The island of Puerto Rico, officially the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico is almost rectangular, but also it is the smallest of the Greater Antilles islands, stretching the length of about 580 kilometers. The sea around Puerto Rico is deep, but full of history. No one knows just how sunken ships lying at the bottom of the flow Mona or Puerto Rico trench where the pirate ships cruise a few centuries ago and disappeared forever from the memory of the people. Population of Puerto Rico is a mix of different races and nations. Each people who came to Puerto Rico had worn its cuisine, music and traditions, so today that culture is almost impossible to describe by words, you just have to see and feel. The capital is San Juan, which was founded in the 16th century.

It is center of economic and political life. Surrounded at three sides by the sea San Juan provides an opportunity without transportation to go to a hotel or restaurant. Tourist season covers the period from December to April, but it is mainly because of American tourists who are trying to avoid winter temperatures. If you want to avoid the crowds of American tourists, it is recommended to visit the island in summer, from May to November, but be careful – it’s hurricane season.
