You know you’re ready to visit San Juan, but there are many hotels to choose from that it can be hard to narrow down the list! Finding a hotel deal in San Juan and renting a car will allow you the freedom for easy day trips to other parts of the island. Some of our favorite hotels include the San Juan Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino or the stunning La Concha, A Renaissance Resort. You can also take a short flight from San Juan over to the Spanish Virgin Islands for a night or two. San Juan offers buses, trolleys and taxis to get around and even though the main language is Spanish, you’ll find more English in the touristy areas.

Old San Juan is beautiful and offers plenty of walking and site seeing and is not to be missed. El Castillo San Felipe del Morro, a 16th century citadel that’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site is just one of the historical marvels in San Juan. Luquillo or Carolina Beach offer up a relaxing setting to dive into the ocean or lay out and soak in some rays. The Bacardi Rum Distillery Tour is also there, so you can sip and imbibe while on a tour of one of those iconic distilleries in the world.

The possibilities for adventure, relaxation, culture and gastronomy abound in this beautiful city. Whether it’s your first Caribbean vacation or you’re a pro, this city will delight and the whole country offers the convenience to American travelers to not worry about bringing the passport or changing out the currency.
