It’s just about that time of year that you start getting cabin fever. Whether the kids are getting out for fall break or you just need a break, either way you know you need to travel, and soon. But you want to travel somewhere warm and close without all the usual travel issues of passports and customs. The answer to all your problems is sunny Puerto Rico travel.
No Passport, No Problem
Not everyone realizes that Puerto Rico is a Caribbean island and an unincorporated United States territory. This lends itself to easier travels for United States citizens, as it does not require a passport to travel there. The U.S. Virgin Islands in the Caribbean is the only other spot which United States citizens can travel without a passport. Puerto Rico is neither labeled a U.S. state nor a sovereign nation, it’s more a territory with its own benefits.
Visit San Juan
San Juan, being the capital city of Puerto Rico, is also the largest of all the cities in Puerto Rico.
The population of Puerto Rico as a whole is 3.195 million people and San Juan’s city accounts for approximately 347 thousand. San Juan can be divided into two separate mini cities, if you may. The Old San Juan, or El Viejo San Juan, is an old colonial style setting while the New San Juan is rich in new money for a major metropolis city feel. Both are worth visiting and both offer magnificent sightseeing and tourist attractions.

There are direct flights from many cities in the United States, most only taking an easy three hours or less of in-the-air flight time. At the current date, there are five airlines that fly into Puerto Rico: JetBlue, American, Southwest, Delta and United Airlines.
