Places to Stay
Deciding where to stay during a vacation is nearly as important as choosing the destination itself.
In Puerto Rico, your choice could be a parador (small hotel) located in a nature reserve; a luxurious resort with exclusive service; a glamping eco-retreat nestled in a bird sanctuary; a vacation rental near the beach or in the mountains; or a historic hotel in Old San Juan surrounded by restaurants, local shops, and bars.
No matter your style of traveling, Puerto Rico hotels and accommodations offer options to fit your budget and your preferences.
The Puerto Rico Tourism Company (PRTC) has established a mandatory Health and Safety Program with measures that must be implemented by all tourism businesses to safeguard the health of visitors, patrons, and employees. Here is a list of the properties that have received the certification seal after successfully completing the inspection by the Puerto Rico Tourism health and safety ambassadors.
Keep in mind that you should make your reservations in advance, if you want to guarantee a spot at the property you like. Hotels can become fully booked months before the high season, which begins in mid-November and ends in mid-April.
The hotels in San Juan and the east coast are the most popular among off-island visitors to Puerto Rico. Meanwhile, the south and west regions of the island are more often frequented by locals, and tend to be busier during summer months, which is the high season for Puerto Ricans traveling around the island.
