The site is well preserved and the history is well documented - the biggest European fortification in the Americas. History is well documented Well preserved and the history is fascinating, considering the site was used during world wars. A must for history and military buffs.

I'm sorry, I am not currently in Puerto Rico at the moment. I know power has returned to a few places within Old San Juan - so that's a start. Sorry I couldn't be more help. I'm not sure when the National Parks will open. If you are going and want to walk boardwalk next to the walls of the fort, you may be able to go to San Juan gate over by Del Morro (the other fort in Old San Juan) and follow the path there.
If you are looking for some visual representations, you can always check my YouTube page at Josh the Travel Guy. I have a host of videos on Old San Juan and beyond. These were all pre-Maria though.
