Location

Location plays a main role in the decision making process for many vacationers. Be aware that many on-line travel web sites will list a hotel as being located in a large city, when in fact it is located in a smaller town a short distance away. If this is a concern for you, contact the hotel personally to find out where they are located.

San Juan

San Juan is the most populous location in Puerto Rico. You can find everything you need here, from historic buildings to the business sector, plenty of shopping, restaurants, and of course, all the accommodations you can dream of.

Ponce

On the opposite side of the island is another city, though smaller than San Juan, and that is Ponce. Most of the hotels in this area are located away from the area's beaches, so guests who dream of views of the ocean may choose another location.

Areas in Between

Throughout the rest of Puerto Rico, you will find many more areas that are less congested, making for peaceful accommodations, and great home bases to return to after exploring the island.
