San Juan, Puerto Rico
San Juan is one of the biggest natural harbors in the Caribbean and is the second oldest city in the Americas. This beautiful city, called "La Ciudad Amurallada," was founded in 1521. Cobblestone streets, hanging balconies, chapels and many plazas characterize the historic end of the city, while modern amenities and high-rise hotels have sprung up on the more developed beachfront.
Old San Juan
A residential and commercial district, with distinctive cobbled streets of adoquine, a blue stone cast from furnace slag. Best explored on foot, this neighborhood is close to being 500 years old, and includes 16th and 17th century Spanish colonial buildings.
El Yunque National Forest
This 28,000-acre forest preserve gets 120 inches of rain a year, and is home to more than 250 species of trees. Learn about the ecosystem at the El Portal Tropical Forest Center, or enjoy the view from the Yokahu Observation Tower.
New San Juan
