Endless sunshine and warm tropical breezes complement Puerto Rico’s perfect mix of laid-back beaches and outdoor adventures. The Wyndham Grand Rio Mar Puerto Rico Golf & Beach Resort features a premier location mere steps away from a private stretch of golden sand along the Atlantic, and is the closest resort in Puerto Rico to El Yunque Rainforest. The inspiring, otherworldly beauty of Bioluminescent Bay is in the waters just off our coast, with Bio Bay tours in Puerto Rico that can be arranged at their onsite tour company for effortless convenience. The hotel is also a short drive from the historic attractions of Old San Juan, the “Second City” of Ponce, and one of the island’s most popular activities – ziplining.
