueblos sinkhole and tiny openings to the center of the earth. Advanced cavers can arrange rappelling trips to Cathedral Cave, home of mysterious petroglyphs etched by the ancient Tainos.

Arecibo Ionospheric Observatory

Bring your stargazers to check out one of the world's largest radar-radio telescopes. Hands-on exhibits explain astronomy, atmospheric science and the reason this mysterious telescope, large enough to fit 12 football fields, sits in an enormous sinkhole in Puerto Rico. And James Bond fans, you may experience deja vu -- this observatory starred in Goldeneye.

La Ruta Panoramica

Cruise the island from east to west on this stunning 120-mile network of highways. Hugging the Cordillera Central, you'll see dense forests (Mointe del Estado, Toro Negro, Carite), Salto de Dona Juana Waterfall, incredible overlooks (Villalba, Piedra Degetau) and more.

Mosquito Bay in Vieques

Ever hear of bioluminescence? Some say Mosquito Bay offers the best on the planet. Disturb the locals -- millions of teeny water organisms -- and they'll glow, creating a blue light in the water. For an extra-magical encounter, jump in the bay and make "water angels" with your arms and legs. Kayak and boat tours depart at night.

Insider tips for Puerto Rico travel

Festivals

Check out the world's best Salsa dancers during July's Salsa Congress or the lively Puerto Rico Jazzfest in June. The annual gastronomy event Saborea Puerto Rico draws quite a scene, including Food Network stars Anne Burrell, Robert Irvine and Marc Forgione.

Ruta del Lechon (Guavate)

If you take on the La Ruta Panoramica, break for a meal along this tasty stretch of road in Guavate. Be sure to try lechon (a Puerto Rican staple), arroz con gandules (rice and peas) and a crispy piece of cuerito (marinated pigskin).

La Placita Market (Santurce)

Mingle with the locals at this favorite hang-out. Enjoy excellent mojitos, natural juice drinks and fritters stuffed with meat or seafood.
