Founded by the Spanish in 1521, San Juan is the oldest city under U.S.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at La Guancha and Carolina Beach. Museum-lovers will get to explore Museo de Arte de Ponce and Estudio de Arte Samuel Lind. Venture out of the city with trips to The El Yunque Rain Forest (in El Yunque National Forest) and Caribbean Trading Company Store (in Palmer). There's still lots to do: get to know the fascinating history of Old San Juan, step off the mainland to explore Palomino Island, get engrossed in the history at Cathedral of San Juan Bautista, and steep yourself in history at San Juan National Historic Site.

For more things to do, reviews, traveler tips, and other tourist information, read San Juan itinerary maker.

San Diego, USA to San Juan is an approximately 14-hour flight. You'll lose 4 hours traveling from San Diego to San Juan due to the time zone difference. Expect somewhat warmer temperatures when traveling from San Diego in July; daily highs in San Juan reach 89°F and lows reach 78°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 9th (Sun) to allow time to travel to 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.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Blue Beach and Sun Bay. Take a break from the city and head to Caracas Beach and Stand-Up Paddleboarding. There's lots more to do: take in the exciting artwork at Gallery Galleon, enjoy the sea views from Puerto Ferro Lighthouse, and get engrossed in the history at Fortin Conde de Mirasol Museum.
