Founded by the Spanish in 1521, San Juan is the oldest city under U.S.
Old San Juan and San Juan National Historic Site will appeal to history buffs. You'll discover tucked-away gems like La Chiva and Paseo de la Princesa. Venture out of the city with trips to Malecon (in Esperanza), El Yunque National Forest (El Yunque Rain Forest & Yokahu Observation Tower) and Isla de Vieques (Stand-Up Paddleboarding, Caracas Beach, & more). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Tamarindo Beach, make a trip to San Juan Gate, stroll the grounds of San Juan Cemetery, and sample the fine beverages at Casa Bacardi Visitor Center.
