sumptuous after dinner walk with the family.

Beautiful walk with the family after dinner. Grab a pirogua or a limbel from one of the street vendors, see the sculptures and watch the jumping fish.

Having been to Rome, Marseille, Barcelona, Tulum, Florence, Piza, Naples, Capri, Chichen Itza, Monaco, Coba, the only place that makes me feel history more than Paseo de la Princesa is Pompeii. Walking along the old city walls is amazing and how they have incorporated restaurants, the plaza, artists and everything else along it without taking away from it is wonderful.... More

Do not forget the sun block when you take this walk in the day time. Beautiful scenery, and if you are a history buff very nice outing. There are signs all along the walk telling you fascinating facts about the area, I loved it!

Not impressed with activity and vendor tables during the day. Went on Sunday night and loved it. More vendors. Music. Views. Fun. Restrooms are not easy to find. CVS closes theirs. Restaurants in the area are numerous.

If you enjoy walking, this is indeed the place to be. The fountain is amazing and you can walk by and through one of the seven historical doors of Old San Juan. You will also pass by the walls of El Morro and the San Juan Bay. Walking shoes are a must along with a bottle of water and hat.

If you descend from the hustle and bustle of Old San Juan through the city gate, you will find this lovely path that is dotted with plaques telling you the story of the area. The path is paved and not hilly like the rest of Old San Juan with plenty of benches and overlooks so that you can take it... More

My husband and I stayed in San Juan for a night after disembarking a cruise and after the long week we weren't up for anything TOO exciting and the staff at our hotel recommend walking over in the early evening and I'm so glad we did as it was a little street fair complete with drinks, snacks, dancing and vendors....

Nice views and you get up close to the history. Be prepared to walk. You can take this all the way around to get to the San Juan Gate and then on to El Morro.

One of the most beautiful promenades in the Caribbean!! Centuries ago is was enjoyed by the gentry and now is enjoyed by everyone. Recently restored you will be delighted by wonderful views of the bay, water fountains, sculptures, gorgeous gardens, wonderful restaurants and small carts or kiosks of artisans and vendors. While walking you could enjoy a delicious and refreshing... More

Visit the Paseo and check out the vendors up and down the path. There are historical signs with interesting tidbits all along this walk beside the old city walls.
