Visitors who want to escape the hustle and bustle of San Juan should head up to the mountains of Aibonito, Puerto Rico, a 45 mi/72 km (one-hour) drive south toward the central region of the island.
Aibonito is known for its flowers and refreshing climate. A flower festival is held annually the last week of June through the first week of July and is a must-see for its wide variety of orchids and tropical flowers in vibrant colors.
The Mirador Piedra Degetau observatory makes an ideal stopover.
Note: Puerto Rico sustained severe damage during Hurricane Maria in September 2017. Recovery efforts may take years. Travelers should investigate current conditions prior to planning a visit.
