A different Caribbean experience awaits you in Puerto Rico, where striking remnants of a rich and storied past coexist beside elegant new developments. After Laurance Rockefeller acquired Dorado Beach resort in the 1950s, it became a haven for JFK, Elizabeth Taylor and other celebrities, who treated Dorado as their private escape. And yet, just beyond its gates, the conquistador legacy is evident in the 16th-century fortress El Morro and colonial buildings with bright pastel facades. With championship golf, exciting kids' activities and perfect Caribbean beaches, Dorado Beach combines the island's rich history and celebrity past with world-class luxury.
The Camuy River Cave Park is home to a huge network of caves and underground waterways carved out by an underground river, The Río Camuy. Visitors can see a portion of the site, still largely unmapped, which is believed to have about 800 caves in all.
Ninety minutes from the resort, you'll find the only tropical rain forest in the U.S. National Forest System. Lush greenery, gurgling rivers and hidden waterfalls await you. Just don't forget sturdy hiking shoes and a bathing suit.
It's picnic "bask it" time on Parque Nacional Isla de Cabra in San Juan Bay, east of Dorado. Claiming quite the quirky history - including serving as a Spanish leper colony - it's now a perfect spot to lay down a tartan blanket.
Of the Reserve's three 18-hole courses, Pineapple Course is the friendliest. East Course boasts ocean panoramas and native sands. Built in 1972, Sugarcane Course is the most challenging.
Why visit Casa Bacardi? It's been the reason why you still buy Coke as a middle-aged person after all these years, so come pay your respects. A cheap taxi ride, about 15 minutes due west, will get you home safely.
Your kids will flip over The Watermill, a $12 million aquatic wonderland with two 30-foot water slides, a lazy river with a wave machine and multiple pools. Parents will appreciate the poolside refreshment service.
Travel an hour and a half to Laguna Grande in Fajardo to see bioluminescent dinoflagellates light up the mangrove-lined lagoons. Enjoy a two-hour kayak tour in the water as millions of glowing creatures light up around you.
The weather stays warm year-round in Dorado Beach, ranging from the low 70s to high 80s. You'll find that it's almost always a great time to don your new swimwear and lounge on a golden beach.
