Historic charm, dense jungles and tropical beaches.
As Southwest Airlines has recently annexed AirTran Airways, many new destinations have been added to the low-cost carrier’s routes. Recently, Southwest began operating flights to San Juan, Puerto Rico and as it is a territory of the United States, you can visit the Caribbean without a passport.
In San Juan, you will find a colonial city with many Spanish influences left from their 400 year rule. Old San Juan is a remarkable neighborhood with more than carefully restored 16th- and 17th-century Spanish colonial buildings. Among the finest examples of Spanish Colonial architecture and cobblestone streets you will find the largest citadel in the Caribbean. El Morro was built in 1539 to protect the island from maritime attacks including the real pirates of the Caribbean.
Just outside the city, you will find El Yunque National Forest, the only tropical rainforest in the U.S. Forest system. In its cloud-shrouded mountaintops, you will find wildlife including 50 bird species, 240 plant species and many small animals including Puerto Rico’s unofficial mascot, the famous coqui frogs
With all the exciting and exotic activities, a stay at the luxurious St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort will refresh and relax. The St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort, Puerto Rico is located seaside at the foot of the El Yunque National Forest. The resort is bordered by the 5,000 acre Espíritu Santo River State Preserve and is a 30 minute drive from Old San Juan.
Find your ideal state of relaxation in one of the 139 magnificent rooms, where private terraces lead to spectacular ocean views. Amidst verdant foliage, you will find the finest details, meeting the highest environmental standards. Spa, golf, beach pool all in a luxurious setting on the shores of the Caribbean, the best Puerto Rico has to offer, and through Southwest Airlines, a perfect ESCAPADITA.
