So you’ve decided to have a destination wedding or an adventure elopement in Puerto Rico. Now it’s time to decide where to have your wedding or where to elope. This can be a daunting task because there are so many options and they’re all epic in their own way!

Puerto Rico is one of the few places in the world that’s capable of bragging about how much natural beauty and diversity it has within such a tiny place. No matter where you are on the island, you are never more than a 2-hour drive away from white, yellow, or black sand beaches, ocean-view cliffs, dry deserts, rocky mountains, forest-covered mountains, caverns, and lush rainforests. You can find almost any type of landscape imaginable. Add to that the beautiful architecture, from preserved historical sites to modern-day luxury or boutique resorts, the decision of where to say I do can be overwhelming. But rest assured that whether you’re planning a big luxury style wedding or a small bohemian elopement, Puerto Rico has a location for you!

Puerto Rico has the perfect blend of unspoiled island life with modern infrastructure, allowing you to go from adventuring somewhere remote off the grid and then back to civilization easily. Puerto Rico is also part of the United States which means no passport for American citizens and a big portion of the locals speak English, making Puerto Rico an ideal destination wedding or elopement location.

I’ve designated this page to help you find the best places to elope or have your wedding depending on the type of adventure or setting you envision for your day!
