Instituted in 1521, San Juan is the second-oldest European-founded town in America and the oldest under U.S. administration. Shoehorned onto a small island that overlooks the entrance to San Juan harbor, the old town was introduced almost a century before the Mayflower laid anchor in present-day Massachusetts, and it is now a well-known wonderland that compares historical authenticity with its vibrating modern energy.
Beyond its ancient 15ft-thick walls, San Juan is far more than a compilation of well-polished colonial-era artifacts. The city is also a collection of ever-evolving regions such as Santurce, which has raw energy fueled by street art, superb restaurants and a bar scene that takes over the streets at night. And then there are the beaches. Silky ribbons of the sand line San Juan's northern edge from rich Condado to resort-infested Isla Verde. You can land at the airport and be splashing in the blue waters about in an hour.
In early September 2017, San Juan was hit hard by Hurricane Maria, a Category 5 tornado that formed hot on the heels of record-breaking Hurricane Irm. It was the biggest and strongest hurricane to make landfall in Puerto Rico in eighty-nine years. While many constructions and roads defended wind and flood damage, this city has survived wars, pirates, and storms for centuries. With the help of its energetic and capable citizens, it will rebuild and remain a lovely and captivating place it's always been.
