In collaboration with Voy, I wrote this piece on how Puerto Rico should be your next overseas destination, for an exotic flair that is still under U.S. jurisdiction. At the same time, I hope to clear misconceptions about the legal status of the territory within the laws of the U.S.

Through a series of unique, unconventional and fortunate events and circumstances, Puerto Rico is an excellent travel destination that is as easy to access as going to Florida, but with much more exotic flair. Because it is an island, Puerto Rico has a very insular character in its day to day life, which can offer a very different experience than visiting any of the contiguous 48 states.

So head on to Voy (we are a proud partner site) and learn something new. Then you can book your vacation to the islands of enchantment.
