The charms of Puerto Rico's capital are apparent even from the air. Azure waters front historic buildings, which eventually give way to tropical foliage. Flights to San Juan end up at Luis Munoz Marin International (SJU), named for the writer and statesman who is considered the "Father of Modern Puerto Rico." Since the island is a United States territory, it offers American convenience wrapped in sunny 80-degree weather and colonial Spanish culture.
You have several options for reaching your accommodations once you arrive from your San Juan flight. Taxi turisticos line up outside the terminals to meet arriving San Juan flights, and they use set fares to San Juan hotels by Luis Munoz Marin Int'l or to travel within the city. Larger hotels, especially those outside town, may send shuttles to you; you can also rent a car from kiosks in the airport. Expect to take free transportation to pick up your vehicle, since it will be parked away from the terminals, and remember that limos fitting up to six passengers are also available; their drivers will meet you outside baggage claim. Those with lots of time and little money can take the 40 or 45 bus to Isla Verde and the 5 bus to Old San Juan. After you've settled into your room, take a tour of the historic area, or relax on the beaches of casual Ocean Park, happening Condado, or family-friendly Escambron.

You'll have more to spend on playing the casinos, dining on Caribbean cuisine, and dancing in hopping nightclubs. Your city stay will be packed with fun events, but if you have the time, check out the rain forests, caves, and mountains just a short trip from wherever you're staying.
