There’s far more to San Juan than beautiful beaches. The Puerto Rican capital – the second-oldest settlement founded by Europeans in the Americas – has a charming old town lined with 16th-century Spanish colonial buildings, imposing fortresses and a vast rainforest beyond the city for ziplining, hiking and horseback riding. And the nightlife is buzzing, too. Choose one of these Puerto Rican resorts and you’ll enjoy bird sanctuaries, ice cream parlors and even wine yoga classes without leaving your hotel.

Afterwards, soak up the sun by the pool or indulge in Puerto Rican and Cuban cuisine at the Ropa Vieja restaurant.

Foodies are in for a treat at this resort on Condado Beach where dining options include an ice cream shop, Puerto Rican coffee house and cocktail and sushi lounge. Friday’s Guavate event is the real highlight, though, with local cocktails served alongside roasted pork and traditional mofongo (mashed plantain). Work it off the next day at the top-notch fitness center, or doze by the palm-tree-lined pool with ocean views.

Head straight to the bar at this celebrated resort next to the San Gerónimo Fort. The piña colada was invented here in 1954 and later named the official drink of Puerto Rico – but there are more than just cocktails on offer. The hotel also has a huge pool complex, a playground, 17 acres (7ha) of tropical gardens, a bird sanctuary, beachfront spa, tennis and volleyball courts and several dining options including an ice cream kiosk and outpost of Morton’s Steakhouse.

There’s no need to squeeze next to strangers in the jacuzzi at this Spanish-style hotel villa, less than a block from the beach in Condado. Its outdoor tub is swimming-pool size and Puerto Rico’s largest outdoor jacuzzi, so there’s always a spot to soak in the blissful warm water while gazing out across the ocean. Don’t miss dinner at French restaurant Niche Bistro, a tiny temple of fine dining loved by local foodies.

    Business travelers won’t need to worry about traveling from this hotel in front of San Juan Bay. The property is just 10 minutes from the international airport, five minutes from Old San Juan and is right at the heart of the Puerto Rico Convention Center District. That’s not to say working will be easy: the fourth-floor infinity pool, full-service spa, sushi bar and poolside restaurant could prove more than a little distracting.
