Founded by the Spanish in 1521, San Juan is the oldest city under U.S.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Santa Maria Magdalena de Pazzis Cemetery and Yokahu Observation Tower. Get some cultural insight at Paseo de la Princesa and Walter Otero Contemporary Art. You'll find plenty of places to visit near San Juan: Fishing Charters & Tours (in Fajardo), Cascada La Mina (La Mina Falls) (in El Yunque National Forest) and Zipline (in Rio Grande).

Ponce is both a city and a municipality in the southern part of Puerto Rico. Kick off your visit on the 24th (Wed): don't miss a visit to Casa Wiechers-Villaronga and then admire the masterpieces at Museo de Arte de Ponce. Keep things going the next day: experience rural life at Hacienda Buena Vista, browse the exhibits of El Museo Castillo Serralles, then examine the collection at Parque de Bombas, and finally take in the spiritual surroundings of Cathedral of our Lady of Guadaloupe.

Plan my Ponce trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

A seaside playground in the Caribbean, Rincon was a small agricultural and fishing town until it hosted the 1968 World Surfing Championship.

Isla de Vieques

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.
Fortin Conde de Mirasol Museum and Siddhia Hutchinson Fine Art Gallery are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Caracas Beach and La Chiva. The adventure continues: glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, take a leisurely stroll along Malecon, make a trip to Puerto Ferro Lighthouse, and contemplate the waterfront views at Sun Bay Beach.
