Step back in time and enter the city through the historic La Puerta de San Juan, the last remaining of the six gates that once served as entrances through the old town’s protective walls. Observe the thickness of the wall as you pass through the gate, and witness the beautiful, romantic town open up before you. Try a refreshing "piragua," a popular local drink, from one of the street vendors, and stroll the cobbled streets, observing beautiful architecture of this World Heritage Site.

My wife and I loved to walk around the fort at dusk and just enjoy the beautiful ocean views. Old San Juan is a city full of culture, pastel buildings, beautiful architecture, cobblestone roads, ocean views, and so much history. Take time to slow down and just enjoy the slower pace of life.
Anyone in these reviews who said there wasn't much to see must have had their eyes closed. There is so much to do you run out of time. The people are amazing and so friendly. There are places to shop, eat, historical places to see and learn about. Highly recommended.
