Planning Your Visit
When should I go?
Puerto Rico is beautiful at all times of the year, but be aware that summer can be wet and hurricane season ranges from June to November.
How long should I stay?
About a week should suffice for all the main points of interest, but if you're particularly interested in the region, you could stay a little longer and combine it with a visit to the Lesser Antilles - there's British and French colonial heritage there.
Do I need a passport to visit Puerto Rico?
Since it is a US unincorporated territory, US citizens do not need a passport to travel there - other ID used for domestic flights is enough. However, if you are a citizen of another nation, you should check the individual entry and visa requirements.
