Must do's in Puerto Rico?

Can anyone suggest any "must-do's" in Puerto Rico? My husband and I will be there for 2 and a half days (staying in San Juan), and definitely want to spend some time exploring the city, but are unsure of what to do the 2nd day. We're 35/36, active, but since I'm pregnant, not too active right now!

Well, everyone's "must do's" are different, depending on their likes.

But yes, explore Old San Juan- take your time, use the trolley or taxi to get up to El Morro, then the walk back down is easy.

On day 2- My usual Must Do suggestion:

-you could head east to El Yunque and do an easy walk, then go to the beach (Balneario Monserrate) and the kiosks there for lunch/dinner etc.

You can contact the electric boat people in Fajardo and go out and see the biobay.

or take a snorkel catamaran trip out of Fajardo to see the beautiful islands off the east coast.

Or head west along the north coast and visit Camuy Caves and stop at some of the area beaches (Mar Chiquita is beautiful, or our new favorite Puerto Nuevo).

Really, there are lots of things you can do- take a look at the above websites and see what appeals to you. There are gardens and markets, museums, food tours, etc that should work fine for you.

If you do the bio bay - only go when there is no moon or you wont see anything. Old Town is wonderful. But, you must take your time. You can spend a whole day there in the little shops and cafes.
