Puerta Rico Map and Information

Puerto Rico is an island in the caribbean, east of the Dominican Republic. Whether you're dreaming about spectacular surfing waves, a challenging golf course, or the perfect sunbathing beach, Puerto Rico offers the active traveler a tremendous array of opportunities. Surfing and golf compete with tennis, fishing, kayaking, SCUBA diving, and horseback riding, not to mention windsurfing and parasailing.

The perfect swells here are created from storms, cold fronts, and low pressure systems. The main surfing season starts in October and ends in mid-April. At other times of the year the swells are dependent on hurricanes which usually appear in the Atlantic & Carribean area from June to November.

Health Tips

Sunburn and mosquitoes are the worst threat to your health so carry sunscreen lotion and mosquito repellent.

The threat of contracting Hepatitis A is low but it’s better to be careful and it’s recommended to take the necessary shot before leaving home.

Fresh water lakes and streams are often polluted so avoid going in for a dip. It’s safe to drink tap water, though if you’re venturing into the rural areas, carry bottled water.

Medical facilities are easily available especially in and around San Juan. There are a number of government as well as private hospitals. However, health services are fairly expensive.
