One of the oldest fortresses in America. It is wonderful to walk inside the Morro and read about Puerto Rican history.

Forest
“El Yunque Rain Forest is the only tropical rain forest in the US National Forest system. Ample rainfall (over 200 inches a year in some areas) creates a jungle-like setting – with lush foliage, waterfalls and rivers. Hike along the trails that cover miles of breathtaking terrain. The rain forest is located in the NE corner of Puerto Rico, with the main entrance in Rio Grande, just off Rt 3, on Rt 191.”

Castle
“Built in 1634 to protect San Juan from land attacks, the San Cristóbal Fort is the largest Spanish fort in the Americas covering some 27 acres of land. At the beginning of the experience, you can watch a short film that explai­­­ns the history of the fort and listen to an orientation offered by the staff every hour. Inside, you will find a main plaza used for troop formations and practices, a chapel, troop quarters, tunnels used by soldiers, artillery, and more. The observation post located in the third level gives you a beautiful ocean and city view.”
