I went there once and hated it.  I found it quite dirty and unromantic 🙁  Sorry. but I found it one of the worst places in the world I’ve travelled to. 

I would recommend the Dominican Republic!

Lindsaygooding: I wouldn’t consider it an ideal honeymoon destination =(

@Pia2010:  I agree that PR is nothing special.  But, in terms of safety, I would choose PR over DR, any day of the week. In terms of scenery, I would choose DR over PR.

We did! We spent the first half on the Vieques, which is a really quiet island off of PR with lots of fantastic beaches. There’s not much to do there besides go to the beach and swim in the biobay (which is super amazing and this is one of the few places on earth do to it.. google “biobay”), but we really enjoyed that after all the stress of the wedding. We stayed at Hector’s by the sea. They only have three rooms, but check out the trip adviser reviews.. it’s fantastic, private, and super romantic!

We spent the other half in San Juan, and that was not as romantic but more fun. We stayed at the coral princess and walked around el morro, old san juan, and surrounding areas. I enjoyed the stay, but that is not as honeymoon-ey as Vieques. Other things to do (we didn’t have time) in Puerto Rico are: visit Arecibo (giant telescope seen in Contact, Goldeneye), check out the camuy caves, hike in el yunque rain forest, tour the bicardi factory.  

I hope this helps! 🙂

I think PR can be a really fun place. Relatively close, shopping and parties in San Juan…  El Yunque is a beautiful rainforest, waterfalls…
