Default Things to do in San Juan PR

fishing is blown out.

went to the rain forest, Bacardi factory, old San Juan fort, snorkeled and saw the Sherman tanks on the beach. What else am I missing?

The cemetery in Old San Juan is pretty cool. Very detailed and ornate marble carvings there.

fly over to culebra or vieques

the beaches there are much nicer, and not crowded

drive over by arecibo and check out the cuevas del indio

kioskos in luquillo

tarpon fishing in the lagoon

what are your interests?

Haven't been there in many years but we used to make a point of eating at El Tenedor steak house, which was in Juncos I think. It was a converted sugar mill and food was exceptional.

How much longer will you be there?

Caverns in Camuy, super cool

Arecibo antennae

if you’re in for a road trip, the middle of the island is beautiful. Many, many restaurants. El Meson de Melquiades in Cayey is awesome. Nice ride through the mountains and the food and views are great.

Have fun

I think they camuy caverns may still be closed, you better check before making that drive.

The Black Angus, oops-showing my age. A drive up through the rainforest is interesting although I don't know what the roads are like after the hurricane
