This is such a beautiful place but unfortunately we never figured out how to actually get in it so we just looked from above. Still a beautiful place to visit.

Just a quick walk across the grass. Saw a lot of Iguanas. My wife wanted to come here on our last day really bad and she enjoyed it. They close at 3:00 so keep that in mind.

If you are at the fort it is a short walk down a tunnel and you end up in the heart of the cemetery. The headstones date back to the 1400's

This is a very historical and unique cemetary with an amazing view. Located on the coast in Old San Juan. It is worth a stop and see.

I love cemeteries no matter where I go, but there’s something about Hispanic cemeteries that are just so beautiful! The time and effort put into each grave site is just stunning! There’s flags, flowers, candles, relics, stones, etc left at graves. It shows a lot...More

Yes it is a short walk from the terminal, however when we arrived by cruise ship, there was a shuttle bus that would take you to old town and the walk is only about 5 minutes.
