Known as the "Land of Giants" in honor of its celebrated residents--including poet Julia de Burgos and baseball player Roberto Clemente--Carolina makes a living as both an industrial center and a hub of tourism.
Get outdoors at El Yunque Rain Forest and Condado Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Carolina: Kayaking & Canoeing (in Fajardo) and Luquillo Beach (in Luquillo). And it doesn't end there: appreciate the extensive heritage of Sitio Histórico de San Juan, take a memorable tour with Tours, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Catedral Metropolitana Basilica de San Juan Bautista.

For traveler tips, ratings, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Carolina online sightseeing planner .

Newark, USA to Carolina is an approximately 8-hour combination of flight and car. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Newark to Carolina. Expect much warmer temperatures when traveling from Newark in April; daily highs in Carolina reach 87°F and lows reach 75°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 11th (Sat) early enough to travel to Isla de Vieques.

For sixty years until 2003, most of the Isla de Vieques was closed off to the public, with the US Navy using the island's beaches and surrounding waters for drills and testing of new military machinery, such as bombs.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Sun Bay Beach and Caracas Beach. Step out of the city life by going to La Chiva and Media Luna Beach. There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Secret Beach, get great views at Puerto Ferro Lighthouse, and look for gifts at Isla Vida.
