Get Thee to a Convent in Old San Juan

El Convento, originally a 17th century Carmelite convent, has been listed as one of the world’s best places to stay by both Condé Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure magazines. It’s difficult to believe that this Old San Juan landmark, kitty-corner to the town’s Cathedral, served as a dance hall and flophouse before becoming member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World.

Take breakfast al fresco under the shade of an ancient loquat tree in the central patio and try the banana nut pancakes with maple syrup.

El Convento guests can enjoy the vibe of Spanish colonial San Juan, plus Puerto Rico’s surf scene because they have Beach Club privileges at El Convento’s sister properties on the sands of Condado Beach.
