Last year i visited Castillo San Felipe del Morro in Puerto Rico and it was significantly more impressive and interesting.

This stop was included in our city tour. The admission includes a headset that allows you to program the language and get a guided tour similar to the sort of audio tour you get at an art museum.

We stopped here for pictures and some locals were selling their art and other items. Very neat to see the old guns and things outside the fort, and a great view of the ocean.

While the fort is not huge compared to other forts throughout the world, it is still steeped in history. It does not take very long to tour the fort, however the historical information given, via 'portable information hand sets' is very interesting, along with the artifacts on hand for perusal. The sea/port view from the fort top is quite beautiful.

Go in the morning, it is less crowded. We took a organized city tour. The head sets provided lots of information in bothe french and english languages.
