Great location while walking in the Old City

Neat place to visit when strolling around Old San Juan, cobble stone streets are the perfect setting for outstanding photos. Street cafes are common in the area as well.

If you have a day to spend in old San Juan, I recommend walking Calle del Cristo. This street is unique, filled with activities, lined up with restaurants, and places to visit to sample Old San Juan. It is very popular among out of town and local visitors. There are gift shops and high end product stores if you care... More

This cobble-stoned street is unique in the World. You will fin great restaurants there or nearby, walk past an old convent, now converted to a first rate hotel, see the second oldest church in the Hemisphere at the top and a small chapel, next to a children's park at the bottom. Don´t miss it.

The history is so rich here and this place was so crowded when we drove around on our first day. We visited it as part of our Flavors of San Juan Tour and I was "moved" with the history and the spiritual feeling you get from just being here. You have to just go!

This is just basically one of the streets in Old San Juan with some shops and restaurants. I'm surprised it has its own breakdown honestly. We went into a few of the stores, but it wasn't anything spectacular by any means.

If your in Old Town, you will most likely find yourself on this street. So many places to eat and so many shops. A must on your tour.

We walked from the Fort through Old Town and discovered this incredible area of beautiful streets, chapels, bars and restaurants, and gift shops. There were rum tastings in some of the bars, food specials, and several activities including a skateboard competition. There are numerous places for outside dining in the shade, as well as fine dining in historical buildings. Our... More

Walk along this street (southwards) and you will pass the El Convento Hotel, once a religious Convent built in 1646 and was inaugurated as the Monastery of Our Lady Carmen of San José in 1651. RDirectly across the street is the Cathedral of San Juan Bautista where the remains of Juan Ponce De Leon are interned. The Cathedral is one... More
