Carolina

Carolina ©
Known as the "Land of Giants" in honor of its celebrated residents--including poet Julia de Burgos and baseball player Roberto Clemente--Carolina makes a living as both an industrial center and a hub of tourism.
Visit Condado Beach and Luquillo Beach for some beach relaxation. Get in touch with nature at El Yunque Rain Forest and Kayaking & Canoeing. The adventure continues: steep yourself in history at Sitio Histórico de San Juan, get some thrills out on the water with a waterskiing or jet-skiing adventure, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Catedral Metropolitana Basilica de San Juan Bautista.

Plan my day in Carolina using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Newark, USA to Carolina is an approximately 7.5-hour combination of car and flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Newark to Carolina. Plan for much warmer temperatures traveling from Newark in April, with highs in Carolina at 87°F and lows at 75°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Sat) early enough to travel to Isla de Vieques.

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.
Step out of the city life by going to Sun Bay Beach and Caracas Beach. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at La Chiva and Media Luna Beach. Next up on the itinerary: make a trip to Puerto Ferro Lighthouse and stop by Isla Vida.
