If you seek an alternative to the hectic urban environs of San Juan, head to the pristine coastal towns and charming inland locales found along Puerto Rico's northeast corridor. Easily reached by car, El Yunque and northeast Puerto Rico are convenient enough for a quick day trip but beg exploration of at least two days. Kayak the lagoon in Piñones, take a surf lesson in Luquillo, sunbathe at Seven Seas Beach in Fajardo, horseback ride in the foothills of El Yunque—the list of exciting and/or relaxing activities in this region goes on and on.
