San Juan is famous for its colonial-era artifacts and historic buildings. It has been a showcase of the culture of its occupants since its establishment in 1521. Attractions include its buzzing nightlife and 16th-century landmarks such as the La Fortazela and El Morro fortresses. You can visit the Castle of San Cristónal, stroll through the old town, sunbathe on the beach or surf in the ocean.
A package holiday is an ideal way to enjoy your San Juan vacation because it cuts costs and guarantees good accommodation. You save money which you can use to pay for car hire among other things.
The ideal time to visit is from mid-April to June. After this the rainy season makes favorable weather more uncertain. The winter months are a little less hot, but not by much.
