Puerto Rico, Cancun or Puerto Vallarta?
Which location would you visit? Been to Puerto Vallarta, & liked it a lot! Prefer nice beaches, less people, nature, tropical.kk Also this is for a June trip.

Puerto Rico and Cancun will pretty much have the same weather considering both are in the Caribbean. Been to PR in June and it was extremely hot and at the time had some rain in the mountains, but didn't rain on the coast. Just cloudy. PV in June I believe gets a lot of rain as we've considered visiting PV two years ago and decided against it. Between PR and Cancun, if you're lookign for less people, PR will answer your question. Cancun is party country!

I have been to both Puerto Vallarta and Puerto Rico. I would go to Puerto Vallarta again hands down. Loved the people, did some great excursions, great food. Personally I would not visit Puerto Rico again.

How come you would not visit Puerto Rico again? Did you like the beaches there?

If you like nice beaches and less people, you should try Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. It's just 40 minutes south of Cancun. We just spent a week at the Gala Resort Playacar and it was one of the nicest, most relaxing vacations we've taken. We also made a day trip to the Mayan Ruins at Tulum. In Playa, you get to experience the beautiful waters and beaches of cancun, with a very laid back atmosphere.
