“Our vacation with a few tips for first time visitors”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

Our first visit to San Juan was in March of 2013. We rented a condo on Condado beach which was a wonderful place to stay. The beach is well maintained and beautiful. This location is close to everything you will need, shops, restaurants, bars, etc. If you want to get out and around the island the bus will take you to Old San Juan for $.75. There are also many taxi stands and getting a taxi is never a problem. It is also very walkable. Walking is great. You see so much more, good exercise and free! If you want to arrange tours, go to the Marriot as we did and they can book many tours including El Jungui (which we did). It was a half day trip for about $50.00 per person. The tour guide was excellent and the rain forest is beautiful. Very worth the money. Also, if you take the bus into Old San Juan there is a series of free trolleys to take you all around the area.

“Nice and very enjoyable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

This is a wonderful beach and lagoon, well kept and very clean. Nice safe open ocean swimming and in fact while we were there the ironman (woman) competition was taking place right in that area making it even more fun to enjoy.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

After seeing the Carolina and Ocean Park beaches, the Condado beach was a big disappointment. It's quite small and the buildings along the beach are just so ugly, some of them are in a very bad shape which surprised us since the most people advise to stay in Condado area.
We are glad we stayed in Isla Verde which was much nicer.

“Rocky beach”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

I had spent a lot of time on Isle Verde Beach, and then came here, figuring it was the same. nope.
There's more opportunity for high end shopping, but that's about it.
