Rafael Hernandez Airport (BQN) serves the northwestern side of Puerto Rico, in the Caribbean, between the Dominican Republic and the Virgin Islands. If you absolutely cannot wait to feel the sand between your toes, Crash Boat Beach, popular for its tranquil surf, is only 11 minutes' from the airport. Renting a car will be your best transportation option, and will mean you can work your way around San Juan at your own pace.
Other attractions of the nearby town of Aguadilla include a water park and ice-skating arena. Approximately two hours' drive west along the northern coast is San Juan, the capital of Puerto Rico, and the oldest city on American territory.
If you are not in a hurry to get to the eastern side of the island, a one-hour detour inland will take you to Camuy River Cave Park, where the caves are big and beautiful.
Nonstop flights from Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) to Rafael Hernandez International Airport (BQN) will take four hours. After picking up your rental car, it's time to explore the history of the island.
Sometimes referred to as the Gibraltar of the Caribbean, San Juan was a key frontier outpost in the Spanish West Indies. The San Juan Historic Site, run by the National Park Service, manages and protects the colonial fortresses there.
