Description of Puerto Rico

Take a stark, narrow valley, add a wall of gleaming white apartments built into the steep hillsides, glorious views, tropical palms and a sandy beach - result: Puerto Rico. Steps thread the hills down to the beach and centre; families with buggies or anyone with trouble walking will find taxis essential. The gently shelving, man-made beach is very popular especially with the British.

 

The resort and, it's beach and Aquapark are very popular with families.

 

The hilly nature of Puerto Rico can make it difficult for people who are less mobile and for buggies
