We follow muse Victoria Germyn and photographer Adam Kentworthy to Puerto Rico to capture new season FAE. The heart and soul of the Carribbean is rich history and culture, exquisite food, pristine beaches, majestic mountains — all packed into one sun-kissed Caribbean paradise. Around every corner, you’ll find a celebration of life, a vibrant cultural experience and a captivating rhythm, making it the perfect location to capture an endless Fiesta Del Sol.
HIT THE BEACH
Puerto Rico delivers classic carribbean charm, swaying palms, ever-present rum drinks and is home to a selection of stunning sandy beaches and bronzed bodies. Pack your FAE Swim, a light read, and SPF for a day of sun-soaking beside the Carribbean sea.
BOOK A DAY TRIP
With East Island Excursions, which motors a small fleet of sleek, high-speed catamarans to Culebra. They'll pick you up from downtown San Juan for the a one-hour drive east to Fajardo, passing the beautiful El Yunque National Forest on your right. Snorkeling off Culebra in a sheltered bay, and an afternoon of swimming and sunbaking alongside a stretch of beautiful sand on the uninhabited island of Culebrita.
WHERE TO EAT
Due south of Condado and Old San Juan, are the art-and-nightlife-driven corridors of Loíza and Santurce. Punto Medio is a charming café good for breakfast pastries and coffee at 1762 Calle Loíza. Consider checking out the vegetarian-driven Dreamcatcher inn, just a block off the beach in nearby Ocean Park or La Cueva del Mar, a few blocks south for its fresh fish tacos.
WHERE TO STAY
Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve is no short of an escape to those looking to relax under the Puerto Rican sun. Pulling up to the resort entrance, the lush landscape and lily pond that leads to the entrance is enough to wow. There’s hardly a reason to leave Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve. It seems that everything you could have thought of, they’ve already squared away.
