San Juan, Puerto Rico is a diverse metropolis that caters to both travelers and vacationers alike.
If you’re looking for sun, sand and umbrella drinks, than the high-end resorts of Condado and Isla Verde are right up your ally. They’re clean, accommodating and everybody speaks English, so you can vacation just like you’re anywhere else in the United States.
For those of you looking for a bit more culture (and sexiness), I suggest you sneak off the resort and head down to Old San Juan, where the beautiful cobblestone streets and colorful buildings will make you feel more like you’re in Cartagena than Cancun.
You can explore the Spanish Castle of San Cristobal (T2T Quickie) and el Castillo San Felipe del Morro during the day and stroll through the peaceful narrow streets and waterfront walkways by night.
My only concern is that Old San Juan will loose some of its Spanish influence as the United States continue affirming their presence on the island, so I suggest you fly down and experience this beautiful colonial city for yourself, before it’s too late.
With no passport required, Puerto Rico offers the most authentic Latin culture experience outside of Texas.
Don’t take my word for it that Old San Juan is a place worth visiting, check out these photos from my most recent visit and judge for yourself…
