August trip to Puerto Rico - advice?

Jump to last reply

My family of 3 (parents and our 8 year old son) is planning August trip to Puerto Rico. I know August is not the best time of year given hurricane season but our vacation times are limited so we are going for it with trip insurance. I am considering splitting between the Ritz and El Con over about 12 days. We plan to explore Old San Juan, the rain forest, bio bay, caves and the Obervatory. Lots of beach, explore interesting shops and museums, eat and eat, and at least a day at the El Con waterpark.

We are from California, like exploring, cultural stuff and anything science related. For more info about us - we love traveling, not outrageously outdoorsy, for islands we prefer Oahu to other islands in Hawaii because we love going to Pearl Harbor and hanging out on Waikiki beach and then spending time on the quieter side of the island too.

How does all of that sound to seasoned Puerto Rico travelers? Should we add another hotel? I also thought we could do the first few days staying in Old San Juan so we can wake-up and explore on foot. Add El Convento for a few days? Any special places we should not miss? Should we spend time on Vieques or Calebra? Is the bio bay fine near Fajardo or should we definately go to Vieques for that?

Any advice appreciated. Thanks!
