24 Hours in San Juan, Puerto Rico

Hello Everyone! I just realized that it’s been almost a month since I last posted! Of course there is no excuse for leaving you guys hanging, but as I mentioned in my last post, I recently moved to Texas, then I was on a mission trip in Puerto Rico. Don’t worry because I have a TON of fun things planned for the next few months!

Going to Puerto Rico was very eye opening, and I am going to tell you all about the missions part of it in a separate post, just because there was SO MUCH that happened! Are you ready to discover where to go in San Juan? Well buckle up and LET’S GO!

What to See

Old San Juan

Not only is Old San Juan BEAUTIFUL, it’s also full of many fun shops and restaurants. So go park your car, put on your walking shoes, and go explore!

Castillo de San Cristóbal

This is SUCH a beautiful fort, with an AMAZING view of San Juan. There are many things to explore here, and if I had more time I could have spent HOURS!

Escambron Beach

This is such a BEAUTIFUL beach with the calmest, clearest waters I’ve ever seen. Not only that, but it’s also pretty much deserted most of the time, so you can grab a shady spot underneath a palm tree, kick back, and relax!

Parque Nacional Balneario Manuel Morales

Also a STUNNING beach, this one has bigger waves, and it was also just a short walk from our hotel!

Where to Stay

Embassy Suits

They were SO, SO sweet to us, and their pool is HUGE! Definitely a 10/10

Have you ever been to Puerto Rico? If you have what was your favorite part of the trip? If not what on this list looks like the most fun? Let me know in the comments below!

Love you all,

  1. Yes, I went with my family there in 2012. My husband has family there, and one of the aunts was SO hospitable. I think I may have a picture of that same road with the blue house! I was amazed by the cobblestone pavement, and I love the different colored houses!
    I loved standing in different parts of the El Moro fort and looking down at the waves crashing on the rocky beaches below.
    Probably my favorite thing was visiting the rain forest and getting in the water at a certain spot very close to a waterfall. There was a bigger waterfall up where we parked that was very full, as there were a number of heavy downpours that week that we were there.

    1. Yes! The rainforest sounded like so much fun, but since hurricane Maria hit the island, many of the roads have been closed off 😞. And that’s SO FUNNY that you took a picture by the same road!
