Top Reasons to Go to San Juan

Take a stroll: Wander the cobblestone streets of Old San Juan—the fortifications and governor's mansion are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Climb a battlement: Explore Castillo San Felipe del Morro, the 16th-century fortress that dominates the waterfront; rangers provide a fascinating insight.

Shop: Head to Condado's Avenida Ashford, where you'll find most of the city's designer boutiques, including that of Nono Maldonado, one of the island's homegrown design talents.

Catch some rays: Balneario de Carolina, at the eastern tip of Isla Verde, is San Juan's best beach. Take time to parasail.

Dine on the strip: Dine at Marmalade, just one of many stellar restaurants along the eastern end of Calle Fortaleza, a strip so trendy that locals call it "SoFo."
