Welcome to LodgingGuide's hospitality industry listings for the San Juan area.
Located below the Tropic of Cancer, where the Atlantic Ocean ends and the Caribbean Sea begins, is the year-round tropical paradise of Puerto Rico and its capital city San Juan. Old San Juan with its narrow cobblestone streets is the only surviving walled city in the Caribbean, with buildings preserved from its 17th century roots as a Spanish colony. The island of Puerto Rico is part of the U.S. commonwealth, and El Yunque Rainforest, a short trip from San Juan, is the only U.S. National Forest that is also a tropical rainforest. Puerto Rico has many natural and manmade attractions that are one of a kind, including an immense underground system of rivers visible in the Camuy Caves, and the world's largest radio telescope at the Arecibo Observatory, enough to fill any vacation agenda with worthwhile sights and activities. The local cuisine is Spanish, Creole and Indian, but many of the world's cuisines also are represented here, due to Puerto Rico's worldwide appeal. Snorkeling, scuba diving, windsurfing, deep-sea fishing, and sailing are popular activities here, as are tennis and golf. In addition to enjoying famous musicians at the outdoor concerts, San Juan also offers excellent theatre, dance and opera presentations. Most of the major hotels provide excellent nightclubs and gambling casinos, and the island has almost 300 miles of beautiful beaches. Shopping alternatives in San Juan are as diverse as the amusements, natural attractions and outdoor activities, from the mundillo lace and small carved wooden santos found in the small shops run by local residents to major world chains. The U.S. dollar is the official currency, and the residents all speak both Spanish and English.
