Puerto Rico, which directly translates to ‘Rich Port’, is a popular tourist destination and archipelago that lies between the North Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. Puerto Rico fell under United States territory as of March 2, 1917, when the Jones–Shafroth Act was signed into law.
The islands are a rich combination of vibrant cultures, heritage, and history derived from a mixture of Africans, Spaniards, and the indigenous inhabitants, the Tainos. This unseemly integration inspired the island’s unique art, architecture, spirited music, and powerful literature.
Puerto Rico has recently recovered from the devastating Hurricane Maria that rocked the islands on the 16th of September, 2017. Recently, the Puerto Rican tourism industry has, on various platforms, expressed its commitment to the continued sharing of Puerto Rican beauty with the outside world.
To make your stay on the island, even more, accommodating and fulfilling, we have taken it upon ourselves to compile a list of some of the most viable Airbnb listings in Puerto Rico, with a particular focus on the capital city, San Juan. Have a fabulous Caribbean stay.
