San Juan ©
Founded by the Spanish in 1521, San Juan is the oldest city under U.S.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Sitio Histórico de San Juan and Catedral Metropolitana Basilica de San Juan Bautista. When in San Juan, make a side trip to see El Yunque Rain Forest in El Yunque National Forest, approximately El Yunque National Forest away. There's much more to do: get to know the fascinating history of Old San Juan, make a trip to Plaza de la Catedral, scramble along the landscape with a canyoning and rapelling tour, and appreciate the history behind Paseo de los Presidentes.

To see photos, where to stay, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the San Juan trip itinerary website.

New York City, USA to San Juan is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from New York City to San Juan. Traveling from New York City in December, expect San Juan to be much warmer, temps between °F and °F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Sun) early enough to travel to 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.
Family-friendly places like Sun Bay Beach and Vieques National Wildlife Refuge will thrill your kids. There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Media Luna Beach, explore the ancient world of El Hombre de Puerto Ferro, take a leisurely stroll along Malecon, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Caracas Beach.
