You walk and see the cruise ships , get a little of old sanjuan (it is in Old San Juan). You can walk around to fast foods or great Criollo Cuisine. Stores on the stroll or walk to the Morro. Nice sit down and picture time. Best of all other than parking no need to spend unless you want to... More

This is the place to walk and enjoy the local culture. On Saturdays and Sundays you will always find music and food. My favorite is the local music where people come to sit and listen and participate

It's a nice route to take with your loved one(s). It overlooks the ocean and it's a nice walk to take both in the morning and evening when the sun is not at its peak.

I prefer to approach the Paseo from the town - to walk down Caleta de San Juan from the Catedral de San Juan and through the gate to the Bay. To your right is the Paseo del Morro (I'm told it's not safe to walk there at night) and a beautiful view of the bay and the ocean. Castle Morro... More

Old cells were really cool and creapy, they had the world cup on display which was an added bonus. Felt the old spirts roaming around

If you love history this paseo will take you back in time while you walk towards the San Juan door, they just expanded the walk so you can enjoy more the view to the ocean.

Beautiful anytime of day, but best at sunset. Don't miss it when visiting Old San Juan. The fountain is worth a stop, as is the view behind it! The feral cats just added to the charm.
