This was on my checklist but I stumbled upon it while exploring. The statues and gardens are beautiful and the waterfall is a nice place for a photo-op

This area was filled with food carts and stands selling unique arts. It is a very lively area during the weekend from afternoon till night. Also if you are driving there is a cheap parking lot on this rode.

Great view, romantic, quiet and fun! Its a great choice if you want to walk after dinner or carry on the last glass of wine you are downing that night. The view is magical with the old buildings around it and the water on one side. You can take romantic pictures if walking with your loved one or super fun... More

This is a great walk on your way to the shore. Lots of local charm. It leads to Passeo El Moro that takes you out to the old fort. A very charming part of old San Juan.

Great views on your way from one end of town to the other make this walk well worth taking. If can be warm so judge the sun and heat before starting off.
