Founded by the Spanish in 1521, San Juan is the oldest city under U.S.
Take a break from the city and head to Balneario Luquillo and Kayaking & Canoeing. Step off the beaten path and head to Ocean Park Beach and Zipline. Explore San Juan's surroundings by going to Waterskiing & Jetskiing (in Fajardo), Playa Mar Chiquita (in Manati) and El Yunque National Forest (El Yunque Rain Forest, La Mina Falls, & more). There's still lots to do: Head underground at Aventura Cueva Ventana, enjoy the sand and surf at Carolina Beach, glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, and ponder the world of politics at The Capitol of Puerto Rico.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Luis Munoz Marin International Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 88°F, and evening lows to 76°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Sat) so you can travel back home.
