“Outstanding coastal views of San Juan!”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

Great family location to fly kites with the kids, which we did and they loved it. All while enjoying an outstanding coastal view of San Juan. The fort is nice, but it is huge, so plan to stay for a little while to get the full experience and views. There is a free trolley/bus that transports you from fort to fort and through Old San Juan, which is very nice as well.

“Castillo San Felipe del Morro”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

The National Park was picturesque. Some stairs to climb up but the view was majestic. Don't miss the Bajada Cementerio next door.

“History at its best”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

What a wonderful excursions. I am a history buff so needless to say, I enjoyed history at its best. The tour guide was very informative about the diffrent areas of the fort. Standing lookin out over into the ocean was awesome, we were able to take some great pictures.
This is must see excursion.

“A REAL fort - expansive, maze-like, great views”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

We went with 4 teenage girls who loved it. The place was great - wish we'd had time to go to Morro. The view of the coast line and city is beautiful, and the fort was pne of the best I've been to.
