We stumbled upon this little town square while walking around Old San Juan. It has a nice water fountain with places to eat surrounding it (including Wendy's and Subway). Great place to stop and take a rest.

This is a beautiful park with food and drink opportunities located all around. A natural breeze frequently blows through the park and makes this a very pleasant place to take a rest after a long day in old San Juan.

Lots of pigeons and a few benches, but you had to find an empty spot. Some people had all their belongings there.

Our group used this as a gathering space to meet up after free time shopping. Nice area with character, a fountain, and even a man with an ice cream cart. Take time to sit down and enjoy the surroundings.

This is a seemingly unavoidable stop if you visit Old San Juan. The free trolley stops here. Visitors probably pass through here to see other sites past Plaza de Armas. There lots of pigeons here, so the ground is littered with pigeon droppings. There is...More
