Posted on 29 July 2010 by jose

To celebrate our island’s natural wonders, sights, and colorful culture, EyeTour has compiled the ‘Great Places for Photography in Puerto Rico’ post series. Throughout the series we will feature some of the most amazing spots for photography lovers, hidden places, and suggested photo routes found throughout the different regions of the island. Join us for our first look into Puerto Rico’s Eastern Region!

From El Yunque National Rain Forest to the small island municipalities of Culebra and Vieques, the eastern region of Puerto Rico counts with a great diversity of nature reserves and worldwide renowned beaches. Its proximity to the metropolitan area of San Juan makes the east of Puerto Rico a great destination for day trips and exploring the places that some people like to call paradise.

Culebra Island

The small Island of Culebra is a true paradise full of secluded beaches and the perfect destination for clear skies and the pursuit of nature and underwater photography.

Flamenco Beach: This majestic beach is one of Culebra’s most frequented by visitors. From the distance you can appreciate the perfect half moon shape of the shore and the blue accent of the clear water. If you’re looking for a panoramic  view of this beach you will need to do a long hike to the top of the mountain to the east of the beach.

Dáquiti:  This small bay area is a located at the entrance of the Ensenada Bay where a natural barrier of coral reefs sets the perfect spot for boats to anchor. To find this and more great views from land you have to venture to the southeastern side of the island passing by Club Seabourne hotel towards Punta Soldado Beach.

Municipality of Río Grande

El Yunque Rain Forest: Visit El Yunque and you can expect a great variety of photography opportunities, from wide views to the northern seashore, impressive waterfalls and rivers, to the vibrance of endemic plants and exotic birds. El portal del Yunque is an Information Center useful to plan your visit and gather information of the hiking trails and the diversity of routes available to the public. Situated in the entrance of the forest, visitors can enjoy the outstanding arquitecture of the Portal.

Maunabo

Located on the southeast region of Puerto Rico, Maunabo is a relatively small town with some great lonesome beaches.
