Loved the views. The walk to to the fort is great. Perfect location for a picnic. Puppies and kids can get all the running around they can handle. more »
Impressive. Take the time to walk around and explore the property. There are tons of hidden passageways and tunnels to see. Too much history to put in a Google review... just check it out! There is a $7 entrance fee for adults (each) and kids are free. This ticket can also be used at the San Cristobal Castle across the bay for up to 48 hours. Both are spectacular. Old San Juan is beautiful with these structures being at the forefront of it's history. The walls will continue to stand for centuries to come.
Very well taken care of historical site. Large grounds for some great walking. Beautiful old cemetery at one end. There is a boardwalk path along the ocean side down the stairs. Quite and serene.
