Where should you not stay in Puerto Rico?
Other spots to avoid at night are the neighborhoods of La Perla (next to Old City) and parts of Puerta de Tierra. Stick to the neighborhoods of Old San Juan, Isla Verde, Miramar and Condado at night, where there are regular police patrols. Should you have an emergency, call 911 as you would in the US.
Which part of Puerto Rico should I visit?
If you’re worried about safety in Puerto Rico then you might feel wary about San Juan, but you’ll be fine if you stick to the main tourist routes. We do advise caution and common sense – as with any major city. For travelers, we recommend sticking to Old San Juan, Isla Verde, and El Condado.
What is the safest place to stay in Puerto Rico?
Old San Juan is the safest place to stay in Puerto Rico due to being the capital city and heavily guarded by policemen. Isla Verde is also a good option if you are looking for somewhere safe with a good beach.
Does Puerto Rico have any all inclusive resorts?
But it is possible. There are three Puerto Rico resorts that do offer all-inclusive options (with both food and drinks covered), spread out across the island but all boasting name-brand recognition. And the all-inclusive package, which starts at less than $270 per person, is a great way to experience it all.
How many days do I need in Puerto Rico?
We recommend spending 4 to 5 days in Puerto Rico. While the island is quite small (about the size of Connecticut) there’s lots to see, do and eat!
Which is better Condado or Isla Verde?
Isla Verde is an absolutely pristine beach, more so than the beach in Condado. All of the hotels in this area have fine dining options and although there are some restaurants and convenience stores on the Main Street, the local area is not as densely walkable as Condado.
Is it better to stay in Old San Juan or Condado?
For Puerto Rico, I always recommend a few nights in Old San Juan and then a few nights on the beach. The area of Condado is a great and close option to the airport where there is a stunning beach and you’re close to other water activities. You could also consider staying in the Isla Verde area.
Is Puerto Rico expensive?
That being said, Puerto Rico is still more expensive than the majority of countries around the world and is one of the most expensive areas in Latin America, so don’t expect things to be as cheap as they would be in Thailand or Vietnam.
