Amazing building and good collections. Unfortunately most of the exhibits about the pre-colonial inhabitants of the island were not yet re-opened a year after the 2017 storms. Still with the admission. Hope to return one day to see the rest.
Yesterday I visited Museo Las Americas with the specific intention of seeing the work of a young artist I had met at a gallery show,Marcelino Puig. I was pleasantly surprised and greatly impressed by the quality and power of both his paintings and his artistic...More

Little hidden gems in Old San Juan (7 Replies)
We will be returning to Old San Juan to celebrate Christmas. On our last visit we did the major historical attractions including: El Morro, Castillo San Cristobal, Museo de las Americas and Casa Blanca. We also got to see The light show of the history of Puerto Rico at Museo De Las Americas. We saw the governor's home and Capila Del Cristo but couldn't tour or go inside either. We also enjoyed walking the city along Paseo De Princesa and the boardwalk by the cruise ship piers. We also took a...More

I enjoyed a walk in the cemetery between El Morro and La Perla. Some very interesting statuary. You probably went to the cathedral, but there is also The Franciscan Chapel on Calle San Francisco.
