Puerto Rico lies between the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean. Ciudad Trujillo is about 45 miles to the west, and st. Thomas, Virgin Islands, is 75 miles to the east of San Juan.
You really are ‘at home abroad’ in Puerto Rico, for its part of the United States, yet truly foreign in atmosphere. It has been called the most European of the Caribbean countries and with justice. The beaches are wonderful, the hotels among the most luxurious, the food familiar or exotic depending on your taste. Yet you have a wonderful feeling of being at home in Puerto Rico despite the fact that chaperones are still the fashion and that coffee and banana trees flourish before your eyes. Fishermen will be particularly happy there. The sun shines year round.
