Just stand and look to the ocean, breath taking. And during the evening is like a romantic scene. You see couples walking by as well as family groups. There is always people selling things to drink and food in affordable prices.

My husband & I were in Old San Juan celebrating our 20th anniversary. Each evening walked the Paseo de la Princesa and it was our favorite part of the day! At night, it is simply charming!

A broad walk right out side the walled city. Host fairs and artisans and local snacks. Near to where cruise ships disembark.

We really enjoyed this beautiful path along the water. Beautiful trees, ambiance, and lots of cats along the path after the red door. Went a few times and it was just so peaceful! Joggers and walkers.

Very nice place to stroll when touring Old San Juan. Beautiful statue at the end of the walk way. You can also get to the old city gate or go all the way to El Morro by following the path, though it is a dead end at the fort and you have to backtrack.

I was born and raised in Puerto Rico, about 15 minutes from Old San Juan. Paseo de la Princesa is a great place to go with your spouse, partner or family and have a relax walk along the water. You'll encounter some vendors - great window shopping - and it provides one of the historical entrances to Old San Juan.... More

Beatiful, clean. Great view of the ocean and leads into Paseo del Morro. Easy and you can go out and see some of the historicl buildings or just walk the entire thing.

was such a great walk - very pretty views (only complaint is it was really hot!) - there's a beautiful fountain and as you continue to walk down the path, there are some beautiful trees

I did not expected to see so many local vendors. Street food was not good, prices are higher and a lot of tourists. Overall experience was not the best.....
