“Architectural Gem”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

Very enjoyable to walk the streets of Old San Juan and admire the centuries old architecture. As well as visit the shops, restaurants, and bars that are scattered throughout the area.

“Must go place”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

I like Old San juan. Love the streets, colorful homes in the streets. Amazing food choices and cheap parking areas. I would suggest to enjoy the city while walking instead of roaming in a car.

“Old meets modern”
Reviewed 7 May 2014 via mobile

The colors are very bright and vivid. There's so much history within this city. The cobblestones and painted houses are a sight to see. You can walk around aimlessly and feel the vibe around the streets.

“half a day trip”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

It was fun but we went on a Monday morning (10AM) and there wasn't much going on. We stopped into a few little shops but it was pretty touristy stuff (beach towels, tshirts, and "crap") You can see everything in about half of a day I think. At nighttime there are bars to go to but we stayed in Condado so it was a $15 cab each way. We figured we would go out in the immediate area for the 2 nights we had.
