Although there are more activities along this walk during the winter while the cruise ships are arriving, it is still worthwhile any time of year. But know that Puerto Rico is hot from March through September so be prepared for some heat. Although it is not really a problem since you can buy sodas or ice cream all over the... More

We visited here on a Sunday afternoon. There were some local musicians playing PR music, and a ton of street vendors. Found some nice souvenirs and food. A must see if you visit San Juan.

Paseo de la Princesa is a nice walk way along the old city wall near the pier area of old San Juan. There are something to learn about city. The walk is from San Justo Street and plenty of benches to sit. One can continue to walk to the Old San Juan Gate and continue to the "Del Morro Promanade".or... More

Whenever in Old San Juan, it's a Murray to visit El Paseo de la Princesa. Especially on weekends it is a fun, so much to see and enjoy place. The fountain is beautiful, the many kiosks with local artisans displaying their handmade crafts and delicacies are great to see, taste and buy as souvenirs. The trees are homes to many... More

My wife and I had dinner in an outdoor restaurant on this beautiful street. It was a very nice experience. You can sit on any of the benches and just watch people as they pass by. The sounds of the little frogs of Puerto Rico just make the experience even better. Definitely a place to take an evening stroll.

There are several ways to gain access to Old San Juan, but by far my favorite is Paseo La Princesa. It is a nicely paved walkway at the base of the great perimeter Morro wall along the bay. It begins at the port and ends at the San Juan Gate. At any time of the day it is a pleasant... More

We took this walk on a walking tour of Old San Juan. There is a very beautiful statue at the seaside end and statues and a park along the walkway. You can see starfish is the water at the sea wall. It is worth a few minutes stroll or longer for a nice rest.
