Tips

Stroll through San Juan's first, and still most charming, neighborhood Old San Juan is Puerto Rico's quintessential colonial neighborhood. Narrow streets and plazas are still enclosed by thick fortress walls, and bougainvillea bowers spill over exquisite facades. A walk along streets paved with slate-blue cobblestones leads past colonial mansions, ancient churches, and intriguing museums and galleries. Vivacious restaurants and bars that teem with life young and old are always nearby, making it easy to refuel and reinvigorate anytime during your stroll.

This walk is best done in the morning to avoid the afternoon heat and cruise-ship crowds. The route will take half a day at a leisurely pace, with plenty of stops along the way.

E we did this with our 4 children. Between the ages of 10 and 4. It was a fun historic day but with the humidity, kids started whining at the end. They prefer the rain forest to the city. It was great to see kite flying and families having fun on a Saturday.

Hits all the high points in Old SJ. However, I recommend ending at Barrachina for a Pina Colada.

I visited Old San Juan, Puerto Rico last year and I must say I totally fell in love with the place! The atmosphere, the people and the places are all so amazing... this is currently my favourite place in america and I hope I will be able to come back to see more of it in the future (when visiting you just can't miss the Magic Fountain show!)
