Around San Juan

Greater San Juan is a vast, often bewildering mix of residential areas and modern commercial development, but there’s plenty to see before moving on. Just across the bay is the Casa Bacardi Visitor Center, one of the great shrines to rum-making. Bayamón and Caparra offer small but important historical attractions, while the bike trails and celebrated kioscos of Piñones are great fun on weekends. Further south, Caguas is a prosperous colonial town with a rich history.
