So you've decided to spend a weekend in Puerto Rico. Three days is enough to see plenty, but nowhere near enough to see it all. How should you allocate your time? Relax; we've got you covered.

This three-day itinerary lets you enjoy a few different sides of Puerto Rico. You'll start off in Old San Juan, the historic and cultural center of the island, and home to some of its best museums, monuments, shops, restaurants and hotels. Day Two will take you out of the city, to a tropical rainforest, a beautiful beach, and a unique, finger-licking dining adventure. Your last day is reserved for the beach, the shops, and the casino.

Remember to pack the following:

  • At least one good pair of shoes: the trails in the rainforest require good walking shoes, and you'll want to be comfortable as you explore the old city.
  • Light, summer clothes: It's almost a sure bet that you won't need coats and sweaters here.
  • Sun block: whether you're walking the streets or lazing by the ocean, sun block is your friend in Puerto Rico.
  • Your camera: You'll be happy you did.
