Step out of San Juan with an excursion to El Yunque Rain Forest in El Yunque National Forest--about 1h 10 min away. There's still lots to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Old San Juan, skim along the rocks with a canyoning and rapelling tour, take an in-depth tour of Cathedral of San Juan Bautista, and kick back and relax at Condado Beach.
