Founded by the Spanish in 1521, San Juan is the oldest city under U.S.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes La Parguera. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Plazuela La Rogativa and Condado Lagoon. Venture out of the city with trips to Ponce (Tibes Indigenous Ceremonial Center & Hacienda Buena Vista). And it doesn't end there: take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour, get to know the fascinating history of Old San Juan, walk around Plaza Ventana del Mar, and get a taste of local nightlife at Casa Melaza Rum Boutique.

To see reviews, other places to visit, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the San Juan online day trip planner .

Baltimore, USA to San Juan is an approximately 7-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Baltimore to San Juan due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Baltimore in August, plan for a bit warmer nights in San Juan, with lows around 78°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Wed) early enough to fly to Culebra.

On your second day here, stroll through Culebra National Wildlife, then enjoy the sea views from Culebrita Lighthouse, then look for gifts at Zinkowski Art Studio, and finally get lost in a book at Culebra Public Library.
