Old San Juan
A picturesque and cobbled area with a colonial air. A complete tourist enclave.
Cobble stones with lots of history.
If you want to travel back in time and get to know how colonial America looked like in the 16th century, one of the best preserved places with the same architecture and cobblestones from back then is the area of Old San Juan, the old part of the town in San Juan, Puerto Rico. It’s located on San Juan Island, which is connected to the main island of Puerto Rico by roads and bridges. This tourist enclave has its own value due to the different coloured colonial mansions that line its picturesque cobbled streets, but here you'll also find most of the city's museums, monuments and souvenir shops. If you are travelling with young children and they get tired of walking, there's a free public transport service in the area of Old San Juan offering you a comfortable visit.
