Where to stay in San Juan

If you're looking for colonial-era lodgings, explore the streets of the old town area, where many grand buildings house guesthouses and hotels. The neighborhoods of Condado, Ocean Park, and Isla Verde contain the majority of beach resorts, with some glamorous and upscale options sitting alongside more laid-back and family-friendly ones. Rental bungalows just back from the beach, as well as side-street hostels, provide the city's budget-friendly places to stay.
