Product Description:
Served by dozens of daily flights from cities all around the world, Puerto Rico is unusually easy to reach, balmy and warm throughout the year, full of fine beaches, pools and golf courses, blessed with historic sights and museums, jammed with good quality lodgings, restaurants and shops -- and inexpensive-to-moderate to enjoy. But instead of drowning the reader in massive descriptions of the places that vacationers use, our author confines himself to a smaller, but still comprehensive, list of preferences -- his own several favorites in every price range. He is John Marino, a distinguished journalist on a San Juan, Puerto Rico, daily newspaper, and no one knows Puerto Rico (including Vieques and Culebra) better than him. Frommer's is proud to have snared such a skilled and experienced observer as the author of our guide to this popular U.S. Commonwealth.

Puerto Rico: What Everyone Needs to Know®

Product Description:
Acquired by the United States from Spain in 1898, Puerto Rico has a peculiar status among Latin American and Caribbean countries. As a Commonwealth, the island enjoys limited autonomy over local matters, but the U.S. has dominated it militarily, politically, and economically for much of its recent history. Though they are U.S. citizens, Puerto Ricans do not have their own voting representatives in Congress and cannot vote in presidential elections (although they are able to participate in the primaries). The island's status is a topic of perennial debate, both within and beyond its shores. In recent months its colossal public debt has sparked an economic crisis that has catapulted it onto the national stage and intensified the exodus to the U.S., bringing to the fore many of the unresolved remnants of its colonial history.

Puerto Rico: What Everyone Needs to Know® provides a succinct, authoritative introduction to the Island's rich history, culture, politics, and economy. The book begins with a historical overview of Puerto Rico during the Spanish colonial period (1493-1898). It then focuses on the first five decades of the U.S. colonial regime, particularly its efforts to control local, political, and economic institutions as well as to "Americanize" the Island's culture and language. Jorge Duany delves into the demographic, economic, political, and cultural features of contemporary Puerto Rico-the inner workings of the Commonwealth government and the island's relationship to the United States. Lastly, the book explores the massive population displacement that has characterized Puerto Rico since the mid-20th century.

Despite their ongoing colonial dilemma, Jorge Duany argues that Puerto Ricans display a strong national identity as a Spanish-speaking, Afro-Hispanic-Caribbean nation. While a popular tourist destination, few beyond its shores are familiar with its complex history and diverse culture. Duany takes on the task of educating readers on the most important facets of the unique, troubled, but much beloved isla del encanto.

Explore the rich history and many recreation activities available in this lovely island territory with National Geographic’s Puerto Rico Adventure Map. Cities and towns are easy to identify and roadway designations are clearly indicated. Monuments and historical locations are noted in addition to a variety of sites for surfing, whale watching, diving, kayaking, wind surfing, sailing, and fishing. The locations of airports, harbors, anchorages, ferry routes, and toll plazas take the guesswork out of travel around the islands. Visitor centers are also marked for travelers seeking additional resources.

One side of the print map includes the western half of the commonwealth including San Antonio, Arecibo, Vega Baja, Mayaguez, Ponce, and more. The reverse side shows the eastern half of the archipelago including San Juan, Fajardo, Caguas, Humacao, Cayey, and Guayama. Inset maps provide greater detail of the San Juan Area, Old San Juan, and Isla Mona.

The Commonwealth of Puerto Rico lies in the northeastern Carribean Sea and attracts both visitors who are looking for a quiet island get-away and adventurers seeking excitement. The islands offer some of the most well-preserved Spanish colonial architecture in the New World, stunning beaches and coral reefs, tropical jungles, and all the modern amenities, hip restaurants, and glitzy nightlife you’d expect from a US territory.

Every Adventure Map is printed on durable synthetic paper, making them waterproof, tear-resistant and tough — capable of withstanding the rigors of international travel.

The Old San Juan Walking Tour (Puerto Rico Travel Guide): A step-by-step travel guide for Puerto Rico s most beautiful city
 
Product Description:
If you're coming to Old San Juan and you're the kind of person that likes to explore places on your own, then you have to read “The Old San Juan Walking Tour”. “The Old San Juan Walking Tour” takes you by the hand and guides you through every attraction in the world's most beautiful city (I'm biased).

My name is Orlando Mergal. I'm a landscape photographer, a professional writer and an all-around communications expert. And I've been doing this for a very long time.

But you know what I've been doing even longer? Living in Puerto Rico. My parents moved back to the Island in 1963 when I was only 9 years old. So I've lived most of my life in Puerto Rico. More importantly, Old San Juan has literally been my playground since I was a teenager, and that was also a long time ago.

I just love the place. I visit the city several times a month and I've studied it, photographed it and wrote about every inch of it. I guess you could say that I know the place inside out.

Several years ago I created the first iteration of “The Old San Juan Walking Tour”. It was an audio tour that you could put in your iPod (remember those?) and it would be like a personal guide that would show you every point of interest in the City.

Now I've created the Kindle version and it's totally updated for 2014. Now you can explore the city in advance, look at every picture and decide which attractions interest you the most.

Time is important when visiting Old San Juan. Guess why? Because visitors arriving on cruise ships spend less than 8 hours in the Old City. So if youre one of those you'll maximize your time if you come with a plan.

If you arrive by plane you'll have as much time as your stay allows. But even so, you'll spend that time more wisely if you know exactly what to do and where to go.

“The Old San Juan Walking Tour” is a step-by-step travel guide that covers every important point of interest in the Old City. And to tell you the truth, it can't be done in a day. Old San Juan simply has too many interesting things to see and do to cover it in a single day.

But that's where “The Old San Juan Walking Tour” comes in. You can take your first tour at home, with your Kindle, and decide which attractions interest you the most. That way you'll be able to draw your own route.

Order “The Old San Juan Walking Tour” today and enjoy Puerto Rico's capital city to the fullest.
