This one of the most historical areas in Puerto Rico of the spanish colonization. You can go in and see how the Castillo is and have a great view of the ocean. In this same exact area with have a big field in which we bring our children to fly kites because it's really windy in this area. Bring some water bottles and prepare yourself for a long peaceful walk in the old San Juan area. Really highly recommended to go with kids during day time.
Amazing scenery and views. Feels like you are living in history. Its hard to describe all there is to see. One day is not enough. A trip to Puerto Rico would not be the same without visiting Old San Juan and The Fort. Absolutely incredible!!!!!
