The views were beautiful from the top of the building. $7 for adults and children under 15 are free. We enjoyed just taking pictures and reading about the history of how they defended Puerto Rico. It’s a lot of walking around, so just be prepared.

Well preserved and full of history. It is a must see if you are in San Juan. The various exhibits are informative, allowing you to learn the history of Europeans in Puerto Rico and the role of the island in the Spanish American war.

I really enjoyed our visit to El Morro. I don't see how anyone could not - it's a very well preserved fort that looks out into the harbor. We stayed for about an hour maybe a little more, reading about the history of the fortifications...More

San Juan was a stop while cruising on the Carnival Magic. While there was an excursion listed to see the forts, they are actually in walking distance of the pier if you don't mind walking for a bit. I wouldn't waste the money on the...More
