Founded by the Spanish in 1521, San Juan is the oldest city under U.S.
Visiting El Yunque Rain Forest and Pine Grove Beach will get you outdoors. Your inner history buff will appreciate Old San Juan and La Fortaleza - Palacio de Santa Catalina. There's more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of San Juan National Historic Site and get engrossed in the history at Cathedral of San Juan Bautista.

For other places to visit, ratings, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the San Juan trip planning tool .

Washington DC, USA to San Juan is an approximately 8-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and car. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Washington DC to San Juan due to the time zone difference. In July, daily temperatures in San Juan can reach 89°F, while at night they dip to 78°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel to Isla de Vieques.

Isla de Vieques

Isla de Vieques ©
For sixty years until 2003, most of the Isla de Vieques was closed off to the public, with the US Navy using the island's beaches and surrounding waters for drills and testing of new military machinery, such as bombs.
You've now added Bioluminescent (Mosquito) Bay to your itinerary. Visit Isabel Segunda and Puerto Ferro Lighthouse for their historical value. You'll get in some beach time at Sun Bay and Caracas Beach. The adventure continues: kick back and relax at Blue Beach.

Isla de Vieques is very close to San Juan. In July, plan for daily highs up to 88°F, and evening lows to 78°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 20th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
