Founded by the Spanish in 1521, San Juan is the oldest city under U.S.
Take a break from San Juan with a short trip to El Yunque Rain Forest in El Yunque National Forest, about 1h 10 min away. The adventure continues: stop by Old San Juan, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Casa Bacardi Puerto Rico, get interesting insight from Tours, and get to know the fascinating history of Sitio Histórico de San Juan.

To see reviews, traveler tips, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our San Juan holiday site.

Houston, USA to San Juan is an approximately 8- hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and car. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from Houston to San Juan due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Houston in December, plan for somewhat warmer days and much warmer nights in San Juan: temperatures range from 85°F by day to 75°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Fri) to allow enough time to fly to Culebra.

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.
Isla de Vieques is known for nature, beaches, and wildlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: explore the activities along Sun Bay Beach, enjoy the sand and surf at La Chiva, stroll through Vieques National Wildlife Refuge, and take a leisurely stroll along Malecon.

To see maps, ratings, more things to do, and more tourist information, use the Isla de Vieques itinerary planning website.
