Written by more than 175 outspoken travelers around the globe, Frommer’s Complete Guides help travelers experience places the way locals do.

• More annually updated guides than any other series

• 16-page color section and foldout map in all annual guides

• Outspoken opinions, exact prices, and suggested itineraries

• Dozens of detailed maps in an easy-to-read, two-color design

Much more detailed and complete than its major competitors, Frommer's Puerto Rico, 9th Editiongives you in-depth, honest reviews of lavish honeymoon resorts, intimate inns, family-friendly condos, and dirt cheap hostels. Written by a travel writer and city news reporter based in San Juan, this edition has its finger on the pulse of the island, with updates on the latest openings and selections in every price category. We'll point you to a gorgeous white-sand beach that only locals know about, give you the scoop on both upscale dining and roadside nosh pits, and we list the best places for snorkeling, hiking, golf, sailing, deep-sea fishing — even the best town to see a cockfight.

You'll also get a complete shopper's guide, and up-to-date coverage of the newest nightlife in the region, from casinos to salsa clubs to lowkey beach bars. Look for tips on finding the best package deals, plus a color fold-out map.

Synopsis:

In 2006, more than 5 million people traveled to Puerto Rico. The island's tourism market is expected to grow 3.2% annually over the next 10 years.
