Cheap Flights to Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico is endowed with miles and miles of wonderful, sparkling white-sand beaches, warm, sunny weather year-round and fun activities in and around the water. There's a lot more to this beautiful island than just the sun, surf and sand, however. Puerto Rico is home to an astonishing range of ecosystems and landscapes, as well. From the mysterious depths of the El Yunque rainforests to desert islands covered with strange reef formations, and from entire mountainsides covered with karstic rock to entire bays where the water comes alive with bioluminescence at night, Puerto Rico is far from generic.

The essentials -- when to come to Puerto Rico and how

From budget to high-end, Puerto Rico has plenty to offer every kind of traveler. Budget travelers will find it easy to make their way around with no more than C$150 a day using simple hotels, public transportation, and entry-level restaurants.

Since Puerto Rico is a US territory, Canadians need no visa to enter the region.

With most tourist destinations, the low season would involve weather that was too hot or too cold. In Puerto Rico, however, the season that lasts from June to November involves the local hurricane season. Nevertheless, many resorts offer discounts, and you might want to check them out. The high season begins in December, and lasts all the way to April. Plenty of crowds come here to flee winter.

Planning ahead and using a tool like Skyscanner to check out the cheapest flight and hotel prices can ensure that you can get the greatest value for your money.

While Puerto Rico has a great bus service, it can be fun having your own rental car, although road conditions do tend to be poor. Skyscanner has a very effective rental car search tool that you can use.

Seeing the best of Puerto Rico

Understandably, Puerto Rico's beaches are its biggest draw. The Vieques and Culebra regions, US Navy installations until recently, are now open to the public, and surprisingly, they have some of the best beaches. Apparently, when the tourist industry was kept out of this region, the lack of developer interference preserved it.

As great as Puerto Rico's beaches are, its mountains are just as wonderful. Sleepy little towns devoted to coffee plantations, mountain ranches that raise some of the finest Paso Fino horses, lush, inaccessible jungles with pretty waterfalls, and cute little lakes filled with fish and crabs, all make a trip to Puerto Rico feel like travel back in time to a different age.

Travel to Puerto Rico is easy and inexpensive, it can be a quick weekend trip.
