With much of Culebra a nature refuge, the tropical island has been protected from overdevelopment, chain hotels, and the cruise set.
On the 20th (Thu), stroll through Playa Punta Soldado Beach and then enjoy the sand and surf at Flamenco Beach. Keep things going the next day: visit a coastal fixture at Culebrita Lighthouse, then head off the coast to Culebrita Island, and then enjoy the sand and surf at Zoni Beach.

Founded by the Spanish in 1521, San Juan is the oldest city under U.S.
Take a break from the city and head to El Yunque Rain Forest and Luquillo Beach. Get a sense of the local culture at Old San Juan and Museo de Arte de Ponce. Step out of San Juan with an excursion to Scuba & Snorkeling in Fajardo--about 1h 15 min away. There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of San Juan National Historic Site, pause for some photo ops at Paseo de los Presidentes, appreciate the extensive heritage of Paseo de la Princesa, and scramble along the landscape with a canyoning and rapelling tour.

For reviews, more things to do, ratings, and other tourist information, read our San Juan travel itinerary planner.
