2 days in San Juan

My boyfriend and I are going to san juan on 10/15 for 2 days. we have rented a car and in addition to the beach and casino, we wanted to see a few sights to make our vacation (first vacation together!) complete. Any suggestions on things we should not miss? and has anyone stayed at the intercontinental? is it a good hotel? thanks

Intercontinental is a good hotel - right on Isla Verde beach, nice pool and common area, small balconies, room is adequate. It appears that you are getting there on a Saturday night. I suggest that you walk over to the El San Juan (next door to the Intercontinental) - it is a very popular spot on weekends. It's hard to do too much in 2 days but I would also suggest Old San Juan - day for shopping and sightseeing, night for dinner and drinks.

Hello Heather! Try to catch the ferry from the Conquistador resort in Fajardo to Culebra island and in Culebra you MUST visit FLAMENCO BEACH. I would rate Flamenco as one of the top 2 beaches in all of PR. I have lived for 11 years in PR. Also Condado Beach is awesome!! Make sure you see Flam,enco Beach in Culebra islamnd though. There are wonderful snorkeling beaches all over Culebra island also. Hop this hrelps

Hi Heather,

I have to agree with Tom on the El San Juan (Wyndham property).

We were in Puerto Rico last Thursday afternoon til Friday morning, due to a flight delay. We took a taxi to the El San Juan and had a blast! The place is electric!!
