San Juan, Puerto Rico, also known as La Ciudad Amurallada, or the walled city, is a beautiful destination for the perfect getaway filled with beaches, gambling, fortress museums, and world-class resorts.
Plaza de Armas is old San Juan’s main square, and has four large statues to represent each of the seasons. Meet here to socialize with the locals or to meet up with friends for a taste of Puerto Rico’s world-famous coffee. During the hot months of summer, be sure to stroll around Plaza de Hostos near Las Casitas for a refreshing snow cone topped with fruit syrup, known locally as piragüeros. Take in views of the ocean and the surrounding mountains at Parque de las Palomas, or Pigeon Park, which is much more inviting than it sounds.
Colonial churches and homes dating back to the 16th and 17th centuries still stand in old San Juan, alongside casinos and beaches. The charming city stretches for seven blocks on blue cobble streets filled with colorful homes, bakeries with freshly baked goods, and historic statues, creating a fun juxtaposition of history and new world.
If you’re looking for adventure, take a zip-line tour through the Puerto Rican mountainside or go snorkeling and scuba diving in the crystal clear blue water! Every water sport imaginable can be found here, and entertainment options are abundant every night of the week throughout the entire town.
For adventure and relaxation in a destination that is both old and new, San Juan wins by a landslide.
