For many couples the Caribbean is the ultimate beach wedding destination. Conjuring up an intoxicating concoction of shipwrecked paradises, white sandy coves and glimmering turquoise waters, coconut palms and rum-laden cocktails... it completely lives up to its reputation.
Only 10% of the 7000 islands are inhabited, but the Caribbean is a colourful carnival of lively lifestyles and sleepy sanctuaries making it a perfect destination for romantic celebrations. And with so many islands to choose from the Caribbean offers a rich diversity of cultures and natural environments so it is important for couples to find the right location for their wedding.
Lying east of the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico is a small island offering 270 miles of unspoilt coastline, bioluminescent waters and some of the world’s best beaches. Tropical rainforests cover the north east of the island and its cities sing a rainbow of history and Caribbean charm. Puerto Rico is also one of the most affordable Caribbean islands for tourists and what better place is there to get married than a tropical island known as “the happiest place on earth”?
Puerto Rico has a tropical climate with temperatures averaging 26 degrees Celsius all year round. Couples may prefer to host their wedding during the dry season which runs from December to April but weddings in Puerto Rico are amazing any time of year.
5 reasons why Puerto Rico is a great destination for beach weddings:
If you are looking for more than just another beach experience, Puerto Rico is the ideal place for you. Here, you can see the different shades of blue in the warm crystal clear ocean, feel the soft sand in your toes and relax with the tropical breeze under a palm tree while sipping on the island’s traditional Piña Colada and tasting the exquisite local food.
It’s no surprise that Puerto Rico is known as “the happiest place on earth”. The reasons for this go beyond the beautiful beaches that surround the island and the blue skies with the perfect weather, Puerto Rico is quite simply a place that loves to celebrate life and where the people and the culture that always find a reason to be hospitable, dance and have fun.
One of Puerto Rico’s best features has to be the climate, being a tropical island they do have showers here and there but they usually last for short periods and at the end the sun shows up. Your wedding can be outdoors no matter the season, so why restrict yourself to a few months when you can celebrate with your loved ones in Puerto Rico no matter which date you choose for your wedding.
If a casual beach ceremony is what you envision then Puerto Rico is the ultimate laid-back barefoot wedding destination. Weddings in San Juan with the majestic Atlantic Ocean as your backdrop can be as minimal as you wish because nature will do the rest! Let you wedding host provide the scenery leaving you to just decide on the style of celebration you prefer.

We are continually part of romantic weddings, but for us the most memorable ones are the ones that share a unique story. For example: We had a couple that came to our hotel separately to celebrate “One Hot Summer Night” (Our twist of the Puerto Rican tradition of “Noche de San Juan” where at midnight you throw yourself to the ocean backwards 12 times for good luck in the year). The couple met, got engaged and married with us a couple of years later because they wanted to seal their love where they first met. At the end, the most romantic thing we can ask for is to be part of a couples love story!
