San Juan, Puerto Rico—22 Jump Street (2014)
Puerto Rico is known for its beautiful shores, cultural contributions to dance and music, and delicious food. But if you’re a fan of the movie 22 Jump Street (sequel to the movie 21 Jump Street, which was based on the TV series of the same name), the city of San Juan can offer more than an exciting night on the town.
Set in the fictional Puerto Mexico, the action-comedy follows two undercover cops as they attempt to bust illegal spring break activity. The film—starring Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill and Ice Cube—features tourist favorites throughout Condado and the surrounding neighborhood. To really absorb the movie’s vibes, you can take a shot at the infamous Senor Frog’s (going by a different name in the film), opt to stay at the AAA Three Diamond Caribe Hilton hotel (where part of the Lamborghini scene was filmed), or spend the day at the nearby beach.
The island’s white sands and Spanish Colonial buildings have also been the backdrop for films like Amistad, Bad Boys II, Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights and Fast Five, making San Juan a hidden treasure for film buffs. iStock
