For Tampa Bay, Florida residents, your next Caribbean getaway is less than three hours away. Nearly two years after Hurricane Maria, Puerto Rico is welcoming and ready for visitors, along with the ever-iconic Caribe Hilton resort, officially debuting a more than $150 million restoration. As a U.S. territory, the island uses U.S. currency and doesn’t require a passport for U.S. citizens to visit, making your next trip as easy as point, click and booked.

Enjoy a taste of the island at the resort’s Mojito’s Caribbean Fusion, including mofongo and a shareable paella plate. Relaxation awaits in the newly designed 15-treatment-room Zen Spa Océano and so much more. Just a short trip away, guests can explore the cobblestone streets and colorful architecture in Old San Juan while getting a glimpse into Puerto Rico’s storied past. And no trip is complete without a signature Piña Colada – invented at Caribe Hilton back in 1954.
