Living in San Juan
The vibrant capital of Puerto Rico, San Juan, is the island’s biggest and most populous city. It’s a place where the past, the present, and the future sit side by side, and where 500-year-old forts are just blocks away from a brand-new, high-tech plaza. This is a city that loves joy—San Juan residents are known for their welcoming spirit and readiness to celebrate life. Whether San Juan is hosting an impromptu dance party or one of the city’s famous festivals, there’s always a sense of fun in the air. Thanks to its location on the coast, San Juan has a laid-back, beach town vibe that manages to co-exist with the city’s status as an urban capital. In some ways, San Juan resembles other major American metropolises, with a downtown financial district, trendy hipster neighborhoods, comfortable suburbs, and tourist hotspots. But it’s San Juan’s mix of beaches, multiple cultures, and Boricua pride that make the city unique.
