Child free vacation

My wife and I are planning our first child free vacation. My initial plan was St. Martin, but the airfares are significantly higher than I want to spend. San Juan has much more reasonable airfares, so I am looking into Peurto Rico. It will be a 3-4 day long weekend trip. We would like convenient access to a beach, the ability to go into San Juan conveniently, at least for a day. I would like an area where there would be some bars and restaurants within walking distance so that I will not have to worry about driving after a few drinks. I would like to keep the hotel under $200 a night. The trip will be in mid June. Any suggestions on where to stay?

I would suggest the Isla Verde area. It has the nicest beach in San Juan, it's only a 10 minutes ride from the airport, and 15 minutes ride from the Old San Juan (you can the bus or cab). The El San Juan hotel has the best evening entertainment in town. The Intercontinental is located right next to the El San Juan hotel. Both hotels are right on the beach. You may be able to get the rates that you want through hotwire.com or priceline.com.

There also restaurants and shops within walking distance from the hotels.

Since you mentioned child free, I thing you may be looking for a Hotel that cateres more to Adults.Check out the Waterclub or Beach House Hotel

I agree that Isla Verde is the place for you. If the beach were not one of your priorities, for that second honeymoon I would select romantic

El Convento in OSJ (they provide free passes to the La Concha hotel pool & beach). June is low season, which means you may get lower a lower price.

Puerto Rico lacks on hotels that caters adults only, on my opinion.
