Puerto Rico catamaran
Puerto Rico catamaran cruise, for a different holiday in the magical atmosphere of the Caribbean: beautiful sea, sun, pristine beaches and a country with a sparkling culture not yet beaten by mass tourism. The island, which retains the name given to it by the Spanish colonizers, with reference to the wealth that departed from its port, is located between the Dominican Republic and the Virgin Islands, therefore in the northern part of the Caribbean (in fact it is the last land to the east of the Greater Antilles). Today it is a modern country, with lively cities and colorful villages, but with a relaxed and friendly attitude, in a melting pot of Caribbean, Latin American and American culture. Puerto Ricans have in fact been US citizens since 1917 (even if they do not vote in elections) and recently the positive outcome of a referendum has kicked off the process of the official request to become the 51st state in the stars and stripes. The island is almost rectangular and measures approximately 170 km in length. It is mountainous, with verdant nature and several beautiful national parks in the interior. You arrive in San Juan, the capital metropolis where three quarters of the island's inhabitants live, and in just 45 minutes you will arrive at the Fajardo yacht marina, where our Puerto Rico charter operators are ready to offer you a welcome and professional assistance. There are currently 7 catamarans available: 4 Lagoon and then Leopard, Fountaine Pajot and Majestic. The dimensions are between 42 and 56 feet, they are all brand new or perfectly overhauled to leave for a wonderful holiday as comfortable as if you were in a suite. The catamarans are set up with the utmost luxury, and have air conditioning, barbecue, ice machine, TV and modem on board. They can be hired with a local expert skipper or, if you want to have top service, with the full crew at your disposal, consisting not only of skipper but also of sailor, hostess and cook. The crew will have their own reserved area so as not to disturb customers. From Fajardo the most beautiful seaside destinations of Puerto Rico can be reached with short navigations. A brief review of them: the nearby bays of Playa Escondida and Playa Colora, the fascinating area of Seven Beaches, with its turquoise sea and many activities (kayaking, kitesurfing, dinghy, Snorkeling and diving. Not far from Fajardo, the Bioluminescente Bay , a unique show of its kind of colored natural lights on the water to be seen in the dark. If you want tranquility, head east to the island of Vieques, formerly a US military base which, after reclamation, has become a Marine National Park, a sailing and diving paradise. Its beaches are magnificent, of white sand fringed with coconut palms. About 20 miles from Fajardo, Puerto Rico's last land to emerge: Culebra Island. If you like, even more remote and wild than the previous one; depending on the season you will find yourself on the beaches of Tamarindo or Flamingo Beach, swimming alone with the giant turtles. But don't forget San Juan: the old cobbled historic center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Colonial architecture alternates with colorful houses, local craft shops and artists' shops. Then the San Felipe del Moro Fortress, dating back to the 18th century, with its mammoth ramparts that stand out against the ocean. Finally, the El Yunque National Forest, in the interior of the island, is unmissable: a lush subtropical scenery made up of woods, lakes and waterfalls, with a path that reaches the summit of Cerro El Toro.
