Overview

Written by a travel writer and city news reporter based in San Juan, Frommer's Puerto Rico gives you an insider's view of the island, with updates on the newest developments and best local experiences.
  • We'll point you to a gorgeous white-sand beach that only locals know about, give you the scoop on both upscale dining and roadside nosh pits, and we list the best places for snorkeling, hiking, golf, sailing, and deep-sea fishing.
  • You'll also get a complete shopper's guide, and up-to-date coverage of the newest nightlife in the region, from casinos to salsa clubs to low-key beach bars.
  • Opinionated reviews. No bland descriptions and lukewarm recommendations. Our expert writers are passionate about their destinations--they tell it like it is in an engaging and helpful way.
  • Exact prices listed for every establishment and activity--no other guides offer such detailed, candid reviews of hotels and restaurants. We include the very best, but also emphasize moderately priced choices for real people.
  • User-friendly features including star ratings and special icons to point readers to great finds, excellent values, insider tips, best bets for kids, special moments, and overrated experiences.
