San Juan Gate is actually the point of departure from the city to the sea. The view of the sea is impressive.

The gate is a neat piece of history to see as part of walk through Old San Juan. The semblance of the gate and what it means for Old San Juan's history is important and neat to see if the tour allows.

Undergoing post-flooding repairs, but interesting nonetheless. Entrance to walk around the island just outside the city walls, when the restoration is complete.

I loved walking on this path that wraps around Old San Juan. The gate was located just at the end of the road where our hotel (Caleta 64) was located.

No tickets required! Only for the fortresses and they are cheap. The beaches are good and you can do as you like. Pretty safe IMHO.
