Calle San Sebastian is beautiful. However young people should definitely go during the Sanse festival. There is so much more to experience and parties are going on all day.

The music was varied with multiple band stands. There were huge crowds but even with a great deal of drinking, they were well behaved. We parked... More

If you go to Old San Juan you just have to go to San Sebastian. My favorite bar is Nono's Bar. The street is even better at night time, very lively and fun.

Would definitely recommend this to single guys looking to pick up good looking classy women. All kind of music is played here and there is not only bars and pubs... More
