The old fort is fascinating, well preserved property for nice long walks and views of the seas. Lots of spots to sit for a picnic, or just enjoy the scenery. Lots of walking if you want to get up close, parking is not very close so be prepared to walk a bit to see everything. We did not go very far into it, but could see lots who did and we enjoyed it from our distance. The scenery alone was worth the stop.

Kids has a great time in old San Juan. Food is overpriced but well worth the day trip. Great historical spot to visit while you are in PR

Was here for a day on my weeklong Royal Caribbean Cruise. It was my favorite cruise stop of all the places I’ve been...and there have been many. Even with the recent hurricane, the pure beauty of the island shines through. The mixture of history and nature are a perfect pair. #supporttourism
