Everyone would be familiar with tunes of this song but little would you know that its based on this amazing place-Puerto Rico! Yes ladies and gentlemen pack your bags and get ready to have the time of your lives. 

Puerto Rico must be on your top 10 list of places to travel before you die. Puerto Rico may be synonymous with rest, relaxation, and sunburns accidentally received during too much rest and relaxation (up your SPF, bro), but international adrenaline junkies will tell you there are more amped-up activities to be found both on and beyond the beach- its a win win for all!

Puerto Rico is a Caribbean island and unincorporated U.S. territory with a landscape of mountains, waterfalls and the El Yunque tropical rainforest-yes it has it all! In San Juan, the capital and largest city, the Isla Verde area is known for its hotel strip, beach bars and casinos. History buffs also won’t want to miss San Juan National Historic Site and San Juan Bay, both full of monuments. San Juan also serves as a convenient gateway to El Yunque National Forest, a bio-diverse expanse of tropical rainforest boasting La Coca Falls, the reef-protected Luquillo Beach, and the Bacardi rum distillery. 


The bioluminescent bay in Vieques—an island off of the mainland— offers one of the brightest displays of bioluminescence in the world: Opt for a kayaking tour for an up-close display. For exceptional snorkeling, take a boat tour of Culebra, another island off the coast, with stops at Flamenco Beach; or try the Cayo Luis Pena Nature Reserve from Fajardo. Or go ziplining, horseback riding, or hiking through the lush jungle surrounding San Juan!


So if you are planning a breather this winters you must visit this heaven on earth and discover why this is called the island of enchantment!
