San Juan, the capital and biggest city of Puerto Rico, lies on the Atlantic coast of the island. The Isla Verde resort strip, known for its restaurants, nightclubs and casinos, faces its widest beach front. Cobblestoned Old San Juan features vibrant Spanish colonial buildings and 16th-century landmarks such as El Morro and La Fortaleza, huge fortifications with sweeping ocean views, and Paseo de la Princess.
San Juan is known as La Ciudad Amurallada (the walled town) and is one of the largest and best natural harbors in the Caribbean and the second oldest European-founded town in the Americas (after Santo Domingo, officially established on 5 August 1498). The Port is one of the Caribbean's busiest.
The metropolitan area known as San Juan has three distinct areas: Old San Juan, the Beach & Resort district, and other outlying neighborhoods, the most notable being Río Piedras, Hato Rey, Puerta de Tierra and Santurce. Río Piedras was founded in 1714 but was absorbed into San Juan in 1951.
It is amazing to eat almost anything on a few slices of Dutch Crunch bread. Bakeries all over the city take pride, and with good reason, in their loaves and slices. Roxie Food Center is a plain, no-frills supermarket just outside Balboa Park, but its deli has some very tasty sandwiches. Anything in between a Dutch Crunch roll is a must in San Francisco.
The Port is one of the Caribbean's busiest. San Juan is the financial hub of the world and it is there that many U.S. banks and companies establish offices or distribution centers. San Juan is the Caribbean shipping hub and is the area's 2nd largest seaport (after New York City).

Head here to enjoy the tasty churrasco (skirt steak) and mofongo (a platter filled with plantains) for a fun night out with friends.
Sandy beaches line much of the island's coastline, and the west side of the island, where the mountains meet the sea, is home to some of the most scenic seascapes and stunning beaches in the world. The beaches around the capital, San Juan, are lined with resorts that welcome foreign visitors.
Nightlife is an important feature when visiting any area, offering visitors the opportunity to party and dance the evening away in a festive atmosphere. There are a number of clubs, bars, and lounges in the capital, and here you can find out about some of the must-visit places in San Juan for a fun night out.

There are two distinct areas, one of them being a lounge. The club is located inside Hotel El San Juan, one of the most popular and high-end hotels in Puerto Rico. Though not exclusively located in San Juan because the area around Isla Verde is part of the neighboring.
