Its a beautiful and old city. best to go when there is an event. We went during the Sofo Culinary Festival and it was a nice touch to visiting the city. Make sure to stroll during the day into the night.

We were there during San Sebastian Festival. It was the experience of a lifetime. The outdoor vendors were so unique because they were all local artists. Even men's hats were hand painted. The area is old, authentic and beautiful

We had a great time in Old San Juan. Just didn't give ourselves enough time to walk around and visit more shops. Give yourselves plenty of time and plan on doing lots of walking. A very nice experience.

Old San Juan is a great place to spend a day or weekend. We typically cruise out of San Juan and look forward to getting in a day early to walk the city, enjoy a good restaurant and do some shopping and sight seeing. Definitely take a walk up to El Morro (Fort) and take the tour.

I didn't think I would enjoy Old San Juan as much as I did. The town was beautiful and the streets were easy to navigate. There was a different landmark all over the place so we made a huge circle and saw many of the points of interest and shopped. There was a food festival and vendors in the center... More
