  • Hey must stop for the quintessential view from the point of Old San Juan. There's a beautiful cemetery here. You'll find children flying kites because of the beautiful breeze. Not a lot of place to take refuge from the Sun, however. Other museums and beautiful architecture surround this beautiful area.
  • Very well maintained and the architecture is so attractive and entertaining
