PUERTO RICO and its Nude Beaches.
We called it The Enchanted Island of Puerto Rico others called us The Continent of Puerto Rico but we the natives or Puerto Rico preferred being called “Borinquen” as the native Tainos Indians used to call us since before Christopher Columbus discovered our coasts way back Oct. 19, 1493. The island has a rich Spanish heritage that fascinates every visitor. Following the Spanish-American War in 1898, Spain ceded the island to the United States, and in 1917 Puerto Ricans were granted US citizenship. Today, there is a harmonious mingling of Spanish and American cultures.
From laid back to beachfront deluxe, Puerto Rico is an island offering so many vacation experiences. In the busy capital, San Juan, you'll find sightseeing attractions, luxury hotels, superb restaurants, exciting nightlife, and dazzling casinos. Out in the countryside, the mood is quite different it's another world, several other worlds, actually. Spanish colonial towns, a lush rain forest, quiet seaside restaurants and golden beaches await you.
The spirit of the colonial period is most evident in Old San Juan, where numerous historic sites and monuments have undergone restoration in an effort to preserve Puerto Rico's rich heritage. The fortress walls that guard San Juan's harbor at Fort San Cristobal are notable as a strategic masterpiece with its 17th Century military design and an intricate network of tunnels. Castillo de San Felipe del Morro is a commanding six-story fort with towers and dungeons to explore.
A combination of mountain ranges and the prevailing trade winds divide the island into several climate zones. A lush tropical jungle covers the eastern mountains as the peaks are drenched in rain and shrouded in the cloud forest at El Yunque. See brightly colored parrots, fragrant orchids and over 200 species of tropical ferns and trees. Popular hiking and walking trails take you through forests and gardens to cascading waterfalls. North and west of the mountains, short grasses and cacti mark the landscape.
San Juan has grand beaches for sunning and clear waters for swimming, snorkeling, and other water sports. Along the island's 272 miles of coastline you'll find beaches dotted with swaying palm trees and private sandy coves. The continental shelf that extends along three sides of Puerto Rico offers an abundance of coral reefs, caves, sea walls, and trenches for scuba divers to explore. Boating, fishing, and sailing trips are readily available all around the island.
Away from the water there is plenty of activity too. Golf, tennis, horseback riding, hiking, bicycling, and that old favorite, shopping is available in San Juan and around the island. Artisans' shops and craft centers display many artworks that portray life on the island. There's even horse racing at the El Comandante.
You can dine in cosmopolitan style in San Juan where resorts and international restaurants feature sophisticated ambience and formal service. Some of the island's best restaurants, known as “mesones gastronomicos” (gastronomic inns) are outside the San Juan area; they feature local specialties at quite reasonable prices.
We all enjoy our tropical climate year-around. Average coastal temperatures are a comfortable, 75-83 degrees F.; slightly cooler in the evenings and in the mountains. Summer highs can hit 95 degrees Fahrenheit, but the eastern trade winds always keep the air moving. Average annual rainfall is 62 inches, with susceptibility to summer storms and hurricanes from August-October.
Whether you choose to spend your vacation at a sleek resort in the capital or at an unpretentious inn in the island's traditional countryside, it probably won't take you long to discover why Puerto Rico is one of the most popular Caribbean destinations. We are lying 1000 miles southeast of Miami, 80 miles east of the Dominican Republic and 50 miles west of the US Virgin Islands; Puerto Rico is the easternmost and smallest of the Greater Antilles. Three small offshore territories flank the main island: Vieques, Culebra, and Mona.
What our civil code says about dishonest exhibitions: All persons who voluntarily expose their private parts or any other intimate part of their body in any site in which is present another person, including agents the public order, to whom such exhibition could offend or bother, will be sanctioned with a fine that will not exceed two hundred fifty dollars and/or imprisonment that will not exceed three months. Also, if the act takes place in the presence of a person16 years of age or younger, the punishment will be of imprisonment of a maximum term of six months and/or a maximum fine of five hundred dollars.
Small groups of nudist friends gather to share some sea and sun on secluded beaches where no other civilians could feel offended or bothered.
Few of those beaches are: Playa Colora and Playa El Convento in Fajardo; Tamarindo Beach in Guánica, La Cueva De Las Golondrinas Hacienda La Esperanza in Manati; Base Ramey Punta Borinquen in Aguadilla, Zoni Beach in Culebra; and other secluded beaches around the island.
