Culebra

With much of Culebra a nature refuge, the tropical island has been protected from overdevelopment, chain hotels, and the cruise set.
Start off your visit on the 8th (Sun): enjoy the sand and surf at Playa Punta Soldado Beach and then enjoy the sand and surf at Flamenco Beach. On your second day here, kick back and relax at Tamarindo Beach, enjoy the sand and surf at Zoni Beach, and then visit a coastal fixture at Culebrita Lighthouse.

For more things to do, where to stay, maps, and tourist information, go to the Culebra trip planner.

San Juan

Founded by the Spanish in 1521, San Juan is the oldest city under U.S.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Old San Juan and San Juan National Historic Site. Escape the urban bustle at The El Yunque Rain Forest and Condado Beach. Change things up with a short trip to Caribbean Trading Company Store in Palmer (about 58 minutes away). There's much more to do: look for gifts at Puerto Rican Art & Crafts, get a sense of history and politics at The Capitol of Puerto Rico, get engrossed in the history at Cathedral of San Juan Bautista, and buy something for everyone on your list at Plaza Las Américas.

For maps, photos, ratings, and tourist information, read San Juan vacation planner.

San Juan is very close to Culebra. In October, daytime highs in San Juan are 38°C, while nighttime lows are 30°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 13th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
