St. Regis Bahia Beach

Visiting Puerto Rico has loads of perks, like not needing to bring a passport or change currency, and the myriad opportunities to bust out your devastating Ricky Ricardo impression. Wait, he was Cuban? Well, Ricky Martin then, your impressions suck anyway. A new reason to hit Puerto Rico: The St. Regis Bahia Beach.A freshly unveiled property just outside of Old San Juan, SRBB's a 483ac, 139-room resort set along two miles of private beach, and nestled next to a lush nationally protected rainforest on the site of a now-defunct coconut plantation, so bring your girlfriend to get your hands on some Mounds. Among their luxurious trappings are 18 holes from noted course architect Robert Jones Jr., a 10,000sqft spa; and a resto from famed chef Jean Georges Vongerichten called Fern (thankfully not Red Fern, as there you just have to keep burying hot dogs). Those seeking nature can go sea kayaking or snorkeling along the adjacent reefs, or explore the 28,000ac El Yunque National Forest, which holds PR's only navigable river (accessible by canoe), Espiritu Santo, though hopefully your wild adventures don't end with you becoming one.Because they're feeling all new and generous, those who book a four-night stay can snag a luxury sedan lift from the airport, a gratis breakfast, welcome cocktails, and $300 in resort credit, though if your lady uses it to go la vida loca at the spa, she'll have a lot of 'splaining to do. That was good, right guys!?
