San Juan boasts one of the largest and most celebrated art museums in the Caribbean. Housed in a splendid neoclassical building that was once the city’s Municipal Hospital, MAPR boasts 18 exhibition halls spread over an area of 130,000 sq ft.

The artistic collection includes paintings, sculptures, posters and carvings from the 17th to the 21st century, chronicling such renowned Puerto Rican artists as José Campeche, Francisco Oller, Nick Quijano and Rafael Ferrer.

But there’s far more to this cultural tour de force than just a collection of paintings. Adding distinction to diversity, the facility also boasts a 2.5-acre sculpture garden, a conservation laboratory, a theater and a good shop.

Don't miss the gardens, where winding paths invite visitors to stroll past 16 sculptures and more than 100,000 plants in a scene reminiscent of Monet’s water lilies.
