The Most Popular Destination This Summer May Surprise You
New research shows that Americans are searching for flights to one sunny destination in droves this summer say the experts at TravelPulse: Puerto Rico. Using data from the flight-comparison site Jetcost, TravelPulse found that the sunny island to our south and its San Juan Luis Munoz Marin International Airport (SJU) was at the top of traveler’s search lists. With a remarkable recovery effort from the devastation of Hurricane Maria in the fall of 2017, the island is ready to welcome visitors this summer. What makes Puerto Rico so special?
The west of the Island has a unique “surfer town” flare that many locals opt for when seeking a staycation and surf aficionados head to in droves to catch waves, especially in Rincon. Base yourself near the ultimate surfer bar, Tamboo, voted the best beach bar in the entire Caribbean by USA Today. Relax right on the sand where you can either watch the experts hang ten or get ready to catch the perfect curl.
According to Discover Puerto Rico, the island has a cornucopia of unique courses ranging from luxury properties on the north coast near historic San Juan, to an array of courses out west, down south, or on the east coast. Some highlights include TPC Dorado Beach East, where Jack Nicklaus proclaimed the 4th hole to be one of the top ten in the world and the celebrity-designed courses at Wyndham Grand Rio Mar Peurto Recio Golf & Beach Resort with pedigrees ranging from Greg Norman (River Course) to George and Tom Fazio (Ocean Course).
