“Beautiful sights”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

Lovely day for a walk and see the sights....People flying kites and breeze was welcomed. Nice shops and not overly priced. Friendly people and felt safe in the environment.

“Great Spot”
Reviewed 27 February 2013

Very nice place to see and meet the locals and tourists. A very busy place on the weekends. It is located close to the cruise ship docks and within walking distance of many of the attractive tourist attractions including two Spanish forts, a church and cemetary.

“People watchiing spot”
Reviewed 15 November 2012

Very nice square, to sit and watch the people and time go by. Better done early in the morning or late afternoon. Lacking trees, it can get very hot at other times of the day. Nevertheless the location allows for looking at cars and people go by; constant traffic into the Old City.

“It's like being in Spain, surrounded by the Caribean Sea!!!.”
Reviewed 18 September 2012

The plaza gets crowded on week ends. Once or twice a month the municipality of San Juan give shows and concerts. There are many bars and restaurants at San Sebastian St. and nearby Casa Blanca, the house built for the first governor of the isla nd back in the 16th century and El Morro;the monumenal Spanish fortress.
