“Charming walk”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

This is a lovely place to walk. You can follow the old city wall, walk by the sea and make your way to the fountains.

“Quaint corner”
Reviewed 30 November 2013

It's a beautiful part of Old San Juan, worth of visiting and taking several pictures. I recommend going there very early in the morning or just before sunset, when the sun is not that strong.

“gorgeous day or night”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

Lots of vendors, lots of locals enjoying the food and the music. it is very hot along the wall in full sun but is worth it for the photo opportunities. Every turn had something new to see.. and it was interesting to see how thick the wall was at the opening. we were lucky enough to be there at all times of the day and on different days of the week- Sunday night there were lots of families and it was decorated for the holidays - parking was a nightmare in the side lot with long waits to exit with the traffic- so taxi is easier to get here. Lots of people with the cruise ships. Try the food- experience the lifestyle that these wonderful people want to share with you. and dont forget the bug spray- we encountered a lot of mosquitoes.

“Must do this while in San Juan”
Reviewed 21 November 2013 via mobile

Lovely stroll heading west towards the "Raices" fountain. There are a few venders, but not too cluttered with them. Tree lined promenade for a lovely stroll..but don't quit at the fountain, keepwalking around the wall. Fantastic at sunset!

“Morning or early evening strolls are wonderful here”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

We were fortunate enough to have time to take a walk here in the early evening and in the morning. Both were great, not too hot or too crowded. The views are different too depending on the time of day, so we got some wonderful pictures both times. It's nice to take a break from the "hustle" in the old town for a short time. We are so glad we took the time for a nice, relaxing stroll. You can get here via the San Juan Gate, close to the cathedral or from cruise ship Pier 1. The Paseo de la Princesa joins the Paseo de El Morro. Currently that walkway is under construction near the fort and will eventually go all the way around the front of the fort. For now, you can take it a short distance where you will eventually get to a construction gate, just turn around and retrace your steps.
