Details: San Juan guided sightseeing tour
Jump into the buzzing capital of Puerto Rico. San Juan’s 16th-century historic district offers up a taste of Renaissance Spain, while the modern hotels, busy cafés, and traffic-packed streets in the new sections give the city a distinctly 21st-century energy. Start your invasion at El Morro, one of the oldest standing forts in the Caribbean. The fort rises 140 feet above the sea and contains ramparts, tunnels, and dungeons open for exploration. Thick city walls connect this fort with the similar fortifications of El Castillo San Cristobal and La Fortaleza, and the heavy wooden doors of the San Juan Gate were once the only way for visitors to pass into the heavily fortified city. See the less militaristic side of colonial life at the Casa Blanca, an elaborate house originally built for town founder Ponce de Leon. The beautiful 16th-century Catedral de San Juan soars up nearby. Find harmony at the Pablo Casals museum, dedicated to the world-famous cellist (and containing a rather eerie cast of his hands), and relaxation at the Condado, San Juan’s answer to Miami Beach.
