In Isla Verde, minutes from the beach
The San Juan Water Club is located directly on Isla Verde beach, known for its great snorkeling and kite surfing. There's not much to see in the surrounding area, though, and it's $20 cab ride to Old San Juan. Dining options in the immediate neighborhood are pricey and tend to be less than stellar.
Isla Verde feels somewhat similar to neighboring Condado, with oceanfront luxury hotels overlooking several wonderful white-sand beaches. However, the dining and shopping scenes are less impressive here. Tourists come here for two main reasons: the wonderful beaches bordering the neighborhood on the north, and the short drive to the airport, located a couple of minutes east by car. Isla Verde Avenue, the main thoroughfare in the area, is lined with self-contained hotels overlooking the sand.
Ugh, winter has finally set in. So now we're desperately planning a beach getaway for 2016 -- preferably as soon…
