I want to visit Puerto Rico in June, fly into San Juan but hang out most of the time at a Caribbean blue water beach with clear water. Does that exist? Some pictures I see of beaches there do not look Caribbean blue and clear. I would rather not drive too far from the airport....no more than 30 minutes if possible. Suggestions on hotels or places to stay that are right on a beach?
You will find blue water around the island. Near the airport there are different areas that have hotels by the beach. Just keep in mind that usually the hotels don't have the best beaches. Those are kept for the public. You can stay in Isla Verde, or Condado. There are many hotels to choose from over there. You can also walk to different restaurants and night life. A short taxi ride to Old San Juan to experience the historic part of town. There are many other beaches that Puertorricans go to but you'll have to drive either 1 hour to 3 hours to get to them.
It also depends on your budget. There are a few resorts by the beach that are really nice as well.
