Founded by the Spanish in 1521, San Juan is the oldest city under U.S.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Old San Juan and Walter Otero Contemporary Art. Family-friendly places like Condado Beach and Luquillo Beach will thrill your kids. Change things up with these side-trips from San Juan: El Yunque Rain Forest (in El Yunque National Forest) and Museo del Tabaco Caguas (in Caguas). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Sitio Histórico de San Juan, make a trip to Plaza de la Catedral, sample the fine beverages at Casa Bacardi, and pause for some serene contemplation at Catedral Metropolitana Basilica de San Juan Bautista.

For other places to visit, where to stay, photos, and other tourist information, go to the San Juan trip itinerary maker app .
