 Want to spot my friends while walking through Old San Juan?

Try entering Fort San Cristobal from Calle Norzagaray (right before reaching Plaza Colon). As you walk up the few steps before entering the facility and the gift shop, look at the fort walls on your right – we often hide in visible wall holes to escape the heat. Good luck!



  1. Three adults seeking San Juan City tour with pick up at Royal Caribbean terminal in am and drop off at air port on February 22 2014. (drop off at airport no later than 4:45 pm.)

    We’re able to walk but have luggage so it’s not practical. If available, what is the rate?

    Thanks! / Sid Anderson

  2. Hi, I took a cruise with Holland America about 20 years ago and we visited an open museum/art gallery within walking distance from port. Any idea what that was? I believe there was art, music and banners but have no idea what it might be.
    Thank you – looking forward to visiting again soon.

  3. Hi Jody, there are several art galleries in Old San Juan. There is the Museo de San Juan, Galería Nacional,and the Cuartel de Ballajá also has various museum exhibits and galleries to name a few. Old San Juan changes a lot though and chances are the place you visited 20 years ago has either moved or closed.
