The island of Puerto Rico is located in the northern Caribbean Sea, some 1,600 kilometers (1,000 miles) southeast of Florida. With the Dominican Republic to its west and the British Virgin Islands to its east, the commonwealth comprises the main island of Puerto Rico together with the smaller islands of Culebra and Vieques. On Puerto Rico, coastal plains and hills rise to the peaks of the Cordillera Central mountain range, which runs though the interior of the island. The island is dotted with rivers and lakes, and features a lush rain forest, El Yunque, in the northern plateau region.
Warm Caribbean currents keep Puerto Rico's climate temperate year-round. Temperatures rarely drop below 19C (66F) or rise above 32C (90F). Rain showers are frequent, with the most precipitation falling from May to December. Severe hurricanes can hit the islands between June and November.
Culebra has some of the best white sand beaches with no large hotels. Located 17 miles (27km) east of Puerto Rico's mainland it is approximately 7 by 5 miles (11 by 8 km) Its coast is marked by cliffs, sandy coral beaches and mangrove forests. These small islands are all classified as nature reserves and several nature reserves also exist on the main island. The island of Culebra can be reached through private boats, ferry, or plane. Ferry service is available from Fajardo. Ferries make several trips a day to the main island for an approximate fare of $4.50 (round trip).
Culebra also has a small airport, Benjamín Rivera Noriega Airport, with domestic service to the mainland and Vieques. The airport is served by small airlines:
Vieques lies about 8 miles (13 km) east of the Puerto Rican mainland, and measures about 21 miles (34 km) long by 4 miles (6 km) wide Vieques is a municipio of Puerto Rico, translated as "municipality" and in this context roughly equivalent to "township". It is in the Puerto Rican electoral district of Carolina. Local government is under the leadership of a mayor.
Vieques is served by Antonio Rivera Rodríguez Airport Services to the island run from San Juan's Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport, Ceiba Airport or Isla Grande Airport (20-30 minute flight). Flights are also available between Vieques, Saint Croix and Saint Thomas.

Puerto Rico is a holiday paradise. The exotic and beautiful locations, with white sandy beaches, mountains, rain forest and skyscrapers beckon tourists to explore the natural beauty of the country. A large number of tourists are attracted to Puerto Rico due the fact that visitors do not need passport to enter Puerto Rico from America every year. One should visit San Juan, which is also the capital of Puerto Rico and "La Ciudad Amurallada" (city surrounded with walls). The most visited places are Plaza San Jose, Plaza del Quinto Centenario (Memorial of 500th anniversary of Columbus discovery of the New World) fort El Morro and the Pigeon park ("Parque de las Palomas").
