Founded by the Spanish in 1521, San Juan is the oldest city under U.S.
Step out of the city life by going to El Yunque Rain Forest and Luquillo Beach. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Coqui International and Plaza las Americas. Step out of San Juan to go to Loiza and see Estudio de Arte Samuel Lind, which is approximately 48 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: enjoy the sand and surf at Condado Beach, get some fabulous bargains at Coach Outlet Store, don't miss a visit to Plaza de la Catedral, and take in the exciting artwork at The Poet's Passage.

Norfolk, USA to San Juan is an approximately 6.5-hour flight. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Norfolk to San Juan due to the time zone difference. Plan for much hotter temperatures traveling from Norfolk in March, with highs in San Juan at 85°F and lows at 73°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 25th (Mon) early enough to catch the flight to 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 26th (Tue): tour the pleasant surroundings at Flamenco Beach and then tour the pleasant surroundings at Playa Punta Soldado Beach. On your second day here, tour the pleasant surroundings at Carlos Rosario Beach, look for gifts at Zinkowski Art Studio, then get lost in a book at Culebra Public Library, and finally kick back and relax at Zoni Beach.

You can plan Culebra trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

Isla de Vieques

Isla de Vieques ©
For sixty years until 2003, most of the Isla de Vieques was closed off to the public, with the US Navy using the island's beaches and surrounding waters for drills and testing of new military machinery, such as bombs.
Shop till you drop at Siddhia Hutchinson Fine Art Gallery and Fish Market. Get outdoors at Sun Bay and Media Luna Beach. And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at La Chiva, look for gifts at Isla Vida, enjoy the sand and surf at Secret Beach, and view the masterpieces at Gallery Galleon.

Do a combination of flight and car from Culebra to Isla de Vieques in 2.5 hours. Alternatively, you can ride a ferry. In March, plan for daily highs up to 84°F, and evening lows to 72°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 31st (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
