Attractions like Condado Beach and Luquillo Beach make great kid-friendly stops. Step out of San Juan with an excursion to El Yunque Rain Forest in El Yunque National Forest--about 1h 10 min away. There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Ocean Park Beach, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Catedral Metropolitana Basilica de San Juan Bautista, skim along the rocks with a canyoning and rapelling tour, and get some thrills out on the water with a waterskiing or jet-skiing adventure.
