Frommer's Portable Puerto Rico, 4th Edition, is a concise, pocket-sized guide that takes you straight to the island's very best restaurants, accommodations, and attractions. We'll direct you to the best beaches, from Luquillo Beach--a white sand crescent edged by a vast coconut grove--to Boqueron Beach, which attracts devoted fishermen, sailors, scuba divers, and windsurfers. We'll guide you through the stunning El Yunque rain forest and the caves of the Rio Camuy Cave Park. Searching for some authentic Puerto Rican food? Stop by Ajili Mojili for some stuffed green plantains and arroz con pollo (stewed chicken with saffron rice). We reveal the best places for snorkeling, scuba-diving, golf, sailing, deep-sea fishing--and a host of other activities.
