As far as choosing a nice spring destination, San Juan has a lot in its favor: airfares are relatively cheap, the sun and Caribbean water are alluring, and it offers lots of rich history and culture. 'Rich history and culture' sounds like a tired parental euphemism for learning, but in this case it means great food and music and craggy old fortresses and cobblestone streets and cool people. Sign on for spring break at Hotel El Convento ("glamorous boutique hotel is filled with Andalusian tiles, mahogany beams, and lavish antiques—like four-poster beds in all 58 guest rooms"). A little engaging history plus beach time equals successful vacation on all counts.
Old San Juan Vacation package includes:
- Overnight accommodations
- Daily breakfast and lunch for two children
- Admission to the Children's Museum and a kite per child to fly at El Moro
- Admission to El Convento Beach Club
