More than one vacation is required to explore all that Puerto Rico offers. With its seven square blocks of cobbled streets, Old San Juan, established nearly 500 years ago, delights families with centuries-old forts, as well as art galleries, cafes and boutiques. The forts, the oldest European constructions in the National Park Service, along with the ancient city walls and the governor's mansion, have been designated a World Heritage site.

Beyond San Juan, there's much to see and do. On the "mainland," hike the rainforest, explore caves, and snorkel through schools of rainbow-colored fish. On Vieques and Culebra, Puerto Rico's offshore islands, enjoy a laid-back, uncrowded Caribbean idyll.

Be sure to check out our exclusive Caribbean Vacation Guide for Families, offering plenty of useful information about various Caribbean islands!
