Puerto Rico has everything you need in a great honeymoon destination. The tropical atmosphere, delicious cuisine and stunning beaches are a great recipe for the perfect honeymoon. This island offers what you and your loved one needs to getaway while still having all the luxuries that come with a big city. Consider the following tips when you plan for the perfect honeymoon in Puerto Rico.
Choose the Best Timing
When planning your honeymoon at a tropical destination it is helpful to pick out the best time of year. Spring in Puerto Rico brings the perfect weather, the most sunny days out of the year and the least amount of tourists. While winter has the coolest weather with temperatures ranging from the 60s to the low 80s, it might also be the most cost effective time to travel to the island. Once you have chosen the perfect time to travel, planning the rest of your trip is a breeze because Puerto Rico is a territory of the US. This means most people on the island speak English and the U.S. dollar is the official currency, which is great because you don’t have to worry about exchange rates.
Stay at the Most Romantic Resort
A huge decision when planning your perfect honeymoon is deciding which resort can offer you the best and most romantic experience. The newly remodeled Caribe Hilton offers an apartment style, two-story honeymoon suite where you can feel at home with your newly-wed. The amenities are endless and include a welcoming balcony to wake up to the ocean view, full kitchen and huge spa bathtub. This historic resort sits on an island paradise in the beautiful city of San Juan.
Take Advantage of the Beautiful Beaches
Step right out to Caribe Hilton’s own private beach where you can relax all day in your cabana or enjoy one of the many pools. Puerto Rico will have you flaunting the best vacation tan in no time! The beaches are pristine with warm welcoming sand and cool blue waters, offering infinite romantic photo opportunities. One of the top beaches include Escambron where you can rest endlessly on the sand or venture in the ocean for one of the many water activities. Escambron is a bit more quaint than its neighboring beach, Condado. Condado Beach is known for being close to all the happenings in San Juan, where you can go straight from the beach to the bar and casino.
Enjoy a Romantic Dinner
Caribe Hilton offers a variety of romantic dining experiences for you and your partner. Caribar, also known as the birthplace of the Piña Colada has many delicious handcrafted cocktails and bites for your delight. Sip on the contemporary Clear Colada while you taste the Caribar Ceviche. Morton’s SteakHouse, which is also located at the Caribe Hilton, is a great place to enjoy a celebratory meal, giving you the best steak directly from Chicago with a delightful sea view.
Coming away from the resort is the forever romantic Oceano. This restaurant resides in an ocean side mansion where you can lounge and open a celebratory bottle of champagne or enjoy a few cocktails before your reservation. The menu offers a variety of caribbean inspired dishes, including fresh seafood which shines in the seafood couscous paella. Save room for desert and enjoy their signature oceano triple chocolate dream as the perfect end to your intimate dinner.
Participate in Fun Activities
Puerto Rico has something to offer for everyone, whether you are more laid back or adventurous. Enjoy the Zen Spa Oceano right at your resort for a day of relaxation. The doubles indulgence package allows you and your newly-wed to indulge in all the spa has to offer. If you want to get out and about and experience the depths of the island, a waterfall hike through El Yunque rainforest should be number one on your list. Here you can break a sweat by working your way through the forest. You can take La Mina trail, which leads you straight to La Mina Falls – a 35-foot cascade with a welcoming pool beneath it. This hike is a great way to snap unforgettable photos while learning about the historic national forest.
