Founded by the Spanish in 1521, San Juan is the oldest city under U.S.
Step out of San Juan to go to El Yunque National Forest and see El Yunque Rain Forest, which is approximately 1h 10 min away. There's still lots to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Old San Juan, sample the fine beverages at Casa Bacardi, appreciate the history behind Paseo de los Presidentes, and contemplate the long history of Sitio Histórico de San Juan.
