San Juan, Puerto Rico, probably isn’t at the top of lists for travelers looking for a beach destination. But ever since some friends honeymooned in Puerto Rico several years ago, the island has been in the back of my mind as a place I wanted to visit. This summer, when trying to decide on a family beach destination, it seemed like the right time to give Puerto Rico a try. These five reasons to visit San Juan, Puerto Rico might have you considering it, too.
Puerto Rico is a little bit of the Caribbean, a dash of old Spain, a little bit of America and lots of salsa goodness. Yes, Puerto Rico is technically part of the United States, but it’s also a world away. On one hand walking the streets of Old San Juan you feel like you’re in a different country, a place where the Caribbean rules in all its color. But on the other hand, it felt so close to home. Old San Juan, Puerto Rico, is a world that is alive with color and fun.
