  • 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!!!!!
