San Juan - Post Report Question and Answers

What are some interesting/fun things to do in the area? Can you recommend any “hidden gems"?

Charcot Hippie. Waterfalls and natural pool in the Sierra del Luquillo foothills. - May 2023

There are some great waterfalls in El Yunque and if you do some looking online, you'll find out about the ones that are not in the tourist books. The waterfalls outside San Sebastian are wonderful too. Visit the caves...Cueva La Ventana and Cuevos del Indio are amazing. - Jan 2014

One of the best things about being here are the beaches. There are beaches for surfing and swimming. One thing to be careful of are the riptides and undertow. If a local says a beach is too dangerous to swim then believe them. There have been several drownings while we were here. We enjoy picking a place from and just going to check it out. There are two children's museums, one in OSJ and newer much larger one in Carolina. Both are fun for elementary age set. If posted here, I would recommend getting a tourism guide book and marking off things to do. It is such a small island that it is easy to get to just about everything. - Jun 2013
