Built in the 16th century, Castillo San Felipe del Morro is a tower on the northwestern point of San Juan. It was designed to defend San Juan’s port and has been an integral part of their military history. It was declared a World Heritage Site by the United Nations in 1983. There is a walk next to the ocean that guests can do which goes from El Morro to the gates of San Juan. It is open every day from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
El Yunque National Forest is the only tropical rainforest in the United States. It has over 200 species of flora with beautiful hiking trails, waterfalls, and natural swimming holes. Tours can be booked online through a number of tourism companies in Puerto Rico.
Puerto Rico is home to the Bacardi rum distillery. They offer tours, mixology classes, tastings, and have an outdoor patio. The rum distillery is about a 25 minute drive from San Juan or guests can take a 10 minute ferry ride out of Old San Juan.
A restaurant located in Old San Juan. They are known as the birthplace of the Pina Colada and serve delicious Puerto Rican food.
Kiosks along the beach where you can get the best no-frills puerto rican food from a variety of local vendors and eat them on the beach.
The best bar (in my opinion) in Old San Juan for guests interested in nightlife. There are many different inter-connected rooms that all have a different vibe. It was also the filming place for the music video "Despacito" (non Justin Bieber version).
