Founded by the Spanish in 1521, San Juan is the oldest city under U.S.
Visiting Waterskiing & Jetskiing and Fishing Charters & Tours will get you outdoors. Get a sense of the local culture at Paseo de la Princesa and The Poet's Passage. Venture out of the city with trips to Monkey Threads (in Luquillo), Kayaking & Canoeing (in Fajardo) and El Yunque National Forest (Yokahu Observation Tower & La Mina Falls). Next up on the itinerary: kick your exploration up a notch at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, pause for some serene contemplation at Parroquia Sagrado Corazon de Jesus, get outside with Oceania Watersports, and glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area.

Start your trip to San Juan by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.

Tampa, USA to San Juan is an approximately 6.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight; or do a combination of flight and car. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Tampa to San Juan.

With much of Culebra a nature refuge, the tropical island has been protected from overdevelopment, chain hotels, and the cruise set.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Zoni Beach and Carlos Rosario Beach. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Tamarindo Beach and Playa Punta Soldado Beach. The adventure continues: head off the coast to Culebrita Island, visit a coastal fixture at Culebrita Lighthouse, enjoy the sand and surf at Brava Beach, and see the interesting displays at Museo Historico de Culebra.

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.
Take a break from the city and head to Secret Beach and Stand-Up Paddleboarding. Step off the beaten path and head to La Chiva and Sun Bay. There's lots more to do: stroll through Caracas Beach, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, and take in the waterfront at Malecon.
