“Beautiful views but it can be HOT!”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Lovely walkway along the waterfront just outside the Old City walls. Try to time youur visit so you are not in the sun too much! (avoid mid day)

“Princess of Old San Juan streets”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

Think a stroll along San Francisco’s Embarcadero or San Antonio’s Riverwalk. Paseo de la Princesa is more than a street, there are multitudinous sites to visit at no cost. At Pier 2 is Puerto Rico Tourism Company (across from la Casita), where you can get a free city map that details the trolley stops. (There’s no charge for any of the three trolley lines.) It’s here I learned of the three jail cells accessed through a building with 1837 (the year constructed, not the street number) over the doorway, where there’s another tourism office. It’s next to Fuente Raices, which fountain represents Puerto Rico’s cultural heritage. The street is wide, open to the bay and cruise ships, and there are parks with street artists on certain days. There are numerous things to see, and "Princesa" leads to City Gates and Plaza Rogativa. It's not necessary to pay for a guided tour, just walk along and discover all Old San Juan has to offer.

“Calming Walk By The Water”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

I found my walk along the Paseo de la Princesa very calming and serene. It was a very nice break from from the busy and narrow streets of Old San Juan. My boyfriend and I took our time to walk along the entire passage until we reached the very end and was forced to turn back. At the end we met an amazing stray cat that seemed to have found the perfect place to relax and enjoy the ocean air.

I would suggest enjoying this walk in the morning since the you are very exposed during most of it and it could be too hot in the middle of the day.
