Are you looking for the perfect destination for your elopement wedding? Puerto Rico should be at the top of your list.
Take the opportunity to do something a little adventurous and different, while saving some money in the process. Here are the Top 10 Reasons that make Puerto Rico the ideal location for you elopement or mini-wedding.
10: No Passport required: As a U.S. territory, Puerto Rico allows you to have an “exotic” destination wedding without the hassles of passports, visas, customs, and immigration. What is more, there are direct flights from more than 20 U.S. cities, making it an easy hop over.
9: Only the best parts of Latin America and the Caribbean: Puerto Rico culture is the best of both worlds with great music, dancing, food, people, nightlife, and affordability but you can drink the water and the island is clean.
8: World-Class Accommodations that meet U.S. standards: No need to wonder about what a 3-star hotel really means here. Hotels and restaurants adhere to U.S. guidelines. All of the best, familiar brands are here including Ritz Carlton, Marriott, Fairmont, Hyatt, St. Regis, and Vanderbilt as well as Boutique offerings that rival others the world over.
7: No decisions=No headaches: We line up all the best vendors and plan every detail of your big day to be just right for you. The only decision you have to make is to come to PR and we take care of everything else.
6: Weather: With 365 days of sunshine and an average temperature in the 80s, you can get married here any time of year. Even on the rainiest day, precipitation rarely covers all of the island. So put those jackets away, grab a swimsuit, and come enjoy some Vitamin D.
5: Covid-cautious: Puerto Rico has taken extreme precautions since March 2020 to prevent the spread of Corona Virus and Covid-19 and it has worked. Levels of the illness are lower than almost anywhere else in the U.S. Our socially distanced ceremony planning will ensure that the risk is minimal.
4: Whatever you want, we got it: Barefoot beach wedding? First kiss under a waterfall? Newlywed among rainforest ferns? Exchanging rings in the most historical sights the U.S. has to offer? Whatever you desire for your wedding landscape, Puerto Rico has it.
3: Always private, always intimate: Big weddings are OUT. You want a wedding that is all about you. The low population of Puerto Rico and endless list of ceremony locations ensures that you will be the spotlight of your own wedding. No competing with tourists or other weddings for the venue here.
2: Affordable: Did we mention that Puerto Rico is Latin America? As such, the prices of food, accomodations, and entertainment are lower than those of most Caribbean destinations.

1: Fun: Above all else, Puerto Ricans know how to have a good time. Our couples are laid-back folks looking for fun, adventure, and memories that will last a lifetime without the stress of planning a wedding. If this sounds like you, a Puerto Rico elopement will not disappoint.
