Summer is low-season for travel to the Caribbean, so it can be easy to find travel deals to the tropical islands between Memorial Day and Labor Day. But Puerto Rico is an especially pleasing Caribbean summer destination. Temperatures there rarely get unbearable, even during low season. According to Lonely Planet, "At their coolest, daily temperatures [in Puerto Rico] seldom go below 73°F, and at their hottest rarely rise above 86°F." And historically, Puerto Rico has eluded the worst of Atlantic hurricane season, which lasts from June through November. The island hasn't been hit with a Category 4 or 5 storm since the 1930s.
Now, about those deals. Here are a few enticing hotel and resort offers we spotted: This summer, you can save up to 20 percent at Parador El Faro or Parador Boquemar. (Find these deals on the Puerto Rico Tourism Company website.) Receive 30 percent off rates at Rio Mar Beach Resort & Spa. And save 40 percent on every second night's stay at W Retreat & Spa Vieques. (Find this deal on TripAdvisor.)
It's not expensive to get to the island, either. Discount carriers AirTran and JetBlue fly to Puerto Rico, and both airlines often feature sales to the island, especially during summer. Sign up for our fare alerts to find out when discounted tickets from your local hub to Puerto Rico are available.
