Puerto Rico Pet Friendly Cheap Hotels
What? Bring your pet to Puerto Rico? Of course. Since it is an American province there are no quarantines or lengthy measures as long as the pet has vaccination records and has been certified as healthy by your veterinarian. They will know what papers you need. Puerto Rico is a great place to vacation because English is spoken and the banks carry American currency. You can find several pet friendly hotels on the island, especially around the bigger cities. There is even a doggie beach called Hobie Cat Beach on the Isla Verde, one of Puerto Rico's sub-islands with soft beaches and superb snorkeling. Isla Verde is close to the Luis Munoz Marin Airport on the way to San Juan.
In the capital and largest city, San Juan, you can find great pet friendly hotel discounts. This walled city was a Spanish stronghold in the 1500's and 1600's. There are a lot of historic sites to explore. On Luchetti Street is the Condado Pet Park, the only off-leash park on the island. They have shady gazebos and benches as well as water fountains and an agility course. So you can teach your pooch a new skill and impress your friends when you get home. San Juan also has a lively nightlife with casinos, bars and clubs playing jazz, reggae and rock. Leave Fido in the comfort of your hotel room and venture on the hiking trails in El Yunque Caribbean National Forest, with tropical parrots, waterfalls and lush scenery.
Head to the southern portion of the island to find the second largest city, Ponce. The southern part of Puerto Rico is known for its unusual natural bridges which the ocean waves have caused over centuries of eroding the rocky cliffs. From the grassy knolls above you can witness spectacular sunsets. You will find great snorkeling and fishing here as well as two cheaply priced Ponce pet friendly hotels. (Say that three times fast). Spend one day here and you will understand why they call it the Pearl of the South. This bustling trading port has wonderful old homes to tour as well as museums. Wander in the downtown area's Plaza de las Delicias with its cooling fountains, vendors and fabulous buildings. Ferry over to Caja de Muertos - or Coffin Island. Don't let the name scare you - the beaches are wonderful. So is the old lighthouse. Then drive to the Virgin's Cross, once a lookout point for pirates.
