If you want the best views in San Juan and probably one of the best in Puerto Rico take a walk to the top of the old fort at San Cristobal. It is immaculately kept and preserved and the staff were very helpful. You can see miles and miles of the beautiful beaches and water crashing on the rocks. Also the history of the fort is very interesting. Don't miss it!

We had a day before getting onto our cruise ship, so we decided to check out San Cristobal. What a great idea. There were many corners and levels to explore, fantastic views, helpful staff and informative labels. Loved that you had so many places to explore.

Lots of history, very scenic. It's not a life altering experience or anything, but it's cheap and if you like history at all, you'll enjoy it. It's a good way to begin your exploration of San Juan because it gives you a nice overview of the city. The staff there was very helpful.
