Treasure Islands

As the temperature drops in the Northern Hemisphere, a certain flight impulse takes hold in travelers' hearts. So, to help facilitate your escape, we offer a dozen of the world's best island destinations—from tropical to temperate, and classic to unexpected.

PUERTO RICO

Famed for beautiful beaches and verdant rain forests, Puerto Rico also boasts a founding history that predates the Mayflower by more than a century. The capital, San Juan, was a military outpost for 16th-century conquistadores, who underscored the island’s strategic importance by building Castillo San Felipe del Morro, more commonly known as El Morro. Where the architecture of San Juan is usually associated with elegant, pastel-hued colonial buildings, El Morro is all muscle, a massive hunk of brown stone looming over San Juan Bay. There are other historic sites nearby—the City Wall, San Juan Cathedral—but it’s out here on the promontory that you get a feel for this city’s sense of itself and its former role as “Guardian of the New World.”

    With a circumference of 64 Kim the island has 10 major sites to visit. There are several more interesting sites in the mountains and steep valleys well worth the effort hidden waterfalls and cool pools.
    The wonderful Mantigue Island 20 minutes off shore offers a true Robinson Crusoe experience, with the greeting ” hi friend” a nice touch by all the local kids.
    New flights from Cebu (Pacific) every MWF offer an easier route however for me the ferry ride arriving from Balingoan or Fast Cat from CDO always give the best view and excite the new visitor.
