Key Facts

The east, also known as Porta Antillas, is a diverse region that comprises several luxury resorts, beautiful beaches, world-class golf courses, and some of the island’s best boating, fishing, and sailing excursions. It is also the gateway to the beautiful island towns of Vieques and Culebra.

Championship golf is also a hallmark of this region, with spectacular courses designed y Greg Norman, Arthur Hills, Gary Player, and Rees Jones.

And then there’s El Yunque, which deserves a page all to itself.

Essential Vacation Spot

Luquillo Kiosks

For a unique gastronomic experience, travel east from El Yunque along Route 3, and you’ll soon reach a string of rustic kiosks serving a variety of local and international foods. From gourmet burgers to classic Puerto Rican fare to fried finger foods, these casual eateries each have their own identity and flavor, and many double as late-night hangouts. Small wonder, then, that kiosk-hopping is a favorite activity among locals and tourists alike.
