San Juan

San Juan ©
Founded by the Spanish in 1521, San Juan is the oldest city under U.S.
Explore San Juan's surroundings by going to El Yunque Rain Forest (in El Yunque National Forest), Luquillo Beach (in Luquillo) and Scuba & Snorkeling (in Fajardo). There's still lots to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Old San Juan, make a trip to Plaza de la Catedral, shake up your sightseeing with a climbing tour, and pause for some photo ops at Paseo de los Presidentes.

To see traveler tips, where to stay, maps, and tourist information, go to the San Juan trip itinerary planner.

Phoenix, USA to San Juan is an approximately 10.5- hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and car. The time zone changes from Mountain Standard Time (MST) to Atlantic Standard Time (AST), which is usually a 3 hour difference. While traveling from Phoenix, expect a bit cooler days and about the same nights in San Juan, ranging from highs of 89°F to lows of 78°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Sat) to allow time to fly to Culebra.

With much of Culebra a nature refuge, the tropical island has been protected from overdevelopment, chain hotels, and the cruise set.
On the 8th (Sat), step off the mainland to explore Culebrita Island, then enjoy the sand and surf at Zoni Beach, and then stop by Zinkowski Art Studio. Here are some ideas for day two: visit a coastal fixture at Culebrita Lighthouse and then enjoy the sand and surf at Flamenco Beach.

To see where to stay and more tourist information, read our Culebra road trip app.

Culebra is very close to San Juan. In June, plan for daily highs up to 89°F, and evening lows to 79°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 9th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
