The United States only has one tropical rain forest and it's located in Paradise—Puerto Rico if you want to be specific. Lush tree-laden mountains gently roll into the crystal-clear blue sea in a seamless parade of flora and fauna that would be the envy of any fireworks display. Cascading fresh-water waterfalls, buttery-sand beaches, and a few human improvisations like state-of-the-art resorts and pristine golf courses beg the question: If heaven exists, might it be on this Cloud Nine in the Caribbean?
Nestled between the Caribbean Sea and the El Yunque National Forest, the Rio Mar Beach Resort and Spa, a Wyndham Grand Resort is a lush hideaway and the perfect site to get an up-close-and-personal view of the island with panoramic ocean vistas to the front and scenic rain forest scenes to the back. No compromises have been made in theses richly appointed guest rooms that will become your private haven. Lounge on your furnished balcony enjoying the spectacular sight of the rain forest or the clear blue water of the Caribbean before you satisfy your appetite at any of the resort's eight restaurants or hang with your crew at the oceanside Tiki Bar & Grill.
Located on the coast about 30 minutes east of San Juan, this 500-acre property shines when it comes to recreational activities, offering something for everyone. Stroll along a mile of palm-lined beach, which Fodor's review calls "one of the resort's gems," or get active with motorized (or nonmotorized) rentals from the Water Sports Hut.
Sun poolside at the tranquil adult pool or splash in the enormous activity pool, which boasts a waterslide and complimentary organized activities. Indulge in a treatment at the Mandara Spa, rally at the tennis courts, tee up at two championship golf courses, or get lucky at the casino.
And when you get the urge to explore your surroundings, tours are available for history buffs as well as adventure fiends. Arrange to walk the cobblestone streets of Old San Juan, dabble at the Bacardi rum distillery, or get an adrenaline jolt mountain biking, riding ATVs in the rain forest, or ziplining above the canopy.
