Puerto Rico - ZNG Cruises and Retreats, Clearwater, Florida

Puerto Rico

Also known as the Island of Enchantment, Puerto Rico has been a US territory for over 100 years.  Therefore, American citizens don’t need a passport to go to Puerto Rico.

Puerto Rico is a very small island, but big in character. It’s full of history and culture, which includes art, music and cuisine.  It also offers a lot of natural wonders. Visitors can enjoy a day of culture and history visiting Old San Juan, as well as enjoy adventure activities such as zip lining in the longest Zip Line in the world, kayaking at night in the bioluminescent bay or hiking the only tropical rainforest in the US Park system.

Puerto Rico has become a wellness haven in recent years, with a few well-appointed lodging facilities offering yoga retreats, ayurvedic cooking classes, massage therapies, and hikes by waterfalls, to mention a few activities.  A special mention goes to the amazing resorts that offer incredible spa experiences.

Also known as the Land of Ice and Fire, it is also a relatively small island, full of history and folklore.  Iceland is known for its natural wonders like its volcanoes, ice caves, glaciers, waterfalls, canyons and fjords. Everywhere you look, you only see wonders. And Iceland is open for visitors throughout the entire year.  The best time of the year to see the Northern Lights is fall and winter.

Reykjavík is a lovely little city filled with museums, art galleries and restaurants.  A special mention goes to the incredible Icelandic cuisine, including some very unique dishes such as fermented shark, and horse steak.

Iceland is an adventurer’s paradise, from hiking by volcanoes and diving between continents, to snowmobiling and glacier hiking.

Iceland is also known for its geothermal activity and it’s packed with geothermal baths around the country, making it a wellness haven.  The best known geothermal bath is the Blue Lagoon, named as one of the 25 natural wonders by National Geographic. It is composed of 70% ocean water and 30% freshwater, enriched with silica, algae, and minerals. It is heaven on earth.
