Celebrate Your Love in One of the Most Romantic Cities in the World
San Juan is one of the most preferred wedding destinations on the Caribbean. When the special day is over, couples choose to honeymoon in Puerto Rico in order to explore romantic and inspiring places around the island…a perfect way to begin a life together. San Juan is a great place to be in Puerto Rico due to its location on the island giving you easy access to explore beyond the city. San Juan defines the essence of romance and perfect compromise. San Juan is two destinations in one that perfectly blend into one happy place, just like marriage. Part of the challenge of planning a honeymoon is satisfying the travel needs of both the bride and groom. Some couples are lucky to have the same taste when it comes to travel. If you don’t, San Juan can still meet the travel needs of both. Perhaps the bride may want a more intimate destination with European charm, whereas the groom may wish for a more modern, lively vibe. San Juan offers the best of both worlds.
Old San Juan has a charming, romantic atmosphere with romantic plazas, parks, and attractions. Condado and Isla Verde offer the best of the modern world for travelers, with luxurious hotels, from elegant to modern chic, and with casinos, water sports, nightclubs, and more. Whether you prefer to spend lazy days on the beach or have fun on the water, San Juan is sure to satisfy.
