San Juan

— 3 nights

Walled City

Founded by the Spanish in 1521, San Juan is the oldest city under U.S. jurisdiction and one of the oldest in the Americas.
Go for a jaunt from San Juan to El Yunque National Forest to see El Yunque Rain Forest about 1h 10 min away. There's still lots to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Old San Juan, contemplate the long history of Sitio Histórico de San Juan, let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, and brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Casa Bacardi Puerto Rico.
