Traveling to Puerto Rico first two weeks of 2021

We're taking a chance and traveling with our three adult kids in their 20s to Puerto Rico for two weeks following Christmas (2020). We know about the COVID-related guidelines and requirements and will monitor them before we go (and fortunately, all of our reservations can be canceled). There are a lot of different tours and beaches. We're wondering if anyone who has visited PR since Hurricane Maria has any tips or suggestions for a must-do. We're looking for things that are not the obvious ones on all the lists. The large national rainforest has a number of options, for example. Thank you in advance!

This doesn't answer your question about after Hurricane Maria, but we were staying in San Juan several years ago and did a day trip which we signed up for at the hotel, to the Ariciebo Radio Telescope and Camuy Caves.

Ariciebo has one of the largest radio telescopes in the world, but there is something on the website about the visitors center being closed now for maintenance. I don't know how that would affect your travel later. It was very interesting for all ages.

Camuy Caves are the third largest underground cave systems in the world.

My husband, my high school age son and I enjoyed them both very much. The group stopped for lunch at a roadside stand and had local food.
