How to Plan the Ideal Vacation for Your Family in Puerto Rico

With no passport required for U.S. citizens, Puerto Rico is a fantastic, convenient family vacation destination that’s just a direct flight away from the East Coast. You’ll enjoy beautiful beaches, explore nature and history, try different foods, and maybe even learn a little Spanish. Roughly the size of Connecticut, Puerto Rico offers family accommodations ranging from rustic camping in the rainforest and glamping in luxury tents, to world-class resorts and private houses with private pools and fantastic views of the Atlantic Ocean.

The Best Destinations for Family Vacations in Puerto Rico

The Best Destinations for Family Vacations in Puerto Rico

Known as the Island of Enchantment, Puerto Rico offers a diverse array of vacation destinations, including popular kid-friendly choices, for the whole family to enjoy.

  • 1. Old San Juan

    With Spanish colonial architecture dating from the 16th century, Old San Juan offers colorful, walkable cobblestone streets full of cafes, shops, and restaurants. There's also an old town area with historic fortifications, and great views of the bay.

  • 2. Vieques

    Offering a laid-back beach vibe with various small towns to explore, the island of Vieques is just over an hour's ferry ride from Fajardo, southeast of San Juan. It’s a great alternative for spending some quiet beach time with your family.

  • 3. Ponce

    Another one of Puerto Rico's historical treasures, Ponce has many museums and rich architectural influences. Check out the boats in the tranquil harbor along the Caribbean Sea, or head to one of the many parks for your kids to expend some energy in.

  • 4. Rincón

    Rincón's unique location along the west coast of the island gives you the opportunity to experience both the more active North Atlantic Ocean waters and the quieter Caribbean Sea. The city is known for its many beaches which attract surfers, swimmers, and sunbathers.

Things to Do During Your Family Vacation in Puerto Rico

Things to Do During Your Family Vacation in Puerto Rico

When it comes to your family vacation in Puerto Rico, there’s a seemingly endless array of things to see and do, both on the main island and other areas such as Vieques.

  • 1. Enjoying the Beaches

    Puerto Rico has many great beaches for families to enjoy, including the expansive Isla Verde or the tiny, lifeguarded Playa El Escambrón. There are natural rock-protected kiddie areas at both Playita del Condado and Playa La Posita. Playa Caracas on Vieques is known for being frequented by grazing horses.

  • 2. Museums and Parks

    Visit the largest radio telescope in the world at the Arecibo Observatory, or see the natural beauty and animals at Vieques National Wildlife Refuge. The 1800s-vintage Fortin Conde de Mirasol fortress on Vieques is definitely worth a visit, as is the impressive Castillo San Felipe del Morro in Old San Juan, with its cannons pointing from the castle walls to the sea.

  • 3. Get Your Adventure on

    Rincón is an awesome destination for both learning to surf on the Atlantic, or to snorkel in the calmer waters of the Caribbean. You can explore the outskirts of the biodiverse El Yunque National Forest by going horseback or ATV riding at the nearby Carabalí Rainforest Adventure Park.

What to Pack for Your Family Vacation in Puerto Rico

What to Pack for Your Family Vacation in Puerto Rico

With Puerto Rico's average temperatures in the low 80s year round, you can focus on packing casual, lightweight clothing as you would for any other warm weather vacation destination.

  • 1. Casual is Key

    When traveling with kids to a sunny location, pack a selection of shorts, T-shirts, sandals, and flip flops, as well as two swim suits, so one can dry while the other is being worn. A light rain jacket, sneakers, and a couple pairs of pants are helpful. Depending on your length of stay, be prepared to do some laundry along the way, or pack patterned clothing that’s less likely to show stains.

  • 2. Let Your Kids Help Pack

    With your guidance, let your kids pack a special toy from home, a few snacks, a basic change of clothes, a swimsuit, and anything else they’ll require for the flight into a carry-on backpack. Getting them involved in the packing process helps to ease any potential anxiety and stress about traveling.

  • 3. Soaking up the Sun

    While you can always pick up many necessities upon arrival in Puerto Rico, it never hurts to be prepared for the hot sun. Sun exposure can easily cause a sunburn, especially with your little ones. Bring sun hats, sunglasses, and sunblock with a high SPF factor, along with easy-to-pack beach toys. A pair of inexpensive water shoes is always a good idea.
