Photos opportunity galore here. The Fort is a great place as well to take photos. Very clean and safe. Friendly people!

OSJ has so much to offer. The forts, cemetery, museum, restaurants, the city wall, cobblestone streets and so much more. Many shops with a variety of items.

Very nice area, colourful buildings, homes and restaurants. It is also walking distance to the Historic Fortress. The is an ongoing free tourist trolley going around. It is very busy but pleasant if you can get on it.

You can't go to San Juan without visiting Old San Juan. We took a taxi from our hotel ($15) and then just enjoyed the day walking around the city. The view from the forts are spectacular. We had no concerns for safety (officers were everywhere directing traffic). The atmosphere was very laid back and there were plenty of places to grab a quick bite to eat or something to drink.

It's fun to just walk around the area and explore the churches, stores and historical buildings. They for the most part are very well kept up when you consider how old they are.
