Don't miss taking this walk when in Old San Juan! It's especially lovely either early or late in the day, for the best photo ops. Though the Paseo takes you to the base of El Morrow, just be aware that you can't access the fort from down below. The signage is very clear about this, so shouldn't be a surprise.... More

This is a beautiful area of Old San Juan. Grab a piragua at the beginning and stroll down outside the walls of the old city. If the sun isn't too hot, keep going as far as you can. If you get too hot, go in through the old gate and explore the city streets. Great photo opps as well!

Not much to see here, but there are gorgeous views of the ocean and it's breezy and shady. Part of it was closed while we were there, apparently the path gets slippery when it has been windy or rainy.

Is a great place to go for a walk. There are beautiful views of the wall, the San Juan Bay and a nice water fountain. It takes you to the "Puerta de San Juan" (San Juan Gate). Would be the perfect place to have street performers, but there are none. If you come to Viejo San Juan, you need to... More

Nice walk and great views at Paseo de la Princesa, you can see the cruises from there, take nice pictures and also see dolphins in front of the cruises. Great to couples, family, friends or just relax if you're alone. Historicly rich.

I walked down this street in the rain for over an hour and had an amazing and peaceful time. It's great place for all ages to go for a walk or have some quiet time. Kids would especially love to explore this walk because of the cats hiding in the rocks (& kittens!) and giant starfish in the water.

Lots of local artisans sell their art/goods here. Next to one of the ancient walls of San Juan, and ocean views.

Nice walk to admire the sea by the city of San Juan. It goes by the ancient walls of the city, so you can feel history by your side.
