Paseo de la PrincesaBask in the nighttime glow of historic San Juan. <a title="Old San Juan" href="http://www.travelchannel.com/video/explore-old-san-juan-12435" target="_blank">Old San Juan</a> is the oldest settlement within Puerto Rico, established in 1508 by Spanish explorer Ponce de Leon. The star attraction is Paseo de la Princesa, a 19th-century walkway just outside the city walls that’s home to antique streetlamps, street vendors … and plenty of inspiration for hand-holding.
El Yunque National ForestLess than an hour’s drive from San Juan is El Yunque National Forest, the only rainforest that belongs to the US Forest Service. Set foot in this exotic 28,000-acre wonderland, where a tropical monsoon climate thrives, then take a 45-minute hike up Mt. Britton -- at more than 3,000 feet high, this lookout will leave you feeling like you’re on top of the world. 960 1280
Rio Camuy Cave ParkKeep the outdoor exploration going with a visit to <a title="Rio Camuy Cave Park" href="http://www.travelchannel.com/interests/outdoors-and-adventure/articles/puerto-rican-outdoor-adventures" target="_blank">Rio Camuy Cave Park</a>. This intricate cave system, about a 1.5-hour drive from San Juan, is definitely worth the trek. Discovered in 1958, the cave park is home to underground waterways carved out by the third-largest underground river in the world. Just make sure you call before going; the park closes if it gets too rainy.
