Old San Juan is the oldest and most historic area of San Juan. It was originally built by the Spanish settlers after Christopher Columbus made his 2nd trip to the New World. The cobblestone streets crisscross the old city, filled with many restaurants, shops and...More
The food and the streets really reminded me of Italy. People, weather, and food there are also AMAZING! We had this local sandwich called mallorcas at La Bombonera and it's really good! And we had a whole red snapper at Los Yeyos that was really...More

Old San Juan has many attractions around the area. The main attraction is San Felipe El Morro Castle. There are museums, churches, plenty of restaurants, bars, shopping. Sightseeing views, and many more. Just start walking around and you will get the feeling of over 500 years ago infrastructure Spain like.
Best bet, if you haven't already, is Google about safety there, and where to avoid at night. Not sure if public transportation still available, after midnight, but don't use it. As others have said, stay where there are... More
Best bet, if you haven't already, is Google about safety there, and where to avoid at night. Not sure if public transportation still available, after midnight, but don't use it. As others have said, stay where there are plenty of tourists, and maybe close to your accomodation ? Every country has it's problems, and mostly at night. Like we were in Oranjestad a few years ago, and a local stated not to be out after 6 pm!! Other Caribbean cities we visited, re. cruising, I read not to go on quieter back streets, even during daylight. Read people's comments, if there are any, in articles!
