Where to go when we disembark from San Juan

Hopefully I will book a cruise out of Puerto Rico soon, w/i the next few days. My question is where is a good place to go post cruise for a few days. We have already seen San Juan so that is out. We would prefer somewhere with a relatively short flight from SJU and have already been to St. Thomas and the DR so where else can we go? I was thinking about the BVI. Any ideas? Thank you. Larry

once you're in san juan almost every island is a quick flight. so i'd be leaning towards someplace the cruise is not going.
what would you like to do on this island and an idea of your budget should get you lots of very specific suggestions.
casinos & nightlife or hang in the sun all day? snorkel, dive, golf, tennis, quiet island or busy,lush or arid, etc. the more details the better.

I'd suggest you simply go to Vieques or Culebra, either a short flight from SJU. If you want beautiful beaches and good snorkeling and a laid-back vibe, both of these islands is great if you just want to relax.

Doug that is a good idea. We looked at flight times for our return if we went elsewhere and with layovers we found times in the 8 hr. range. we sort of feel like a short one this time so it'll be either a different part of PR or one of her out islands.

I agree with the suggestion for Culebra and Vieques. Both are laid back, but culebra is more so...Vieques has the bio bay which is a "not to miss"
have fun

BVIs are a good choice and nothing like the USVIs. It's about a 40 minute flight from SJU and there's plenty of neat places to stay, beaches to see, and things to do.

I agree with Vieques. It is easy to get to and a restful, off-the-beaten trail place with lovely beaches, great biobay experiences and good local restaurants. We just returned!
