Pop culture meets tradition in this uniquely diverse city where funky restaurants and glamorous casinos nestle comfortably next to 15th-century Spanish forts and people mingle freely at all hours of night or day. Whether you’re enjoy hiking or diving, fishing or sailing, nature walks or history tours, San Juan is bound to captivate you.

Day 1: Tour around Town

Begin your Puerto Rican Adventure with the Rum Distillery and Old San Juan Half-Day Tour. You'll enjoy a tour of the Bacardi rum factory which is one of the largest in the world. Not only will you get a chance to view the Bacardi Museum you'll also sample some of Bacardi's delicious rum products. You'll then head out on a tour of the historic city of Old San Juan. Established in 1513, it is one of the oldest cities in the New World. As you stroll down the cobblestone streets visiting museums, churches, and forts be sure to take in the well preserved Spanish Colonial architecture.

Day 2: Step Out

Should you feel like venturing outside of San Juan, try the Ponce The Pearl City Tour. Ponce is known as the pearl of the south due to its unique beauty and grandeur and is home to some of Puerto Rico’s most stately mansions. You will also visit Tibes Indian Ceremonial Park which boasts many artifacts used by the island’s first inhabitants, as well as festival and burial grounds. The tour concludes with a visit to Seralles Castle. If you would rather spend your day on a carefree adventure take a leisurely catamaran trip to the deserted island of Icacos on the San Juan Snorkel and Picnic Cruise.

Day 3: Beaches and Nature Walks

From sunny beaches to mystical rainforests, the El Yunque Rainforest and Luquillo Beach Tour has something for everyone. The tour begins on the soft golden sands of Luquillo beach. Swim in the serene waters; work on your tan with a little sun worshiping, or lounge under one of the many coconut palms that adorn the beach. After a relaxing morning on the beach you will then journey to the sub tropical rainforest of El Yunque meaning “forest of clouds”. With over 250 species of plants and animals including the endangered Puerto Rican Parrot, nature lovers are sure to delight in the untouched beauty of El Yunque.
