Nestled in the Caribbean Sea is this golden paradise, the US territory island of Puerto Rico. This tiny island boasts a complex and rich history that dates back to the time of the Spanish Empire. Today, that rich history is imprinted on historic monuments, forts, and castles like Castillo San Felipe de Morro and La Fortaleza in the city of San Juan. As a Caribbean island, Puerto Rico also prides itself on its beautiful beaches that are sure to dazzle beach bums — especially Bahia Bioluminiscente on the island of Vieques and Flamenco Beach in Culebra Island. However, the island’s claim to fame doesn’t stop with its beaches since El Yunque National Forest is the best place for nature enthusiasts. So come on down and read this article on the best spots for glamping in Puerto Rico.
1. Exquisite tent in Orocovis

There’s also a spacious outdoor area where you can disconnect and reconnect with nature. In the morning cook and feast with healthy meals thanks to the locally sourced ingredients. The nearest adventure spot from here is Toro Verde, which is seven minutes away.
