Old San Juan

Hours:  Daily 24 hours

Price:  Free admission

Type:  Neighborhoods & Districts

San Juan’s most stunning promenade was originally built in 1853, but a recent restoration has it looking better than ever. The paseo moves westward from the marina to La Puerta de San Juan and takes in lovely views of the bay and panoramic views of rocky cliffs. The palm-lined brick boardwalk takes visitors past several of Old San Juan’s most important monuments and attractions, such as the bronze Raíces (roots) Fountain, sculpted by Spanish artist Luis Sanguino, that represents San Juan’s unique cultural heritage. You’ll also come across one of the original six gated passageways into the city—the only one that remains. Informal drumming and musical performances can often be found along the pathway, particularly when a cruise ship is in town. Around midday, try a glass of piragua, a delicious mix of shaved ice and tropical fruit syrups, a San Juan tradition.
