You can access from Paseo Princesa and walk to the Castilla Del Morro and then turn around. There is no access to the fort and it's a little over... More

My wife and I have just visited Old San Juan for the second time and it was more enticing this time than before....OSJ and its history is just amazing.

Have a Tour Guide explain you details about the wall. And try go when it's not too hot, especially with children. Please do bring some extra cold water, or enjoy a cold refreshing Sangria at any bar in Old San Juan!

Nice romantic walk from the old gate to the docks. Make sure to stop at the old rum resturant, they sell only Purto Rican rums.
