  • Do not miss this fort, in addition there is a little train that takes you from the center of San Juan to the fort. There are very nice views and history it's very interesting

  • Actually feels like part of the Caribe Hilton if you are staying at the Hilton. Monumental and great, but perhaps not worth a special visit, but a huge plus for the Hilton guests.  more »

  • It is open but still under construction. Nice to be able to experience the landmark and do a little research about it.
  • Its a shame this structre is closed,because they can repair it. But it is still amazing that its still standing. The views from this area are fantastic. You can see the damage it took from the hurricane.
