I attended Mass at the cathedral of San Juan Bautista. This cathedral was beautiful. It is a very old cathedral and it has so much history. I loved it, the mass was in Spanish.

Everything in San juan is walking distance.. if u don't mind the heat.. it is best to walk.. love this little shopping district. It is very hard to find parking.. usually have to pay parking coz it gets busy around here. Enjoy the area.. take your time wandering and window shopping too.
