7 Cool Things to Do in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico, San Juan Guide (B): 7 Cool Things to Do in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico

The great thing about Puerto Rico is you don’t need a passport to travel since it’s an USA territory. So if you just want to hang back for the day in Puerto Rico and not explore underground caves or zipline across the Caribbean, a day strolling Old San Juan might just be the way to go. Here are a few fun things to do and see while exploring Viejo San Juan:

Start your day with an awesome morning dive off the shore (or snorkeling) with Scuba Dogs, right by the Escambron Marine Park near the Caribe Hilton Old San Juan. The shore dive was abundant with life and fairly shallow, (no deeper than 30 feet) so it’s perfect for novice divers. If someone in the family or one of your friends isn’t scuba certified, they can opt to do the snorkel or just hang out at the beautiful beach and work on their tan while you dive. Scuba Dogs had great customer service and very attentive dive masters. Full equipment rental available onsite and fresh water showers as well.

If scuba and snorkel are not your thing, go kayaking or paddle boarding at the Condado Lagoon; only a 10 minute drive (or taxi ride – NO UBER in PR) from Old San Juan. Afterwards, you can linger and enjoy the nightlife at the upscale hotels and casinos on Oceana. It’s a bit like Miami, only in the Caribbean. ......
