Kids will appreciate attractions like Sitio Histórico de San Juan and Condado Beach. Change things up with a short trip to El Yunque Rain Forest in El Yunque National Forest (about 1h 10 min away). Next up on the itinerary: visit Old San Juan, let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, appreciate the history behind Paseo de los Presidentes, and sample the fine beverages at Casa Bacardi Puerto Rico.
