Puerto Rico Honeymoon Hack

Is a Cheap Puerto Rico Honeymoon Right for Us?

Puerto Rico offers a terrific tranquil honeymoon retreat.  This Puerto Rico honeymoon hack whisks you away from the beautiful Spanish colonial buildings of San Juan to a relaxing Hyatt resort 35 minutes east of the airport on Coco beach.  You’ll relax and drink cocktails as the swim up bar and lay out in the hot sun. 

San Juan airport (SJU) is accessible from most east coast hubs within the US.  Puerto Rico is a protectorate of the United States and does not require a passport for entry.

Honeymoon Hacker Method

Puerto Rico is a fantastic island destination for couples that want a beach vacation but don’t hold passports.

To make this trip happen you and your future spouse will need to open a few new credit cards and use them for your regular spending and wedding expenses in order to earn the significant signup bonuses that were offered with those cards.
