If it’s surf beaches that you’re after in Puerto Rico, look no further than a Caribbean wedding in Porta del Sol. This sliver of land is a small coastal city and home to some of Puerto Rico’s best surf and dive sites. Known for its crystal clear waters, Porta del Sol has active marine life and excellent visibility, with scores of lion fish, flounder, trumpet fish and eels. The area is also commercially developed, meaning you can expect shopping malls, along with the Caribbean’s largest aquatic theme park. The city center of Aguadilla is also historic and worth a visit, with beautiful 19th-century plazas like Plaza Colon to amble through.
