Many dream of a luxurious summer vacation to the Caribbean complete with non-stop flight, a stay at a 5-star resort, and world-class activities.
Flights to San Juan, Puerto Rico are often 30 percent less than flights to other Caribbean destinations, and with a wealth of fine resorts and activities to choose from on the island, Puerto Rico is an excellent choice for affordable luxury travel.
Americans do not need a passport to travel to Puerto Rico, the U.S. dollar is accepted as currency, most everyone speaks English, and at nearly three times the size of Rhode Island, there’s plenty to explore.
Here is a fun-filled three day vacation we found through the Last Minute Travel Club, including non-stop flight, five-star resort, and daily activities for under $750:
FLIGHT – Start with a non-stop flight from Fort Lauderdale aboard jetBlue, and splurge for the Even More Space seats starting at only $10 each way, and still stay under the $750 total vacation cost.
RESORT – On a lush peninsula along the northeastern coast in Coco Beach lays the beautiful Gran Melia Puerto Rico Golf Resort, a 5-star luxurious oasis. Choose from 544 over-sized junior suites as well as suites with your choice of ocean view or majestic mountain views.
ACTIVITIES – On your first day, visit America’s only nationally managed rain forest – El Yunque National Rainforest Hiking Tour (includes hotel pick-up from Gran Melia). Discover a multitude of plant and animal life throughout the magnificent forest as you make your way to one of the stunning waterfalls for a refreshing swim.
Day two: Join a combination tour of the Bacardi Rum Distillery, the largest distillery in the world, and explore the grand old city of Old San Juan.
Day three: Be sure to indulge in a sailing and snorkeling cruise with a lunch buffet of the island’s specialty dishes. Enjoy the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean, or chill out on the catamaran and admire the diverse ecology of the area.
