San Juan

— 2 nights

Walled City

Founded by the Spanish in 1521, San Juan is the oldest city under U.S.
Visiting El Yunque Rain Forest and Zipline will get you outdoors. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Paseo de la Princesa and Santa Maria Magdalena de Pazzis Cemetery. There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Old San Juan, get a sense of history and politics at The Capitol of Puerto Rico, and pause for some photo ops at Paseo de los Presidentes.

To find where to stay, maps, reviews, and more tourist information, go to the San Juan online tour itinerary planner.
