Sights worth seeing in Isla Verde
Isla Verde Beach
You'll meet plenty of interesting people at the Isla Verde beach. Located along Isla Verde Avenue right next door to San Juan's Condado Beach, this area is a mecca for watersport enthusiasts. Rental shops provide all the gear you need. Lush palm trees, lots of shady spots to sip a cool Pina Colada and a wealth of dining choices are all part of the Isla Verde vibe.
Pine Grove beach
For a quieter ocean-side outing, try the Pine Grove Beach located next to Isla Verde Beach. A reef shelters the calm waters along the west end of Pine Grove Beach, while more active waves to the east are ideal for learning to surf.
Balneario de Carolina
Carolina Public Beach is also within the Isla Verde area to the north of the international airport. This local beach features public facilities, outdoor showers, picnic tables and lifeguards.
Isla Verde casinos
From blackjack to baccarat to slots, you're sure to find the games you love at one of Isla Verde's casinos. Rub elbows with celebrities while you get your game on.
Best areas to stay
While Isla Verde does not really have neighborhood divisions, the upscale hotels cluster in the central beachfront section, while more modest price ranges are typically a couple blocks away from the beach.
The Ritz-Carlton is the epitome of glamorous accommodations, with its five-star rating, casino, swimming pools, on-site spa and tennis courts.
Get there by air or sea
Getting to Isla Verde by plane is easy, as it is adjacent to Puerto Rico's main airport, Aeropuerto Internacional Luis Muñoz Marín (SJU). A short jaunt by taxi gets you to your hotel in record time. Flights leave daily from several U.S. hubs. Air travel time from Los Angeles is approximately eight hours, while flights from New York City take just over three hours. Caribbean cruise ships also visit Puerto Rico on a regular basis.
