I posted this topic on the San Juan forum yesterday, and decided to follow up with a post on the Key West forum today:
My wife, 2 sons (18 & 20 ys) and I are planning a vacation for the first week of March, but can't decide between San Juan PR and Key West FL. We have never been to either city, and wonder which would be best for us. My wife and I are not seeking "high adventure"...we're happy walking a beach, window shopping, eating at local pubs. The boys will probably want to do some snorkeling, parasailing. We would really appreciate an honest comparison of these two vacation spots... pros & cons, similarities & differences. We don't plan to rent a car...and we're more inclined to seek out a budget hotel vs. high end resort. Thanks in advance for your help!
