Accommodations Map

While you may be looking for variety, others may just be searching for something specific which is just right for them. Travelers with a good idea of what they want already may find that our Best Hotels pages offer just the information they seek. Star Ratings represent yet another option for those who want to narrow down their search. On the other hand, vacationers eager to learn about the whole range of Puerto Rican hotels may want to flip through the Alphabetical List of Hotels and read through the details of those that seem most interesting.


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.


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.
