City life meets island life in San Juan.

The colourful and historic old town of San Juan is perfect for meandering around the pastel-hued houses, heading out to the beaches or taking a few salsa lessons! As Puerto Rico's capital city, it's also it's oldest - first founded in 1521! Soak up the history in town or soak up the sun on one of the nearby beaches - the pace is slow, and the mojitos are the best way to beat the heat. Just an hour from San Juan you’ll find lush forests, waterfalls, National Parks, and there’s plenty of surfable coast too – just check out Playa Aviones or La Islita!
