San Juan

Founded by the Spanish in 1521, San Juan is the oldest city under U.S.
La Muralla and Holocaust Memorial Monument will appeal to history buffs. Kids will appreciate attractions like Nature & Wildlife Tours and La Fortaleza - Palacio de Santa Catalina. Step out of San Juan to go to Luquillo and see Playa La Pared, which is approximately 46 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: pause for some photo ops at Plazuela La Rogativa, head outdoors with Ruta Nativa, ponder the design of Roots Fountain, and don't miss a visit to The Franciscan Chapel.

To find reviews, photos, maps, and other tourist information, go to the San Juan trip planner.
