Romance is an adventure at Serafina Beach Hotel! From secluded, white sand beaches to tropical jungle hideaways, you’ll fall in love with the amazing journey. The heart of San Juan is alive with culture, passion, intrigue and memories. Embark on the happily ever after of a lifetime and discover why Puerto Rico is the perfect honeymoon destination.
What To Know Before You Go
Every explorer duo knows it’s best to go prepared! Luckily, Puerto Rico is a very welcoming destination for couples. It’s important to keep in mind that Puerto Rico is a U.S. territory. This means if you are a U.S. citizen, there’s no need to pack a passport. English is widely spoken (though taking a crash course in Spanish with your S.O. is a fun way to get in the mood!) and the U.S. dollar is the country’s currency.
Map out your visit starting with the time of year. There’s no wrong time to visit the beautiful island hideaway, but March through August is ideal.
Secure your vehicle of choice for a high-energy adventure! Uber and private transportation are readily available through our hotel concierge.
Last but not least, create a bucket list of your must-do-activities, but leave room for a little spontaneity. We’ll get you started with these fantastic reasons why Puerto Rico is the best getaway for honeymoon couples!

Soar on a Zipline
You may have spotted Jimmy Fallon flying over the Puerto Rican rainforest on the world’s second largest zipline course. Now you and your forever-travel-buddy can challenge The Monster, as well as an array of ziplining courses near San Juan.
Visit the El Yunque tropical rainforest for a chance to hop from tree to tree. This course will delight first-time zipliners and pro’s alike. You may even be lucky enough to enjoy a close encounter with some of the native wildlife!
Toro Negro is another great option for ziplining. The highest rainforest in Puerto Rico, Toro Negro’s course offers breathtaking island views.
Last but not least, The Monster is the Everest of zip lines, reaching 1.5 miles with flight speeds up to 152.8 km/h. Plan a day trip to beautiful Toro Verde Nature Adventure Park and prepare to conquer your high flying dreams.
Hike the Rainforests
Puerto Rico is home to North America’s only tropical rainforest. El Yunque National Rainforest offers 28,000 acres of emerald trees, pristine waterfalls and hidden pools for the intrepid couple to explore.
Explore a Cave
Hike through the mystical caves of Cueva Ventana (aptly named “The Window“) to a heart-stopping, romantic view of the Rio Grande de Arecibo Valley (pro tip: try an evening hike with Aventura Cueva Ventana ecotourism company!).
Stay cool with a raft trip down the Tanama River of Utuado, which follows a series of interconnected caverns. Check out the stalagmite formations of Puerto Rico’s Cueva del Viento (“The Wind Cavern”) — but beware of bats as you trek through the uncharted regions of this ancient formation.
Climb, hike, spelunk, rappel, and raft — however you explore, Puerto Rico’s caves are a must!
Ride the Waves
There’s no lack of water excursions to be had in San Juan. Paddleboarding, fishing, snorkeling, and even surfing are great couples’ activities for an unforgettable romantic getaway.
Travel Through History
Puerto Rico is rich in history and culture. From local art to ancient hieroglyphs, there’s something for everyone. Our favorite couples’ retreat is the colorful district of Old San Juan.
This 465-year-old district was initially designed as a military stronghold before giving way to the charming residential district we know and love. Blue cobblestone streets lead the way to shops, restaurants, art museums, and more!
Celebrate your happily ever after by treating yourself and your spouse to delicious local fare. If you’re a self-proclaimed Foodie, San Juan is the destination for you. Here are a few of the best places to eat in Puerto Rico that have made it onto our short list:
Farmers market meets island cookout. This traditional, family-run eatery has been in business since the 1970’s. Classic Puerto Rican dishes like Mofongo (mashed plantain) with Camarones al Ajillo (shrimps in garlic sauce) are a must try. Located in the heart of Old San Juan district, blue cobblestone architecture and historic buildings set the scene for the perfect lunch date.
Paleta is sweet and so are you! Satisfy your sugar craving with fresh, locally crafted artisan fruit pops. A variety of toppings and flavors abound, including exotic tastes like tamarind, strawberry-mojito, dulce de leche, and chocolate dipped coconut.
