SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico, March 31 /PRNewswire/ — Exploring Puerto Rico is as easy as renting a car and driving along a highway or coastline road and taking in the diverse topography, attractions and activities. There is no better way to complete this experience than by staying in the many of the island’s Paradores. From the lush green of El Yunque to the black coral wall off the coast of La Parguera or the clear blue surfing waters of Rincon, these small lodgings offer locations that fulfill the interests of a wide variety of travelers. Through October 2005, selected Paradores throughout the island are offering guests special discounted rates.

“We encourage travelers to choose our Paradores for their next vacation, and truly experience our culture and history in a very personal way.
