Old San Juan, Puerto Rico


Somehow Old San Juan, Puerto Rico manages to combine a rich, colorful history with the status of a much-sought-after resort destination. We are fortunate to have over 300 miles of coastline, architecturally significant fortresses and buildings, and an exquisite landscape. Originally, the Spaniards named the island San Juan after St. John the Baptist, and the city Puerto Rico, or “rich port”. It’s said that the native Taino Indians greeted Christopher Columbus in 1493, inviting him to take us many of the plentiful gold nuggets on the island as he wanted.  The names were eventually switched, of course, and in 1917 President Woodrow Wilson signed a law granting Puerto Rico US Territory status, thereby making all Puerto Ricans American citizens, and alleviating the need for an American to obtain a passport to travel here. This is a unique and colorful duality, the old buildings that still stand from the days of the early Spanish explorers in the midst of modern resorts and beautiful hotels. Cobblestone streets that can take you back in time, or propel you into a thriving modern marketplace.   Appealing to jet-setters and history buffs alike, the area is split up into several sections: San Juan Island, which contains Old San Juan and Santurce, bound Condado. Just South of Condado you’ll find Miramar, which is right on the lagoon. East of Old San Juan is Puerto de Tierra, and finally there is Isla Verde, a little detached from the rest.

Puerto Rico truly is the jewel of the Caribbean, and Old San Juan’s Hotel Casablanca is a shiny gem right in the middle of it all, close to ports, close to Cruise Ship Terminals, and as close as a phone call away to book your next vacation.
