San Juan Travel Guide

Metropolitan San Juan reflects its American ties with cars that cruise down the streets and buildings that reach the sky but as the sun dips into the west, its vibrant culture tells a different tale. Music haunts the streets along with the tapping of salsa dancers and the clink of slot machines. The skyline is an undulating jumble of high-rise glass, cement structures and remains of colonial fortifications that relate the tales of times gone by. San Juan can be easily distinguished into the Old city and the new, metropolitan city.

A truly touristy destination, San Juan has meets the desires of all. Sandy beaches, glitzy hotels, ritzy casinos, structures lost in their colonial past - something for everyone, take your pick and enjoy your holiday!

Watch out for the “blue bricked streets” on the island. These blue bricks also known as adoquines were originally used as ballasts in ships. Some say the blue color comes with age and moisture while others believe that the bricks have light absorbing properties and are said to “wake up” with the shade of the sky the previous evening.
