Founded by the Spanish in 1521, San Juan is the oldest city under U.S.
Bring the kids along to Luquillo Beach and Condado Beach. Get out of town with these interesting San Juan side-trips: Carabali Rainforest Park (in Luquillo), El Yunque Rain Forest (in El Yunque National Forest) and Trollbeads (in Canovanas). There's still lots to do: get to know the fascinating history of Sitio Histórico de San Juan, pause for some serene contemplation at Catedral Metropolitana Basilica de San Juan Bautista, make a trip to Plaza San Juan Bautista, and sample the fine beverages at Casa Bacardi Puerto Rico.

To find photos, where to stay, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read our San Juan trip planner.

New York City, USA to San Juan is an approximately 7- 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 New York City to San Juan. Traveling from New York City in July, you can expect nighttime temperatures to be somewhat warmer in San Juan, with lows of 78°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Sun) to allow enough time to fly to Culebra.
