An overwhelming number of couples who plan for a memorable beach wedding never fail to include Caribbean islands among their primary choices. And one of those that make it to almost every short list is Puerto Rico. It’s not surprising for the island that lives up to its title, “La Isla del Encanto” – meaning, The Island of Enchantment.
Island of Enchanting Beaches
The main island of Puerto Rico and its smaller cousins are dotted with white sand beaches, pristine waters, and palm trees. There’s Luquillo Beach for families, Pine Grove for swimmers, Rincon for surfers (in fact, it’s dubbed ‘Little Malibu’), and Playa Esperanza for snorkeling. There are also beaches that are ideal for simply gazing at the perfect scenery.
Hotels, villas, and inns near the seashore allow guests to set out for early morning and late afternoon strolls on the cooled sand, with the refreshing sea breeze blowing on their bodies. This type of atmosphere makes Puerto Rico an ideal location for couples to tie the knot.
