Founded by the Spanish in 1521, San Juan is the oldest city under U.S.
Explore San Juan's surroundings by going to Museo del Tabaco Caguas (in Caguas), Trollbeads (in Canovanas) and El Yunque Rain Forest (in El Yunque National Forest). There's much more to do: get to know the fascinating history of Old San Juan, see the sights as you ascend with a climbing tour, let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, and skim along the rocks with a canyoning and rapelling tour.

For maps, photos, where to stay, and tourist information, you can read our San Juan travel route website .

Islamabad, Pakistan to San Juan is an approximately 30-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 9 hours traveling from Islamabad to San Juan.

Albuquerque remains one of the state's secret jewels, as its tourist attractions are often overshadowed by the more popular holiday destination of Santa Fe.
On the 23rd (Mon), take in the spiritual surroundings of San Felipe de Neri Church, wander the streets of Albuquerque Old Town, and then explore the engaging exhibits at Explora Science Center and Children's Museum of Albuquerque. Keep things going the next day: engage your brain at The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History, admire all the interesting features of Petroglyph National Monument, then get engrossed in the history at Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, and finally take in the architecture and atmosphere at Albuquerque New Mexico Temple.
