“If you love history, you must tour these 2 forts!”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

$5.00 per adult, free for kids gets you in both forts. Lots of history and beautiful views from the top of both- our best scenic pictures were taken here. Our 10 and 11 year olds loved exploring these. We enjoyed the walk between the 2 forts and walking in Old San Juan after visiting the forts.

“If you make it to Old San Juan, this is a must stop”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

San Juan National Historic Site is one of only 20 National Parks included in the World Heritage List of the UNESCO. Don't pass it up. The forts are great historic sites and offer wonderful photo opportunities.

“Castillo del San Cristobal and Castillo San Felipe del Morro”
Reviewed 17 July 2014 via mobile

Located in Old San Juan, we arrived at the San Cristobal adults cost: $5.00 children under under12 yrs old, free. This is for both Forts. There is a trolley that will transport between Forts. Near the Morro, you can enjoy a snow cone or helado while you watch the locals fly kites.

Historical, beautify and well done. Guided tours every hour were short but informative. Please note there is a tram that runs every 20 ish minutes between the forts.
