We walked down this stretch just to see the fountain. I took several pictures of the fountain. It was getting ready to storm though so we didn't spend too much time hanging around. It's pretty and neat to see if you are in the area already, but I wouldn't make a special trip.

This place is beautiful. Must go to the cafe and sit on the patio! The service, although slow, is fantastic and the food is incredible. One of the best places I went to during my trip.

Walked down the paseo with the family and took pics at sunset by the fountain. There were vendors selling food and trinkets along the way but it was not too crowded. It was a beautiful end to the day.

Beautiful walk down the tree-lined promenade. Stop in to the Puerto Rico Tourism Company to see, which is a stop along the promenade, where you can get a break from the heat and visit the old jail cells "dungeons" out back. This building used to be the old jail before housing the tourism company. There is also an ever changing... More

Had dinner here at the outside restaurant on a Sunday night. The food was good, although the service was a little slow-- but we were on vacation ... so we just relaxed. That night the locals were walking up and down the sidewalk and vendors selling drinks. A band played and folks sat and enjoyed. All in all, a nice... More

It's a little off the beaten path from the free trolley and the cruise port, but it's definitely worth the walk!

I love walkin in this area. The trees surrounding the streets are the most gorgeous I have seen anywhere. The artisans market is the best place to shop for authentic and fairly priced items. When I am in San Juan I spend an entire day just walking around exploring, shopping and eating at cafe La Princesa

the beautiful vegetation, under the tree restaurant in the middle of the walk, the sea , and the whole area transports you to the colonial era.

This is a 1 mile walk along the outside of the city walls. There's not a lot going on during the week-day but scenery and cats. But its gorgeous and relaxing. Well worth a stop if you are touring the Old San Juan area. PS- bring treats for the gatos. Many are sweet and almost all are fixed with a... More
