A group of us are heading to Puerto Rico Memorial Day weekend. We're in our mid 20's and are trying to figure out where the best place to stay at is. I've heard Old San Juan can be fun for younger adults as well as Isla Verde. We'd like to stay at whichever place is closest in comparison to South Beach (Ocean, Collins area). You know, restaurants, bars, stores along the beach, etc. We don't want to stay anywhere where we'd have to walk or catch a cab to get to the a local restaurant or fun daytime bar. I hear Old San Juan has more to offer as far as daytime bars, restaurants, activities goes. It's about a 15 minute cab ride from either place, but they said it can cost about $25. I'd rather spend that on a better hotel closer to a better place.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
