What is the best season to go to Puerto Rico?

Puerto Rico is a very popular destination for those who want to rent a boat! (top 3 boat rental destinations in 2021)

The peak tourist season normally starts from late November and lasts till April. That’s when tourists from colder places like to come and enjoy all the seasonal activities.

However, the best season to sail in Puerto Rico is from mid-April to the beginning of June – you will find the pleasant weather and much less crowd than during tourist peak season once you put your foot on the ground.

Do I need a passport to travel to Puerto Rico?

Puerto Rico is part of U.S. territory and all the general rules for travelling to the USA from your homeland might be applicable for traveling to Puerto Rico.

If you are an American Citizen it might be acceptable to travel to Puerto Rico with a standard ID card. Though it depends on your travel route, the destination you start from or the international airports where you have a layover, you will probably be asked for the passport and the visa for the countries you have in your itinerary, if any. Please, check your route and contact the respective consulates before you travel to make sure you present all the required documents for your travel to Puerto Rico.

If you are non-US citizen, please contact the U.S. Embassy for the visa and document requirements before you travel to Puerto Rico. Also please check your travelling itinerary if you have any other countries, make sure you check their requirements for travel documents.   

Do I need insurance to travel to Puerto Rico?

It is always a good idea to have insurance for your travel in order to secure any emergency or unplanned medical expenses.

What essentials to pack for a boat trip in Puerto Rico?

It is always a good idea to travel light when renting a boat in Puerto Rico. Here are some practical light weight items which you might consider for your boating trip:

  • Cotton towels are very absorbent, eco-friendly, super soft and comfortable, and can be used as a beach blanket, a towel and even a throw in the evening or in the airplane.
  • Sunblock and lip balm. Sunscreens can be surprisingly expensive in Puerto Rico. You might think of taking your favourite sunscreen SPF50+ with you and opt for a reef-safe one as it will protect you and the ocean. Apply it according to the instructions on your sunscreen bottle, usually every 2 hours. Remember, a lip balm will protect your lip skin from the sun and wind. Always keep it in your pocket.
  • Aloe-vera cooling gel. There is always a chance that sunburn might happen while sailing. So apply aloe-vera gel and your skin temperature will drop a few degrees.
  • Sunglasses
  • Hat

What to do in Puerto Rico if I rent a boat?

Relax and sail around the island and explore all the beauty of Puerto Rico.

It takes a short boat ride to explore Vieques island which, according to the Guinness World Records, has the brightest bioluminescent bay in the world - Mosquito Bay. It is definitely worth staying overnight on your boat or yacht near the bay to enjoy the spectacular natural glow. Low light pollution and a new or crescent moon will make the night show much brighter.

The adventure of sailing a yacht in Puerto Rico could bring you to the Island of Culebra - another amazing destination with its white sand beaches surrounded by waveless turquoise waters. To name a few Culebra beaches, Flamenco Beach is often ranked among the best in the world and Tortuga is a perfect place for snorkelling with green turtles.

Remember: Use your sunscreen every 2 hours to protect your skin. Wear a hat and sunglasses. Cover your shoulders with a cotton shirt. 

Hydrate – keep sipping water from your water bottle on the go. Remember, if you are thirsty, it is a strong signal that your body really needs hydration.
