The stroll along the Paseo de la Princesa promenade is visually interesting and historically intriguing, and provided a fascinating introduction to the origins of Old San Juan. That being said, when I first heard the name of this relaxing, tree-lined boulevard, I thought to myself,...More

My friend and I took an evening stroll here around Thanksgiving time and it was all lit up for Christmas. It looked really pretty. Vendors are locals and very friendly -consider supporting them! It was also super safe with kids and families walking around.

We walked the paseo on our way back to Condado and I would probably skip it next time. There are a few nice hotels, and it is close to Old San Juan, but there are better places to stay
