Explore the salt-sprayed, sun-streaked El Morro fortress
These three square miles of cobblestone streets and restored Spanish colonial and Art Deco architecture has charmed visitors for centuries. With great shops, galleries, museums, restaurants and clubs, it's a glorious window to Puerto Rico's past, and a pulsing part of contemporary city life.
Hit the beach—you'll have your pick
Condado and Isla Verde are lined with wide, golden beaches and luxury resorts and condominiums, while Ocean Park is charming and low-key—think swaying palm trees, modern residences and guesthouses. Take a day trip on a plush catamaran, where you can snorkel in the emerald Caribbean Sea and stop for lunch in a deserted island paradise off the coast of Fajardo.
Cool off at the wondrous El Yunque rainforest
A place of waterfalls and surging mountain creeks, wild orchids and ferns, and towering bamboo and sierra palms. You can swim in a natural mountain stream pool, and adventurous types will want to hike six miles to the mountain's peak.
Drive over the mountains to the south side of the island
Ride a horse-drawn carriage and cool off with a tropical flavored ice cream on the Ponce's Plaza Las Delicias, at the heart of Ponce's renovated historic downtown with its striking Victorian firehouse and lion fountain. Take in a range of art, from Roy Lichtenstein to Sir Frederic Leighton, at the world-class Museo de Arte de Ponce nearby.
Kick back in comfort on Vieques
With no traffic lights or fast food restaurants, Vieques looks like Puerto Rico did 50 years ago, but now has chic hotels and guest houses. The magic continues during a nighttime kayak trip to Mosquito Bay, whose waters glow on moonless nights – the result of tiny, rare bioluminescent organisms which feed on the mangroves lining its shore.
