Known as the “Island of Enchantment,” Puerto Rico will help you easily forget the piles of homework you left at school. Spring breakers can take in a mix of island urbanism coupled with breathtaking beaches.
Puerto Rico's caves. The Parque de las Cavernas del Rio Camuy
contain one of the world's largest cave networks. You'll find blue-eyed river crabs, long-legged tarantulas and bats make a visit to the caves each day too.
For a light lunch or afternoon snack, try empanadillas. They are typically deep fried, as is most food in PR, and filled with cheese, meats or seafood. For something a little heavier, get your hands on some lechon asado (barbecue pork) and arroz con gandules (yellow rice with pigeon pea).
Old San Juan. If you need a break from the beach for a day, transport yourself back in time to the old city of San Juan. The 16th- and 17th-century architecture is just as jaw-dropping as the crystal clear waters.
