“Will take lots of pictures!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

I did the combo ticket and save on El Morro Admission. One site ticket is $3 and combo ticket is $5. And I was glad I did that. My friends and I had a good time exploring the site. And of course, we took tons of pictures! So have your camera ready! This is a must visit place if you are around Old San Juan!

“not as impressive as el Morro”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

we bought tickets for both places, but quite frankly, we could have skipped San Cristobal and spent the time walking around in Old San Juan and probably had a better time

“Nice site!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

If you have time to do this site it's worth the time. Smaller then the other fort but still offers something different. The view of the ocean and the other fort is really nice.

“Great photo ops”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

Nice photo opportunities. Do the combo ticket and save on El Morro Admission. Watch the video to learn about the history before you start your tour.

“Absolutely Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

There is nothing bad I can say about this place it was beautiful learning the history of Castillo de San Cristobal. We took this tour while staying in San Juan for the week it only cost $3.00pp which wasn't bad since its not a guided tour. The history here is simply remarkable that you have to see it for yourself. So if you are ever in San Juan, Puerto Rico get yourself a cab and go see it for yourself and while there do some shopping and dinning in Old San Juan.
