3. Dorado – an affluent, safe suburb 40 minutes west of San Juan (without traffic). This area has some of the most expensive real estate in PR. Its home to Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve. There are lots of freshly-migrated-from-the-mainland people here, a bilingual school, good restaurants and educated business people. The Dorado bubble is full of lovely dinner parties, sunrises on the beach and safety—but it will cost you.
4. Fajardo – located east of San Juan, Fajardo is known for its boating and has the largest marina on the island, Puerto del Rey as well as a luxury resort, El Conquistador. Beautiful beaches, excellent seafood and affordable housing make Fajardo an excellent choice for families.
