Old San Jan is the cultural center of Puerto Rico. Many of the island’s must-see sights are in Old San Juan; among them are these beautiful and beloved old churches. One is the second-oldest in the western hemisphere, another has two origin stories, both a tragic and triumphant version, and one is a truly excellent example of 16th-century Spanish Gothic architecture.
Discover Puerto Rico
Puerto Rico is the perfect island getaway. Sandy beaches, palm trees and tropical breezes make it a favorite for the sun and surf crowd. Rugged mountains and verdant rainforest attract adventure travelers, and lavish oceanside hotels embrace vacationers who crave romance and luxury.
As diverse as its landscapes are the cultures of Puerto Rico. Four hundred years of Spanish heritage has left its mark, giving the island an Old World elegance. African influences abound in the islands color, music, and cuisine, and everywhere you see the lasting influence of the indigenous Taino people far beyond ancient ruins and petroglyphs. Discover it all with the best of Puerto Rico or pick and choose your experiences with day trips from San Juan.
