A tropical escape without a passport? Puerto Rico’s St. Regis Beach Resort might feel a world away, but this luxurious locale (and its 2-mile, white-sand beach) is just a few hours from the States. If you can peel yourself off your private cabana’s cushy chaise lounge, try kayaking on the Espiritu Santo River or go shopping in historic Old San Juan. Don’t worry if you can’t do it all – this paradise is so close to home, you’re sure to come back.
