San Juan is recovering from last year’s Hurricane Maria, so prices are low because tourists are hesitant to come back, making now the perfect time to visit. There’s no passport needed for American citizens, and you can find flights from the East Coast for under $250. Old San Juan gives you a taste of colonial times with forts, cobblestone streets, and colorful homes. New San Juan offers a modern Caribbean city with all the luxuries and experiences you would expect. Festivals and other events occur in the city throughout the year for an authentic taste of Puerto Rican culture.
