It was really gorgeous. It's worth to visit. I was having fun exploring the fort. It was not just walking around and taking pictures but you can also learn and get to see other points of views of Old 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

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).

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!!!
