Founded by the Spanish in 1521, San Juan is the oldest city under U.S.
Step out of San Juan to go to El Yunque National Forest and see El Yunque Rain Forest, which is approximately 1h 10 min away. There's much more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Old San Juan, take an in-depth tour of Cathedral of San Juan Bautista, make a trip to Paseo de la Princesa, and stop by Puerto Rican Art & Crafts.

For ratings, where to stay, reviews, and more tourist information, read San Juan route maker .

Columbus, USA to San Juan is an approximately 27-hour travel. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Columbus to San Juan. Plan for a bit warmer temperatures traveling from Columbus in April, with highs in San Juan at 87°F and lows at 75°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Sat) so you can fly to Culebra.
