“It's just a street”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

Just a street with a bunch of bars, everything has to close at a certain time because of the city ordinance. There are better places to go in the Island.

“You must visit Calle San Sebastián during the January Celebrations.”
Reviewed January 20, 2013 via mobile

All year round, the Calle San Sebastián is part of one of the most historically and architecturally rich cities in the Western Hemisphere. During the January Fiestas de la calle San Sebastián celebration is on par with a mini version of Brazil's Carnival. A must see

“Bars, Bars, & more Bars”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Famous for it's Festival de la Calle de San Sebastian in January, this streets has a large number of bars, one after the other. They are always full and mostly everyone keeps coming to their favorite for long periods of time. Never mind that it should be a religious celebration, though. People gather to drink!

“Annual celebration”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

This street is famous for its festivals that are held once a year. They are very busy, perhaps too busy by the Puerto Rican youth. There are crafts and musical performances.
