We are planning a two or three night stay in San Juan in Feb 2012. (stopping on the way south)
Our son will be 6 yo at the time of the trip and he enjoys pirates, anything that could remotely be associated with pirates like historic neighborhoods and buildings.
I know very little about the city and at this point, all I know is that we will like to visit the fort(s).
My first thought was to stay in the Old City area. Is the Old City walkable and safe? We are not night owls but would like to be able to get a nice dinner in the evening without spending a lot of time cabbing around the city.
Also, does anyone have guide book recommendations (or websites)?
