Where to go!: Go to El Morro in Old San Juan to see a six-level fortress (the Caribbean's largest) dating back to the 1500s and incredible views of San Jan Bay. For further 1500s fun, go to La Fortaleza, which was originally built by Charles V to ward off attack by Caribe Indians, but has since been converted into an opulent governor's mansion.
Considered holy by ancient civilizations and rumored to be visited by aliens, El Yunque rainforest is a spectacular aggregation of vegetation and wildlife. The forest is home to 150 fern species, brilliantly colored flowers, and the nearly extinct Puerto Rican parrot. It lies only 45 minutes from San Juan near Luquillo. For nature's magic show, wear your goggles at night and go kayaking in a lagoon beneath a crescent moon to see a dazzling display of bioluminescence. The greenish sparkle is actually the light of thousands of glow-in-the-dark plankton, but to the casual observer dipping a paddle into the deep, it looks like illusory pixie dust.
