Founded by the Spanish in 1521, San Juan is the oldest city under U.S.
Change things up with a short trip to El Yunque Rain Forest in El Yunque National Forest (about 1h 10 min away). There's lots more to do: wander the streets of Old San Juan, make a trip to Calle del Cristo, pause for some serene contemplation at Catedral Metropolitana Basilica de San Juan Bautista, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Sitio Histórico de San Juan.

To see more things to do, photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the San Juan tour itinerary site .

Newark, USA to San Juan is an approximately 6.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight; or do a combination of flight and car. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Newark to San Juan. Traveling from Newark in December, expect San Juan to be much hotter, temps between 85°F and 75°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
