Culture in the Caribbean

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.

Fresh Things To Do

Featured Activity

  • Day Trip: Old San Juan

    San Juan's history dates back to 1521, when Ponce de Leon founded it. The city is known as "La Ciudad Amurallada" (the walled city) for the fortress remnants of the conquistador era. It's in Old San Juan where you'll really see the ancient culture come to life in more than 400 carefully restored 16th- and 17th-century Spanish colonial buildings.

    At their base, the streets are paved with aquadine cobblestone, a blue stone brought over centuries ago on Spanish ships. Old San Juan also features one of the New World's oldest churches and Ponce de Leon's burial site. For some lively nightlife, hang around to spend an evening at the casinos.
