Set back from the busy coast, Palmer has a charming, hidden-away atmosphere.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Surfing Puerto Rico. Discover out-of-the-way places like La Mina Falls and Tuna Point Lighthouse. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Casa Museo Federico Degetau and Estudio de Arte Samuel Lind. Make the 16th (Tue) an awe-inspiring day at The El Yunque Rain Forest. Next up on the itinerary: enjoy the sand and surf at Luquillo Beach, kick your exploration up a notch at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, admire the sheer force of La Coca Falls, and examine the collection at El Portal Tropical Forest Center.

With much of Culebra a nature refuge, the tropical island has been protected from overdevelopment, chain hotels, and the cruise set.
Step out of the city life by going to Zoni Beach and Carlos Rosario Beach. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Tamarindo Beach and Flamenco Beach. The adventure continues: paddle through the water with a kayaking and canoeing tour and stop by Zinkowski Art Studio.
