Welcome to a city over 500 years in the making. San Juan, the largest capital in the Caribbean, is a place of ancient magic, modern luxury and tropical splendor.
It’s hard not to be captivated by the historic treasures of majestic Old San Juan, the charming walled city with its imposing fortresses, colorful colonial architecture and numerous attractions. A short taxi ride from the old city lie the world-class boutiques, including Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Ferragamo, and restaurants of Condado, the inviting beaches and resorts of Ocean Park and Isla Verde and the bohemian neighborhood of Santurce. Event planners and business professionals come for the state-of-the-art convention center in Miramar and the financial district of Hato Rey. And the city is one of the world’s most popular cruise ports.
With so much to see and do, the city caters equally to history buffs, adventurers, shopaholics, honeymooners and indolent sunbathers. And when the sun goes down, San Juan sizzles with a sultry nightlife, casinos that stay open until the sun rises and hotels that keep the party going in their lobbies.
There’s a reason why close to five million visitors come here each year to explore and play in the Caribbean sun. Join them, and discover why San Juan is the cultural, social, artistic and historic heart of Puerto Rico.
