San Juan

San Juan ©
Founded by the Spanish in 1521, San Juan is the oldest city under U.S.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near San Juan: Scuba & Snorkeling (in Fajardo) and El Yunque Rain Forest (in El Yunque National Forest). And it doesn't end there: scramble along the landscape with a canyoning and rapelling tour, tour the pleasant surroundings at Condado Beach, appreciate the history behind Paseo de los Presidentes, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Old San Juan.

Plan my San Juan trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

San Francisco, USA to San Juan is an approximately 12.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and car; or do a combination of flight and shuttle. The time zone changes from Pacific Standard Time to Atlantic Standard Time, which is usually a 4 hour difference. In December, San Juan is much warmer than San Francisco - with highs of 85°F and lows of 75°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 24th (Tue) early enough to catch the flight to Culebra.
