San Juan

Overview

Introduction

San Juan, Puerto Rico, with stunning beaches, is one of the busiest leisure and business travel destinations in the Caribbean. It is especially convenient for U.S. citizens, because they do not need a passport to go to Puerto Rico and the currency there is the U.S. dollar.

Old San Juan's walled enclave delights visitors with a treasure trove of Spanish colonial architecture. The venerable San Juan Cathedral, gray cobblestoned streets and pastel-colored buildings give the Puerto Rican city the glamorous look of a movie set. Visitors will find a deep respect for the past combined with passion for the trends of the present.

San Juan houses cultural attractions such as the stunning Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico, the state-of-the-art Coliseo de Puerto Rico that has welcomed major superstars and athletes, and a multimillion-dollar convention-center facility—the largest in the Caribbean. Historic neighborhoods offer sophisticated restaurants that combine Latin, Caribbean and Asian flavors. Cosmopolitan lounges, restaurants and nightclubs all around town fuel the city's reputation as a late-night haven for beautiful people.

Puerto Rico sustained severe damage during Hurricane Maria in September 2017. Recovery efforts may take years, but great strides have been made. Cruise operations have resumed, and air travel at Luis Munoz Marin International is functioning at its pre-hurricane level. Most hotels are now open, and newly renovated properties are opening steadily. Some larger luxury properties will continue to reopen into 2020.

Most touristic attractions are open, although a few may have reduced hours or limited access. Call ahead to confirm. All utilities—ATMs, hospitals, telephones, bus routes—are 100% operational.
