Founded by the Spanish in 1521, San Juan is the oldest city under U.S.
Take a break from San Juan with a short trip to El Yunque Rain Forest in El Yunque National Forest, about 1h 10 min away. There's much more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Old San Juan, pause for some photo ops at Paseo de los Presidentes, scramble along the landscape with a canyoning and rapelling tour, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Condado Beach.

To plan San Juan vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Newark, USA to San Juan is an approximately 6.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight; or do a combination of flight and car. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Newark to San Juan. Traveling from Newark in August, plan for somewhat warmer nights in San Juan, with lows around 78°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 1st (Sun) so you can travel to Isla de Vieques.
