This fort, and the other one located close by, guarded the bay. I didn't realize all the history involved there, or that it was considered the gateway to the Caribbean. We really enjoyed all the information here at this national park. We also watched the movie and it was very interested.

You can go there if you are staying at the Caribe Hilton or happen to be walking in the zone. If not, you can use your time on other beautiful attractions in San Juan...

Go here! Some history, amazing views-- inexpensive way to see the city from a cool perspective. The fee you pay to here gets you into another fort just ten minutes away with trolley available for transport during select hours

We got off the Princess and decided to go on our own. We laft the ship and walked up a long steep hill. We went to the fort, paid our fee, and went in. The fort seemed to streach down the beach for almost a mile and had at least three levels. The fort was well supplied with cannons and... More

El Morro is at the northwestern tip of Old San Juan island. It's the large fort (castillo) with the gray lighthouse tower added years after Puerto Rico's independence from Spain (only to be gobbled up by the US). Fort San Jerónimo (FSJ) is at the northeastern end of Old San Juan, east of Castillo de San Cristobal and the Capitol... More

The National Park Service has done a fantastic job with Old San Juan's forts. Rich and ongoing standing history make this a must see.

We drove 30 minutes to the location listed on Trip Advisor and ended up in the projects. I'm very disappointed in Trip Advisor for having incorrect information for tourists. Major thumbs down. Don't be fooled!!!
