Location and photo opportunity is pretty much it. If you are there, it's worth the time to think about cemeteries and islands.

Take some time and ponder the past, your own mortality, and the magnificent views of the sea! Very picturesque.

Our 'guide' kept referring to this cemetery as the underground hotel which we found funny. nice guide, well kept to their standards and some very old headstones. if you like cemetery's it is worth a look but I wouldn't plan a whole day adventure.

While visiting the cemetery we were able to see many wild parrots grassing on the lawn near us. The cemetery was beautiful and very unusual looking.

If you are visiting Castillo San Felipe del Morro leave yourself an extra 30 minutes to make a visit to the cemetery. It is directly beside it and very cool to see.
